Company Culture

Exceptionally high safety standards. However, no employee development. You are employee E.... and you are on your own. You exist as a tool for their objectives. Once done with you, you can be easily discarded.

Support from management

Depends on who you know.

Teamwork

Actual story. If you give me verifiable previous data showing historically where a project will take two employees a week to do, I'm going to give you alone to the end of the day. If you get the job done today, I HAVE SUCCESSFULLY managed. If not, YOU have time management issues.

Freedom to work independently

Do what you are told. Don't ask questions. And hope nothing goes wrong where you will be held accountable for not asking in advance.

Internal Communication

They over-communicate non-essentials and under communicate Essential info. Policies and procedures out of date by years. DTE is all about getting it done now, faster, cheaper. Hit your kpi's, hit your kpi's, hit your kpi's no matter what!!! Until the rubber band stretches to the breaking point. Once it breaks, the entire culture is why didn't you do it by the book.

Gender Equality

Depends on sex. In department I worked in, not a single Caucasian male had been promoted to supervision in over 10 years.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I sat in meetings where staff was encouraged to help the "veterans" make career decisions (I.e. retire early, expedite disciplinary action, etc...)

Career Development

Unless a manager loves you, you are just a tool. As a VP once said, "We can run phone lines anywhere (to do the job) Implication was clear: Why do we need you?

Overall compensation for your work

For what they want: A generation ago, DTE had average pay and great benefits. A decade ago, they had average pay and average benefits. Now, they have below average pay and average benefits. They have very high turnover because the training is poor and there's no development/growth (professionally or financially).

Office / Work Environment

DTE realizes the value in providing a safe clean environment as a tool to improve performance, engagement, attendance, etc...

Environmental Friendliness

DTE realizes the value in providing a safe clean environment as a tool to improve performance, engagement, attendance, etc...

Work-Life Balance

On call 24.7.365. Employees encouraged to show up early off the clock, work through lunches and attend meetings in other cities unpaid, take work home over weekends, etc...

Company Image

They were once a great company to work for. Now the best and brightest are mostly going to jobs where employers see them as partners, not tools in the shed.

Job Security

Pro: Worked over a decade. Con: During entire time, never went more than month without fear of losing job.

Handicapped Accessibility

DTE realizes the value in providing a safe clean environment as a tool to improve performance, engagement, attendance, etc...

Workplace Safety

DTE realizes the value in providing a safe clean environment as a tool to improve performance, engagement, attendance, etc...

Challenging Work

Fun and challenging. DTE often gets in its own way though.

Inclusive / Diverse

Depends on race. In department I worked in, not a single Caucasian male had been promoted to supervision in over 10 years. Management suggested certain candidates be recommended in interview panels so our office could more reflect the color of corporate.

Suggestions for improvement

  • DTE needs to practice its core values, not memorize them.

What I like about the company

For a long time, DTE truly cared about its employees. Their benefit package was astounding.

What I dislike about the company

DTE has a pervasive attitude of, "It is what it is". Don't rock the boat and accept mediocrity. They are understaffed and overwhelmed. DTE never really makes things better. They get an issue under control by throwing bodies at it. Once controlled, the bodies are then moved to the next emergency, so on and so on. Of course the result is you end up having to come back to the same problems over and over because the duct tape isn't a true repair.
