    Pros

    The culture at Lexmark is not cutthroat and allows for a reasonable work-life balance. I enjoyed most of the people I worked with. Good base salary and benefits.

    Cons

    There was little opportunity to excel because of big quotas and very limited customer base. Lexmark products are above average but service issues (getting better) and lack of name recognition make selling difficult. I feel like they exploited their best customers because they had to work so hard to find new ones. It's hard being a distant 2nd to HP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to clean house from the top down. Company will never change without new blood (i.e. IBM - Lew Gerstner and HP - Mark Hurd). Better marketing, better service and make it easier to do business with Lexmark.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire 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.
