Information Technology Co-op (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – September 22, 2017
Good place to start your career out of school. Very corporate culture. Work life balance is not great. The departments are very micromanaged. Put your head down and do your job and don't question anything.
Able to advance and try other jobs. Management was supportive.
HRMS, computer technician (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – September 19, 2017
Good place to work and have a career. Raised my family while working there. The hardest part of my job was the ride to and from work, but I was young and you do what you have to for a great job. I loved talking to the customers on the phone as I helped with time keeping problems.
Metrologist (Former Employee) – Melvindale, MI – September 14, 2017
The culture at DTE Energy has evolved over the years to focus on the engagement and development of younger employees in the work force. Unfortunately, it also diminished its focus on older workers in favor of this new paradigm. Over the last several years of my career there, I experienced multiple changes in leadership, with no real sense of consistency or engagement by the leaders. My department was somewhat isolated and often we would have limited contact with leadership to discuss and resolve issues. Consequently morale suffered, and the work environment became somewhat toxic. I am not implying that this type of situation was widespread through the company, that is just my personal experience..
Good benefits, challenging and rewarding work
Minimal contact with leadership, unresolved issues that languish
treat you Horrible from day to day. The word fired is said 50 times a day when they threaten you. You are told to be ready to urinate in bottles because breaks may never come. Lots of yelling and disrespect by supervisors. Only work here if you absolutely have to.
Very stable job, great learning experience/reputation
Co-Op (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – September 1, 2017
Pros: - Slow paced and stable - Great benefits and fair pay, but had to sacrifice some pay for benefits - Incredible learning experience in Electrical Engineering - Newly remodeled offices - Get to work Downtown
Cons: - Slow pace also means it was a little boring - Lots of entry level engineers use it as a stepping stone to move on, meaning there can be a lack of continuity in employees/knowledge - Have to endure the traffic of actually getting downtown (not bad at all if you leave at a reasonably early time i.e. 7:30 am
Summer Intern (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – August 7, 2017
I loved working at DTE Energy. Although I was just a summer student, the work felt beneficial to the company and I truly liked to environment and the people I worked with. They were honest and loving and caring and I could not have chosen a better place for a summer internship.
Flexible Supervisors and Managers, Good working environment, Gym Membership
IT Technical Analyst-Identity Access Management (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – August 2, 2017
There are specific responsibilities that occur daily however, there is nothing typical about my days. Being able to think outside of the box (within the guidelines of company policies) make my job exciting and enjoyable.
The care that the company puts into the activities they provide for the employees and the community.
Project Manager Intern (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – August 1, 2017
A typical day is a challenging atmosphere but you are surrounded by colleuges who are more than happy to lend a helping hand. The work culture is relaxing and full of resources to complete whatever the task may be. Management is open and not conservatively layered. So they are helpful and easy to communicate with. The most enjoyable part of working there is the relaxed open atmosphere and the friendliness of the individuals working there
