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

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 worked at Lexmark International as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Thrown into the work environment and did more than just menial jobs

    Cons

    Not enough engineers, so always flying by the seat of your pants, but this might have been fixed as of late

    Advice to Management

    To listen to the managers right above the engineers because they know a lot more than you give them credit for.
