    I worked at Ensco (UK) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was a Pride International employee. Ensco acquired Pride. I stayed with the company for 1 year after the acquisition. I couldn't find any "Pros," so I left (like so many others). However, after I left, Ensco did investigate the Audit Director and made him leave the Company. This is something that Pride wouldn't do. So, I applaud Ensco's Audit Committee and Board of Directors for their ethics in this decision, even if it took a little longer than it should have.

    Cons

    Ensco is a "lean" company, meaning NO employee perks. For example, there was no flexibility in work hours, employees were expected to travel by the cheapest means possible (which meant one step above the pay-by-the-hour hotel), benefits were substandard, and bonuses (if you were high enough to get one) were way below the industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    It takes an investment to get good employees. When a company does not care about its employees, the good employees go elsewhere. Then, what are you left with?

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent pay. Company invested heavily in quality assets which benefit offshore employees. Decent management in the operations department.

    Cons

    Lack of clear company goals. Lack of communication from management to lower level employees. Lack of teamwork/ support from other departments. Cross-department knowledge lacking.

    Advice to Management

    start training employees in additional roles besides their own; when major projects require multi-department cooperation (which many do), there needs to be resources available to work on project.

    I worked at Ensco (UK) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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