    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

    Good technology offerings; lower level management seeks good opportunities for employees; opportunity to work across a number of industries and geographies.

    Cons

    Takes too long for decisions to be made; direction gets set and then changed half-way through; the company comes up with great products but can't get them quickly enough to market

    Advice to Management

    Allow more decisions to be made at lower levels; avoid decisions that appear as "knee-jerk" reactions; make decisions quicker.
