    Pros

    Ensco holds its employees, vendors and customers to incredibly high standards and practices a true and comprehensive culture of safety.

    Lots of advancement opportunities but certainly not number 1 in pay scales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not all employees are created equal, there are a few that add extraordinary value and they should be treated as such.
