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

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

    EXCO is a very active exploration/ exploitation company with pleanty of funding to support their activity.

    Cons

    EXCO middle management is extremely weak. I often felt that I work on a desert island.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    EXCO executive management would be served well by creating a communication system that would allow field level/lower management people to be heard. Your middle/upper management often display fear and refuse to convey information that is beneficial to your company up the ladder because it does not mirror you edicts.

    Pros

    Great staff, friendly, family like which is rare for a mid-size company. Amazing benefits especially the 401K retirement. EXCO doesn't like to fire anyone but instead moves less than effective employees around to try and find a place for them.

    Cons

    Part of the Pro - some less than effective employees sometimes need to be let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your people a little more. We're in this with you, good and bad times.
