I worked at ENSCO (VA) full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The people that work for the company, for the most part, are great. The salary was very competitive. I gained a lot of experience working for this company that has served me well in my other roles.

Cons

The only thing that I can think of is some of the management had a bad habit of micromanaging and not supporting their team members. When an employee does't feel supported, they tend to start looking for a place where they will be supported.

Advice to Management

Listen to your staff and support them.

    I worked at ENSCO (VA) full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Can-do attitude. Smart coworkers. Great variety of tasks. Very professional team. Good ultimate purpose.

    Cons

    Technology and techniques used are often outdated. Long overtime hours, unpaid, because projects are consistently under-budgeted. Employees are stressed out and tired, and it shows in their lack of keeping up-to-date with new tools and engineering fields, lack of initiative, and poor documentation. Hard work and performance are seldom rewarded, but seniority is. Little opportunities to grow/ expand career-wise. To get ahead, you have to show "visibility", nevermind the hard work you put in that was not noticed by upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Few demands fall on management, while much is expected from the engineers. Treating employees fairly and instead of only accounting for seniority, hierarchy and previous exposure to systems will go a long way. Choose you battles better and prioritize: Ensco is just surviving right now, it will need true long-term vision to reach the next level.
