    No work life balance. Incompetent management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThose who still stayed on from Pride Legacy. Finally MS150 team.

    Conssalaried employee must work 50+ hours a week to meet the workload demands of management. Understaffed departments, discriminating managers, acquired Pride Employees treated as children

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees. Stop being so cliquish. Hire the right amount of staff for the workloads requested

    "Going Beyond" as the new motto does not apply to treatment of employees.

    (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsCompensation and benefits are competitive when compared with the rest of the offshore industry. For all of the negative issues in the company culture, there is a strong safety culture at Ensco.

    ConsMerger integration with Pride Int'l was managed very poorly, creating an antagonistic culture in Houston and on legacy Pride rigs. Even the legacy Ensco employees that moved to Houston from Dallas during the merger are leaving in high numbers. Senior executives are not approachable, and are known to punish those that are not "yes men".

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at your turnover rig by rig and department by department. VPs, Directors and Rig Managers need to be held accountable for the culture they are creating that leads to high turnover on their respective teams. If turnover is high in a specific area, there is a reason.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    1950's Company in 2013

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsAlmost nothing! They are run by people who office in England.

    ConsHard to move up, lack of management, no place for women in the work place. The salaries are low and the mind set is limited.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire professionals- review your staff and make some changes by promoting from within.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    White males only club

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsCompensation is decent otherwise most would leave. If you are a white male, your opportunities are not limited, for the rest of us, we are invisible so limited to mid-level.

    ConsVery old school. Complete "good ole boy" company. Women and minorities...forget it! You won't have a chance at moving up to a top level. They have one "token" female/minority on the board and known in management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis is not the 1950's where companies are run by white men. Learn what it means to diversify and perhaps you will have a better run company!

    Management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBig Company with International market.

    ConsManagement is blind to what it takes to run a $5 billion company. They were okay at $1.5 billion before the merger, but the game has changed. They don't know how to hold people accountable and think anyone can do any job, that is Ensco's culture. Ensco is a only financial play, and not a company trying to build a brand for the future. That is why they pay at the low end of the market and sweeten retirement . How many folks actually retire from a company after 25 years? Not many, so the cost is low.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Money is what keeps people but maybe not for long...

    IT Support (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    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 Senior ManagementIT 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.
