  1.  

    ENSCO was a fast-paced, dynamic environment, dealing with military engineering.

    I worked at ENSCO, Inc. as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    It was a pleasure to immerse myself in an environment consisting of many hard-working, ambitious people. I would gladly work there again, given the opportunity. There was a great deli with fresh fish sandwiches in the building. The attire was business casual.

    Cons

    The contract was short and its tail end was on-call. It seemed there was upper management fighting in plain view of other employees and contractors.

  2.  

    Great Support and a family away from home

    I worked at ENSCO, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility and autonomy. You are given tasks and parameters to work within. So long as you complete the tasks timely and efficiently. They let you do your thing.

    Cons

    Changes happen too quickly. Most of that is due to customer requirements. Contracts are supposed to prevent that, but not at this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. Go where the money is.

    I worked at ENSCO, Inc.

    Pros

    It is a true community of intelligent people who are working together to solve hard problems. They seem to care about their employees and remember when you did well and reward you with respect.

    Cons

    It is family owned, so the stock isn't traded. Therefore it can't be given as a reward--the employees can't share in the natural growth of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to offer a lower level of closely-held, non-traded stock.

    Get the company moving again so we are not fearful for our jobs!

    I have been working at ENSCO, Inc. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ensco is a sound drilling contractor to work for with contracted and stable work for many years to come. There is also plenty of opportunity to grow. Ensco provides great benefits for both insurance and retirement.

    Cons

    Compared to other Drilling contractors I would say ensco is not the highest paid and still has some of the old jack up mentality and applies it to deepwater rigs.

    I have been working at ENSCO, Inc. full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Above average benefits. Office culture generally congenial and easy going. Most of the people are good to work with. Dress code is business casual to casual. Management is generally very concerned about employee satisfaction.

    Cons

    Lacks technical capabilities and resources to be able to meet aggressive business acquisition goals. Springfield office is owned by company but generally run down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a better understanding of the technical limitations of your employees and resources/facilities. Spend more IR&D funds to improve capabilities. Close down the Springfield office and move into a more price competitive modern facility.

    A very good place to work, ENSCO treats their employees very well and provides a challenging and rewarding environment.

    I have been working at ENSCO, Inc.

    Pros

    ENSCO gives you the opportunity to grow within your field, is supportive of your desire to obtain certifications and advanced degrees. The environment is very collaborative and the work is interesting - many people are "lifers" and retire with a healthy 401(k) portfolio.

    Cons

    The communication from Senior Management can be improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with the employees in more detail and on a more regular basis so we know and understand why certain changes are being made and what affect they may have on us.
