    Pros

    Excellent culture - very inclusive and flexible. Good benefits, unlimited vacation (subject to job responsibilities, of course). In Lexington, the pay is very good compared to the cost of living (not sure about other geographies).

    Cons

    Lexmark is shifting away from being a hardware company that happens to write some software to one that derives a lot of revenue from software. That changing focus can be difficult, particularly for people on the hardware side of the business. We've also acquired a number of software companies in short order, and we're still sorting out what products to promote and develop further. That creates lots of opportunities in software, but also lots of uncertainty. Raises have been low the last couple of years as we switch revenue streams and deal with the global economy.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate strategy as clearly as possible, especially when it changes. Make extra effort to publicly call out high performers, not just in salary discussions.

    Pros

    Love the environment here in Lenexa. Easy interaction with various teams here in KS and in various other office locations. My role deals with various geographies and all of the time zones in the US along with Europe. Everyone is very understanding of each other's time, meaning we have productive meetings! The Executive leadership has been a huge positive from my previous positions with other companies (including one big competitor here in KC). Flexible work arrangements, even though I have a large backlog on my desk, if I need to work from home I can. As far as vacation, I was actually scolded for working while I was on vacation! That was a welcome surprise.

    Cons

    Concerns over the new Enterprise software CEO has left a bad taste in many mouths around here. His track record is not the best or brightest when looking to previous positions and personnel who worked under him.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and don't let the newbies in your realm influence how you treat your existing people.
