    Pros

    The benefits were good at Kodak including healthcare, paid vacation, ten paid holidays a year, 401K and pension.

    Cons

    Employees wasted way too much time on their cell phones. My boss would take up to 23 calls a day, walk out of the office to chat on the phone; then he would hire his WIFE and pay her $150 per HOUR because he could not finish his work. Is that a conflict of interest or what?

    Advice to Management

    STOP the unethical behavior at your company and maybe you can survive!

  2. It was a fun place to work but I don't think I could recommend it right now.

    Pros

    Enjoyed the people I worked with. Challenging work at times and learned a lot along the way.

    Cons

    Always worried about layoffs. People I knew kept getting impacted by the layoffs which was sad. There were so few people left. It is sad.

    Pros

    Eastman Kodak has great technology and there are great opportunities to learn new skills, as well as opportunities to relocate just about anywhere, as Kodak has world wide operations.

    Cons

    Kodak has been poorly managed since the 80's. Kodak is now a shadow of it's former self, and there is a great deal uncertainty about the future success of the newly restructured company and about the ability of the new management to successfully reinvent the company.

    Pros

    Mid-sized city with very good public schools in suburbs. Family oriented. Work-life balance,
    Was a very diverse company with great opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    Lot of wrong strategic decisions that burn up cash. Sold profitable businesses to support unrealistic new ventures.

    I worked at Eastman Kodak full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    At Kodak I had great co-workers and was paid well especially given the low cost of living in Rochester. I found it to have a supportive environment for new employees.

    Cons

    The company was in disarray and was laying off people right and left making the work environment very stressful. I also found living in Rochester to be challenging, preferring bigger, more economically stable cities.

    Advice to Management

    Make the work environment less dismal.
