Family orientated company but Mgmt seems to be shifting away from that philosophy.

    Pros

    Can-do attitude. Smart coworkers. Great variety of tasks. Very professional team. Good ultimate purpose.

    Cons

    Technology and techniques used are often outdated. Long overtime hours, unpaid, because projects are consistently under-budgeted. Employees are stressed out and tired, and it shows in their lack of keeping up-to-date with new tools and engineering fields, lack of initiative, and poor documentation. Hard work and performance are seldom rewarded, but seniority is. Little opportunities to grow/ expand career-wise. To get ahead, you have to show "visibility", nevermind the hard work you put in that was not noticed by upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Few demands fall on management, while much is expected from the engineers. Treating employees fairly and instead of only accounting for seniority, hierarchy and previous exposure to systems will go a long way. Choose you battles better and prioritize: Ensco is just surviving right now, it will need true long-term vision to reach the next level.

    Pros

    It is a true community of intelligent people who are working together to solve hard problems. They seem to care about their employees and remember when you did well and reward you with respect.

    Cons

    It is family owned, so the stock isn't traded. Therefore it can't be given as a reward--the employees can't share in the natural growth of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to offer a lower level of closely-held, non-traded stock.
