Management is not in control.
The pay and benefits are very good, however, there are few, if any, chances for advancement. It's not very clear what criteria are used when people are advanced. EXCO seems to react harshly to bad business decisions instead of planning for the future. They don't seem to understand how to successfully budget money.
Over a 14-month period more than 120 employees were laid-off with no notice whatsoever. There are two offices trying to manage this company, one in Pittsburgh and one in Dallas. Neither office knows what the other one is doing. This company doesn't seem very stable, and the chances are good they are looking for someone to buy all, or part, of their Appalachia assets in PA and WV. Working for them is like being on a ship with no captain in charge.
