I worked at Ensco full-timePros
The compensation and benefits is acceptable among other oil and gas drilling contractors in the world. It is well known in Ensco that on-shore expatriates, and off-shore crews are 'pampered'. If you are however on the local payroll, you may have to manage your expectations.Cons
Go Beyond is the main message of the Company's vision, and values, and it means employees are expected not to be mediocre folks. but to produce exceptional results.
The previous management style (prior to the change of CEO, Dan Raban) was out-of-date (micro-management), high turn-overs are evident across regions and certain departments, and there were no transparency for important information or discussion properly disseminated to the employees. It was tough to convince the management to promote or to retain certain employee despite hard evidence and facts of good performance being presented, and some individuals are victims of dismissal due to bias and redundancy.
Being an on-shore personnel (non-expatriate) working in Asia, there is no work-life balance and it includes the weekends.Advice to ManagementAdvice
In one of the five Ensco's core values - Success for employees, customers, and shareholders, you need to re-think what success have you provided to your employees.
1. The management needs to dedicate time to analyse and find out why are there high turnovers in the Company.
2. The management needs to adopt a coaching and mentoring approach, rather than micro-management or finger-pointing.
3. The management needs to 'listen' to the employees' voice by regularly holding town-hall sessions.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
