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

    Pros

    Great offshore start. Great teachers who help you learn and grow. Safety was always priority, no matter the size of the job. Was able to work longer than other companies during recent down turn.

    Cons

    Lower average pay for most drilling outfits. The older rigs were pretty rough around the edges. Lots of politics/favorites from new/old rigs and personnel preferences. inability to adjust day-rates to maintain work for the "little guy"

    Advice to Management

    Get us back to work

    Pros

    Good Pay and Benefits. World travel and exposure to foreign workers.

    Cons

    12+ hour days, bad work/life balance. Incompetent HR dept for Training/Taxes/Relocations. Some of the managers are "do as I say, not as I do" type.

    Pros

    Good starting company. Solid benefits and high matching 401k

    Cons

    Training programs start strong then meander. Personnel can get lost without the proper supervisor and no clear goals, leading to the feeling of being lost.

    Advice to Management

    Follow thru with training programs and offer strong options once nearing the end of their allotted time frames. Feels like throwing a dart at the board for next assignments.
