Pros

-Excellent retirment benefits
-Great pay for individuals who were retained from the Pride merger

Cons

-Lack of communication from upper management is frustrating
-Company has doubled but is ran as a small company(no procedures, no structure and no direction)
-Decisions are made by too few and usually by those who are not knowledgable enough or insecure
-Disturbing when asked about community involvement that the CIO says "We feel Ensco does not owe them anything."
-Penny pinching is very evident with the unwillingness to hire more than absolute base essential headcount even when it is not enough

Advice to Management

IT upper management does not seem to have a thorough understanding of implementing an enterprise network due to lack of understanding or "we have always do it that way" frame of mind. Technological decisions made are counter intuitive of Microsoft or industry standards and is costing the company more than saving in productivity and resources.

    Pros

    Benefits and pay cannot be matched. 401k match is 5%, kicker for working overseas. Special access to airline clubs due to all the international travel. Fantastic amounts of training for all employees. Very strong safety record. Financials put them in a good position at this point in time to not only survive the reduced oil price, but take advantage of competitors.

    Cons

    Gone a lot for the rotational position. This is clearly explained during the hiring process, but expect to be gone 60-70% of the year. Lots of wear and tear on your body flying internationally every month for 15 hours, and added risk of taking helicopter flights overseas to get to rigs.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused. This is a great company to work for if you are prepared for the rigors of the rotation.
