    Do not expected fair hiring practices

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Lexington, KY

    ProsThe pay and benefits are decent(if not a contractor). Work does not dominate life outside of work. Attitude of employees is not too formal.

    ConsHR and Upper Management do not give enough freedom in the hiring process and rely heavily on contract positions. Some contractors are kept in such a position for over a decade meanwhile new member are added to their teams at full-time positions gaining retirement and healthcare benefits, better pay, and room for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnd the abuse of contractors. Employing someone for a decade as a contractor and having them train people under them all the while paying them poorly with no benefits or room for advancement is just plain wrong.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lexmark minefield

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Lexington, KY

    ProsThe employee base is made up of genuinely nice people and the on-site cafeteria is good. Also, the Kentucky countryside is beautiful.

    ConsMy first day on the job, I was absolutely stunned with the overall state of the company -- clearly one of those: "What have I gotten myself into?" moments. Corporate strategy is grossly out of touch with the competition and current trends. Management is stacked and heavy-handed (micro-managing thrives); no employee morale; antiquated IT systems (Lotus Notes for e-mail? I thought that went out in the 90's.)

    Advice to Senior ManagementClear the decks! If Lexmark has even a chance to lift itself above the "small shop" status that it finds itself in, start from the top down.

    Lexmark should look at our government as a reflection on how they run the company. Alot of dead weight!

    Writer (Current Employee) Lexington, KY

    ProsI not alone. There are plenty of others in the company that are in the same boat.

    ConsContract employees are not given any incentives. The boat is sinking

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire from within. Give contract employees that have worked 5 plus years consideration when hiring. Remove management that aren't preforming. Look at employees performance when hiring and firing.
