I have been working at Lexmark International full-time (More than 3 years)
I'm too new to know much about Lexmark. I came to Lexmark with their purchase of Kofax, and I came to Kofax with their purchase of Atalasoft. Lexmark seems to want to be a humane company that treats its employees well, and wants to actually live up to the motto "customers for life". Kofax has many, many capable, hardworking, professional employees who I like & respect on a personal level, and as a company they take seriously their job of making vital business software for large enterprises.
Lexmark is an aging printer manufacturer (at a time when it's pretty bad to be in the printer business) with two big enterprise software vendors bolted onto it: Perceptive Software and Kofax. Kofax hasn't changed noticeably from being purchased. For a software developer it's a "just OK" place to work - they are surprisingly bureaucratic, our CEO talks almost exclusively about numbers, and they operate very much on the idea that engineers should be fungible cogs. It's a small thing, but it bugs me: Kofax has major operations all over the world. Every quarterly meeting, some employees are called out for length of service, outstanding performance, etc.. Every single name that is 'foreign' to an English speaker, our CEO mangles. Every. Single. One. Except for a few developers who have made themselves nearly irreplaceable (for example, by writing 10,000 lines of arcane, uncommented C code), Kofax just wants you to show up, do what they've tasked you with, and release on schedule. Woe unto those who cause a release date to be missed. I helped an important customer solve a business-wide issue recently - I got kudos for the solution, but I also got a slap on the wrist: Product developers must not talk directly to customers. In the 4 years I've been with Kofax, I've never encountered or heard of anybody whose title involved usability or user interface design, or who betrayed any formal training in usability or human factors. The idea of designing software that can be used without substantial training is literally outside the Kofax model, and it shows. I've been told this is actually a feature in the enterprise software market.
Advice to Management
Since you depend on people in Germany, France, Russia, India and Vietnam to succeed as a company, make an effort to pronounce their names correctly. You'll need a major rework of your software process to incorporate usability, if you ever want to move down from enterprise toward the SMB market.
