Great!

Management Consultant (Former Employee)
Rochester, NY

I worked at Eastman Kodak

ProsGood Life. Good Pay. Good People.

Tradition bound and conservative.

Well educated quality employees who are willing to help and lead.

Down but not out.

ConsHaving been a world leader and unchallanged monopoly for over half a century made us fearful to make major changes. We rode the slide from the pinnacle while grasping at mediocre fixes. It will be a long climb back up that will require Kodak to pursue and conquer daring and bold new businesses. But Kodak people possess the necessary knowledge.....just more courage is necessary to win it back.

Advice to Senior Managementtake some risks. push responsibility downward. lotta folks hungry for challange and opportunity. take a major pay cut. stop cutting headcount. can't shrink your way to major growth. invest in product people and processes.

Great Company, Great People, Committed to Success

Business Development Manager (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA

I have been working at Eastman Kodak

ProsI've been very impressed by the people I work with. As a new employee, it's really nice to see how the management is driving toward transforming Kodak and taking the initiative to get new business and remake itself. I'm also very impressed by the people I work with, and how committed to helping each other they are.

ConsLike any big company, it can take awhile to cut through the politics and get things done, but this is true of any company, and I have to say that while there have been some frustrations, I've never felt that it is because people want to be unhelpful, just that they are doing what they have always done.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work - I love working here!

I have loved my 21 years at Kodak! I've had some awesome opportunities!

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Rochester, NY

I have been working at Eastman Kodak

ProsI've been at Kodak for 21 years now and love the fact that I have had the chance to completely change assignments every 3-4 years...it's helped me to gain so much more experience and has given me a chance to grow in a way I could not in the same job year after year. I've learned a lot and that's what I love most. I also really like the people I work with....in this regard there have been a few bumps along the road, people I would not like to work with but that's more the exception than the rule. Regarding pay, I have been extremely happy with the level of pay....benefits are average I guess...nothing stellar there.

ConsUnfortunately the economic downturn is taking it's toll...so things are getting rough everywhere, including Kodak. The constant (huge) down-sizings are tainful. And of course massive down-sizings just turn everything upside down and add so much stress for everyone. Another down-side is that there is very little recognition...even the free recognitions of "nice job", "thanks", etc....which is discouraging during a time of no raises.

Advice to Senior ManagementTheir doing a good job quite honestly. Had it not been for this economic down turn we were positioned quite well. Now it's riding out this latest challenge. I would though emphasize how important it is to recognize individual employees, even if it cannot be monetary, throw a "great job" my way once in a while.
