Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Lexmark has some of the most competitive retirement benefits in the area. If you like Lexington, it is one of the biggest employers here.

Cons

Periodic layoffs over the last five years has created a tense atmosphere. Projects often seem more "me-too" than truly innovative. Company operates in a mature commodity market.

Advice to Management

Stop designing products by feature checklist. Instead focus on designing experiences for customers. It is the only way to truly differentiate in a commodity market like printing. Features are easy for competitors to copy quickly.

    "Toxic work culture"

    Pros

    The software shows a lot of promise due to the engineers' work in Germany. Headquarters as well as operations are based in the US, however I can only think that those in non-management positions are nice as well as sincere to interact with. On the other hand, because of this, you are able to empathize with colleagues about Brainware's poor work culture and incompetence of management.

    Cons

    Employees are underpaid - well below market level - and scared about losing their job. Turnover is unusually high, unless of course you are part of management team. Performance reviews or feedback from management do not exist. CEO was angry when an employee quit; management would rather fire than let you resign. Unhealthy and toxic work culture where hard work ethic is not valued. Politics is also huge in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat your employees well and with dignity. Everyone here feels like a slave and it is by no means a joke.
