As part of continuous improvement, failure is looked upon as an opportunity to iterate and find a better solution.

Ensign’s work culture may not be for everyone. Employees are empowered to work independently, make decisions, and effect change within the company, however, this comes with a certain level of responsibility. You should be a self-motivated person who does not need micromanagement to get your tasks done accurately and on time.
