    Pros

    Almost nothing! They are run by people who office in England.

    Cons

    Hard to move up, lack of management, no place for women in the work place. The salaries are low and the mind set is limited.

    Advice to Management

    Hire professionals- review your staff and make some changes by promoting from within.

    Pros

    Big Company with International market.

    Cons

    Management is blind to what it takes to run a $5 billion company. They were okay at $1.5 billion before the merger, but the game has changed. They don't know how to hold people accountable and think anyone can do any job, that is Ensco's culture. Ensco is a only financial play, and not a company trying to build a brand for the future. That is why they pay at the low end of the market and sweeten retirement . How many folks actually retire from a company after 25 years? Not many, so the cost is low.
