    Pros

    Lots of engaging technical challenges, freedom to pick up projects or learning opportunities on top of existing role's responsibilities.

    Cons

    Coronavirus has harmed the already strained financial situation within company. While performance has been at or better than competitors YoY rate, it is unclear how company forges ahead given it's current financial position. Attempts at moving beyond printing is a good idea, but has (so far) failed to gain any traction. Personal growth is very limited as company is working in survival mode right now

    Short commute to office New CEO is a vast improvement.

    Cons

    1st, 2nd line managers usually suck. You might have a good manager only to be re-orged under a crappy manager. Reorganization happens at least once a year. Managers with antiquated software experience. I was actually surprised that Lexmark wasn’t using punch cards. As an employee you will end up doing others work constantly. No matter how much you do, the one item that management feels you don’t do will be used against you. Butt kissers get all the perks, whether they are productive team members or not. Many backstabbers, they will be nice to your face and throw you under the bus at first opportunity. Managers only listen to what they want to hear. Managers take credit for accolades, and assign blame for failures. Managers either are micro managers, clueless, or just collecting a paycheck(sometimes all three). Pay is far below industry standards. There are still managers/employees that believe if you are not in office you are not working despite work at home policy. Bureaucracy is the law of the land.
