I worked at Lexmark International full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Job wasn't too bad. Worked with fun people.

Cons

6 years and never received a raise despite being a top performer. When I threatened to leave my boss's boss came to town and asked me to stay. Couldn't offer me more money just asked me to stay.

Advice to Management

I understand the company has had hard times. There was a hiring freeze in effect pretty much the whole time I was there but find someway to reward the exceptional employees.

    Pros

    Overall everyting is great! Pay, Culture and Benefits. Provides a lot of career development opportunities to grow professionally

    Cons

    Company has been going through downsizing for many years. Anyone looking to get a job with this company should be aware if your looking for stability this is not the best time to get on board. They have reduced their workforce so much but then turn around and hire through temp agencies. Many people complain about never feeling like an equal employee when hired in through Adecco or another contracting company. Like they hold the carrot of being hired and never do. I on the other hand was hired in years ago as a Lexmark employee and never felt as if I was not a true employee.

    Advice to Management

    When you are communicating your plans to lay off hundreds of people in a meeting, it's probably not the best time to say oh yeah by the way we just hired "so and so" and they come to Lexmark from from XX company. Maybe look from within the company at employees who are going to be Laid off or commuicate the layoff and the new hires at a different time.

    I have been working at Lexmark International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flex time
    Relaxed environment
    Low Stress
    Good work life balance

    Cons

    Contractors treated like lepers by upper management
    Management ignore the real issues
    Focus on fast deliverables over quality
    Unable to update with the times
    Claim to be a scrum environment, but it is stall a waterfall environment with parts of scrum added.
    Promotions based on personal preference vs hard work

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved with the projects and treat people like they are humans
