Never worked for a place like it. It’s the kinda place you never leave. Pay is good. Leaders care about the people. Team is willing to assist where they can.

Great place to learn and network

Loved working for this company. Great way to network. You get exposed to an engineering environment with a lot of disciplines working together for a common cause.

Amazing Opportunity

I was blessed to receive this amazing opportunity to work for DTE. Sadly, my internship is ending. They could’ve went a better route communicated that they were going to in the student program but overall this was my favorite job.

Poor experience

Worked at brpp, they should let you know up front as an engineer you will be climbing inside boilers and being exposed to arsenic environments. Didn’t pay out my vacation hours because I hadn’t accrued them yet but I very easily could have used the hours earlier in the year and it’s hard to acrue 32 hours over the last 6 weeks of the year. Took two months to get my overtime paid out. Walked me out with zero notice or warning, shady about it too come down stairs to this conference room and we’re not going to let you go back to your desk (meanwhile I had to cancel a debit card they forgot to give me and boots I never got) could have easily went to my bosses office said todays your last day and allowed me to gather my things. And when they blindside you you can’t even think fast enough to tell them off. Prior to being walked out I spent two weeks sweating all over there equipment doing inspections 12 hour days during an outage (while manager left at 230 daily and had zero idea what we were doing other than us filling him in next morning) zero training just thrown to fire. Had new hires signing off on protection with very little training. I started looking for a new job two months in.

there are some fun activities to get involved with

I like the fact that they will help you if u need food, clothing etc. Also they provide u with a 24/7 life coach that will be like your mentor, praying partner, they also have some cool clubs u can join in as well.

Great Manager, Cares about his team and the success of the site .

We have a solid team of both skilled seasoned and newer employees and everyone stops to help the new employees like me . The manager at the site makes sure safety is the most important thing we focus on each day and the management staff fosters a team approach . I am happy that i was able to join the team and work for and with people that actually care about my success .

Extremely poor culture, pay, location and benefits w/ constant, unplanned night/weekend work

Where to start...what a poor culture at the FERMI nuclear site. Constant revolving door for leadership team. Your vacation will be cancelled and your weekends will be ruined due to constant problems and planned/unplanned outages. You'll be expected to work 6 days per week whether you like it or not. Management and Human resources are shuffled around and have absolutely no clue or direct experience in the area they are responsible for. Annual incentive program is a joke as they barely offer 2% raises. The only people that receive higher wages are executive management and people they hire with no experience low in the pay band to try and retain rather than start all over with inexperienced staff. Lastly, vesting takes almost 3 years so when you hire on and realize this is a terrible place to work, you will not be able to keep your long term bonus since you are not vested. What a joke.

Great Company

Dte is a great company to work for. Pay is very competive but on the mid to lower competitve range BUT benefits are amazing in comparison to other companies/industries so it makes the company overall very competitve for total pay. Company is intentional around community service & DEI so if youre looking for purpose outside of daily task join the organization. Bad side is you really have to push for your own growth and development. Speaking about it at year end reviews and 1:1 meeting isnt enough if you really want to develop.

Not a good place to work

I was a call representative and you get treated horribly nor only from the customers but management as well. You're not allowed to use the restroom when needed. If you have an important appointment hopefully it isn't an emergency because you'll be docked down for it.
