    Pros

    Great Vision; while Xerox, Canon and others were looking to sell boxes, Lexmark was acquiring software companies and developing Solution Strategies. Good Benefits

    Cons

    On Boarding is non existent, so if you need training go get some experience and then join Lexmark.

    Advice to Management

    For some positions, management needs to trust and let employees work from home.

    Pros

    A lot to learn. Good People with some great experience.

    Cons

    People take too many vacations since there is no limitation for that. Contractors like me don't get to have that privilege.

    Advice to Management

    I have nothing much to say. Management as such is very good and liberal.

    There is a growing opportunity for this company in the area of software

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, just get in your 8 hours and get your job done.

    Cons

    If you're a contractor, you'll probably stay a contractor unless you write code

    Advice to Management

    Quit wasting money on trivial things like trying to be green and politically correct and give your employees some of the proceeds. Quit keeping contractors on for extended periods of time. This made me feel very unstable and unapprecitated.

    Pros

    Excellent team atmosphere. Individual contribution is highly valued.

    Pros

    Lexmark is full of extremely talented, motivated, approachable people that genuenly want the company to succeed.

    Cons

    Future uncertainty and a lack-of-appreciation for that hardware staff. When I left, Lexmark was going through a transition from a company that developed it's own hardware (printers) to a software focused company. It was unclear, although logical that Lexmark would stop developing hardware and start buying it. That left most of us hardware people wondering about our future. Consequently, many people departed. Also, when Lexmark started buying up software companies, management's actions made it very clear that they valued the software people more than the hardware people (even though the hardware business provided almost all revenue).

    Advice to Management

    Continue being honest and direct.

    Pros

    There trying to reinvent themselves into a software company from a long history of being a printer company and there taking there eye off the ball while spending a ton of money on a software division that isn't bringing in that much revenue.

    Cons

    Middle management are spreadsheet driven no forward thinking. There is also very limited upward mobility within Lexmark.

    Advice to Management

    Lexmark needs to look at bringing in new sales executive leadership.

  11. Company in transition, lots of good people, I hope they are turning in the right direction

    Pros

    I met many truly decent people that did their best to produce product and also help grow the employees. Management was excellent to me personally, and I expect for those who were creative and self stating. Gave me lots of trust and leeway to produce new ways to do research and I regret not being able to take advantage of the opportunity last presented to me. There is a niceness about Lexmark that is missing from many other companies.

    Cons

    The radical change in direction should be settling down but was an enormous depressing mess to watch wave after wave of people leave with no replacements and uncertainty about the future.

    Advice to Management

    trust your people
