    I worked at EXCO Resources full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked with some of the best people in the industry.

    Cons

    They moved our office to Dallas to consolidate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Houston is the best place to be if you are in the O&G business. Houston offers a much better spectrum of knowledgeable and potential quality employees.

    I have been working at EXCO Resources full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    People are nice but nosey. The work is not that stressful and hours are good.

    Cons

    To much management and not enough workers. The company has no CEO and the company is going through a split right now. Needs younger management with up to date ideas and changes. Some employees are just to settled and waiting to retire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Include employees as to what's going on.

    Would have been much better with a higher quality mid-level management group.

    I worked at EXCO Resources full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Doug Miller does seem to genuinely want his employees to have a great career experience. Benefits were good. Workload was consistent.

    Cons

    It grew too fast and many management and supervisor positions filled with less qualified people. The VP of Land allowed managers to get away with a lot of bad acting. Then in 2012 it shrunk too fast and so many good people had to leave - whether through the layoff or because they didn't trust EXCO to keep the doors open. The fact that no effort was made to keep good people was telling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually work on cultivating good employees instead of rewarding 'warm bodies'.

    Pros

    Most people are helpful and willing to teach and instruct.
    Yearly bonus and incentive bonus

    Cons

    Attitudes of some are horrible, feel they are being picked on and carry that onto others

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to keep all of the staff more in the loop of the security of their positions and of the company as a whole. Too secretive, which makes everyone on edge.
