    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.

    Pros

    Focus on operational excellence and safety. Strong emphasis on core values, opportunity to make a lasting impact.

    Cons

    Acquisition of Pride International was three years ago and the cultural integration has yet to be fully realized. New CEO from SLB is a great addition. Future is bright!

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more and to all levels as frequently as possible. Share power and authority to develop talent.

    Pros

    Ensco is a sound drilling contractor to work for with contracted and stable work for many years to come. There is also plenty of opportunity to grow. Ensco provides great benefits for both insurance and retirement.

    Cons

    Compared to other Drilling contractors I would say ensco is not the highest paid and still has some of the old jack up mentality and applies it to deepwater rigs.

    Poor leadership and Discriminatory culture
