    Pros

    Great benefits and opportunities. Newish CEO Paul Rooke is/was amazing.

    Cons

    Travel can be extensive. Putting manufacturing people into sales roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    DO not put plant managers into sales roles or sales management role, it is a recipe for disaster

    Overall review of Lexmark

    Former Employee - Administrator in Lexington-Fayette, KY
    Former Employee - Administrator in Lexington-Fayette, KY

    I worked at Lexmark International full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked at Lexmark for ten years in three different departments and each one gave me the support, encouragement, tools and friendships to succeed and be very productive.

    Cons

    Due to workforce reduction my job was eliminated. Although my review was glowing, there are others who had a different experience and may not have received the same support I did.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make yourself available to your team. They are the ones who make you succeed.

    A dying technology as a lot of businesses are moving towards paperless operations.

    I have been working at Lexmark International as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    You can work from home (but this is a little bit restricted)
    You are part of a huge international company

    Cons

    No job security as a contractor(alot of jobs end up in the Phillipines)
    Benefits are not great (no holidays or paid time off and heatlhcare is very expensive and you have little coverage)
    Management make a point to single out contractors
    As a contractor there is no room for growth
    Pay is not great ( and do not even ask for a raise/ it is not going to happen)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand your contractors do not work directly for you but they are still apart of your team. They feel very isolated and do not have a drive to work.
