    Pros

    Truly awesome technical people in Engineering and R&D, challenging work, employees are treated well.

    Cons

    The future for Lexmark seems uncertain. Lexmark didn't evolve quickly enough to diversify properly, leaving the company in a precarious position.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure there's anything to be done now about the future of the company, but continue to treat employees well, give them as much opportunity as possible, and they'll give their best in return until the risk of staying becomes too great.

    Many opportunities to work with the latest tech in software from embedded firmware to cloud developement. Laid back working environment with flexible time off rules.
    The Lexington area has a low cost of living. It is a great place to raise a family.

    Employee morale is low at the moment.

    Don't be afraid to try new ideas.

    I have been working at Lexmark International full-time

    Pros

    It is truly the people that make the company great. I have worked in many places and I have not seen so many people that are helpful, gracious, that want to do the best for the company and that believe in it. Flexible work schedule. Pay is decent. Benefits have been good.

    Cons

    True lack of direction from leadership. Over last five years it has been spiraling out of control and downward. Past leadership only valued their own paychecks.

    Pros

    Very people oriented, good benefits and company 401k match. New managemen has the right focus and company has a lot of potential to resume growth in the near future.

    Cons

    Established culture, a lot of old timers, company just went private and is going thru transition, cost cutting. Back end processes outsourced and that brings a lot of inefficiencies in business processeses and use of resources.

    Pros

    Great bunch co-workers in IT. IT is ever changing, so you are learning something new all the time.

    Cons

    This IT shop was also heavily outsourced. Contractors, in general, take less ownership of issues and don't always think 'long term solution'.

    Advice to Management

    Less outsourcing. Regular full-time employees feel ownership and work extra because they care.
