    Pros

    The people that remain at Kodak are of very high qualifications and work very well together. We continue to implement newer technology and processes.

    Cons

    Company strategies are still forming with the new management team that took over in 2014. Company is trying to act like a startup company, but current employees do not have that mindset.

    Advice to Management

    Must start hiring new people and use the great internal consulting power of the current employees to mentor them as they implement projects that can set new directions for the company.

    I worked at Eastman Kodak full-time

    Pros

    Eastman Kodak management has the best intentions but the quarter-to-quarter mentality has dragged down the ability of the team to truly take risks. Strong team atmosphere and sharing of information across the organization was always a strong suit.

    Cons

    The company has always been very manufacturing or engineering focused as opposed to customer focused. Market opportunity choices have been weak as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Look at what customers and buyers need now and in the future as opposed to what you can deliver.

    Pros

    Had the opportunity to work with some great people. Learned a lot from co-workers and everyone worked as a team. Many opportunities to focus your career in areas that you enjoy and excel.

    Cons

    Upper management did a terrible job in directing this company. Too much greed at management level and focus on personal growth, not making decisions based on the best path for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Do what is right for the company in the long run. Do not sacrifice short term successes for long term health of the company.
