    I have been working at ENSCO full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Solid mix of small and large company culture. Managers truly care about the employees and work to make sure the environment is enjoyable. Good technical challenges with Avionic Software Design and Hybrid Vehicle Design groups

    Cons

    Work product has typical 6 month turn which can make long term employment risky. Though I have been with ENSCO for greater than 8 years and have seen very little turnover

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on benefits package. The other companies tend to excel in the areas of healthcare and retirement packages

    I have been working at ENSCO full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Technically savvy staff (engineers).

    Cons

    Too many drama queens, too many that play the victim and too many non-conformist.

    Advice to Management

    "Employee management is one of the toughest challenges for business owners. By identifying employees who drain productivity and slow your business growth, you'll be able to remove them and bring in professionals who will help you meet your long-term goals." It does NOT matter how long they have been with you or considered "family." If they are not moving the company forward, time to let go.

    I worked at ENSCO full-time

    Pros

    The location is nice for most of the year.

    Cons

    The management really does not care for the employees at all. They are struggling to receive contracts which has made for an even more chaotic work environment. Mandatory overtime is generally always a thing and the salaries are a complete joke for a engineering firm.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing will change until the current management is gone.

    Small company has no 'bench' if it should loose a contract. It support is remote. No real business development effort.

    Work on business development. Try for other contracts at ksc and the air force. Improve it support by hiring a local engineer.
