Corporate Communications Specialist (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIAugust 16, 2018
I was a full time contractor in the communications department. The work was fun but not challenging. No room for growth. No real interaction with management.

Stressful and minimal pay increases
Customer Care Specialist (Former Employee) –  Kentwood, MIAugust 6, 2018
DTE makes changes often and not always at the betterment of customers and employees. Last contract renewal they only wanted to provide yearly bonus and no pay increases for 4 years. This was renegotiated and there was minimal pay increases every 2 years of only 2% of hourly pay. Very disappointing and there were multiple changes made to the commission structure with no employee input.
Pros
Meals provided occasionally
Cons
Changes made to healthcare plans and commission that were difficult to acquire

Contracting at DTE
LAN Admin (Former Employee) –  Newport, MIAugust 6, 2018
If you contract here then you should be ready for different treatment from the management positions. They do not care about the contractors that work for them.
Pros
Taking time off was easy
Cons
everything else

Driven company
Director (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIAugust 1, 2018
Continuous improvement efforts were over the top and adversely impacted morale.

Senior management was cool and aloof.

Regardless, the quality of co-workers was unmatched.
Pros
Access to an on-site gym
Cons
Over the top CI initiatives

CO-OP (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIJuly 30, 2018
I learn that you are one small pawn in a game of chess. You could make or break the game but even when your sacrificed you are treated like an asset to the game. Your value isn't noticed unless you have contributed to the company.

Great Company
Field Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIJuly 30, 2018
Upper management was sometimes very poor in the way they handle things. CEO was not afraid to fire them if, they messed up. The car and truck were keep up to date. If, we need anything they got it for us.

Nice place to work.
Operations group (Current Employee) –  United StatesJuly 29, 2018
The job is good, pace is good, and the benefits are pretty good as well. A typical day is going into the office for a meeting, then doing monthly or annual work on the pipeline. Often, work is just normal daily mechanical/electrical maintenance and repairs at well pads and/or compressor stations, then heading home sometime after 4:00 pm.
Pros
Company Truck
Cons
High cost of health care

Intern (Former Employee) –  Melvindale, MIJuly 26, 2018
A fun place to work with caring coworkers and bosses. Room to grow and family friendly. The time you're supposed to get off varies every day and depends on if you get stuck at a job or not.

Purchasing (Current Employee) –  MichiganJuly 20, 2018
Workplace over all is excellent. Advancement and Compensation mediocre. Management is poor. Management training and workshops should be required before individuals are advanced up.

Not bad. Good people.
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Newport, MIJuly 19, 2018
Aging plant that presents challenges. Work hard and do the right work. Safety is huge. People are mostly dedicated professionals. Current management seems ok. Not bad but not inspirational though. Problem is so many processes to use. Too many databases to use. Streamlining is not used. How can you truly improve which they claim is so important. Beats me. Comes down to your team. I recommend this place. Make good coin, good benefits, if you are self starter you can do well.
Pros
Safety, good pay, stable
Cons
Admin processes

Eh
Student Intern (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIJuly 18, 2018
Not much to say. Depending on what department you get placed in determines how you will feel about the place. Not much room for growth as a co op or a contracted employee - they are very limited on their job openings here. One opening will come up and hundreds will apply - leaving one person to get the job and the millions of other hopeful interns / contractors scrambling to get a full time career before they graduate. Other companies have more structure with their intern / co op programs - you are almost guaranteed a full time job if you preform well at other companies. Here is a lot of you have to be in the right place at the right time. DO NOT put all your eggs in this one basket with this company.

Productive Day
Meter Reader (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIJuly 13, 2018
A typical day as a meter reader was I did my routes and entered information into the CAP system. I learned how to complete routes. Management was o.k. . Hardest part was working in the snow.

Senior Infrastructure Analyst (Contractor) (Former Employee) –  Detroit, MIJuly 12, 2018
Unfortunately, DTE does not hire Contractors in IT. They also have a maximum 2yr policy for employment. I have seen many outstanding personal that had to leave due to contracts expiring.

Associate Analyst, Retailing (Former Employee) –  Ann Arbor, MIJune 13, 2018
Overall, its a good place to work because the benefits and salary are good. But the culture is still very competitive and stressful. You don't need to work overtime and its also very flexible. You need always hit the business goals.

exciting and fast paced work place
DTE Contractor/ Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Livonia, MIJune 12, 2018
I worked for DTE energy as a sales representative for the home protection plan. The typical day started off with a meeting about our sales goals etc... Then we would get our motivational speeches and bonuses discussed then hit the doors for about 10 hours to sale the protection plan to customers. We had incentives and bonuses to give us motivation to sell even more but we also had minimum quotas we had to meet which could sometimes be stressful because if you don't hit them then you don't get your entire salary.

Company that is lagging in technical innovations.
Supplier Quality Auditor (Current Employee) –  Newport, MIJune 11, 2018
The company is lagging in technical innovation because they still use uncontrolled Access databases for mission critical work. They will not facilitate discussions for working from home. The manager requires that all department employees attend the the morning meeting regardless of value.
Pros
Liberal time off work policy
Cons
Low pay in comparison to the industry

Principal Analyst - Master Coach (Current Employee) –  Detroit, MIJune 10, 2018
Can be very political, especially for advancement opportunities. It's more about who you know than rather what you know which can be typical at most corporate offices.
Pros
Excellent benefits
Cons
Advancement opportunities
