    I worked at ENSCO full-time

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    ENSCO is trying to expand too quickly without having the correct staff in place; the feeling is that they're hiring anybody who applies. Management is underqualified and untrained. Management takes too long to handle HR complaints in regards to harassment and mistreatment of subordinate employees. There are limited positions open and room for growth or new opportunities is limited.

    Dear ENSCO former employee,

    I am concerned about your comments. We have multiple locations and operate in multiple markets, so I don’t know your specific situation. I can tell you, however, we... More

    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 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.

    Smart people and flexible work hours, including work at home. Interesting working on the space program.

    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.
