    I worked at EXCO Resources full-time

    Pros

    One of the best organizations I've ever worked for. I was treated like family yet I was taught many different aspects of the business to make me functionall in different departments within the organization

    Cons

    The company had to downsize due to changes in commodities. I have nothing bad to say. If I had my choice I would still be there.

    Pros

    A great company to work for with excellent benefits.

    Now that the company is struggling to survive due to oil and gas prices so low most employees are concerned about keeping their jobs. Opportunity for growth is limited.

    I worked at EXCO Resources (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were good. Office space was very nice and well decorated.

    Cons

    Too many in the fields. Money spent on unnecessary comfort items. Field employees are undervalued.

    Advice to Management

    The roots (field employees) can only take so many hits before the top tumbles. Definitely look at trimming the top of the dead weight.
