    I worked at Eastman Kodak full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Exceptionally talented co-workers - truly top performers cultivated through years of cutbacks.

    Cons

    The ever-present anxiety of working for a downsizing company takes its toll.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is little I can say to benefit the management team at this point, given the state of the company's shrinking core business.

    I have been working at Eastman Kodak

    Pros

    Work from home
    Fairly flexible
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Possibly the oldest systems I have ever worked on in my life. I think actually many of the systems were written before the year of my birth (70s). The leadership lies to you and customer. Prior to Kodak announcing the bankruptcy, I had arranged a conference call with a large end user customer along with top leadership to assure them we were NOT filing for bankruptcy. Less than one week later, Chapter 11 was filed. I understood that this wasn't something that should have been shared prematurely, but then why get on the call?!?! Postpone it- push it off, don't bold faced lie to them. The top management are all in bed with each other (literally). The tenure at the company is embarrassing and there are dozens of people retired on the job. So when someone without retirement countdown clock joins the company, they are met with constant resistance to change ANYTHING. Imagine that- the employees are the worst enemy for company success. Stay away from this place; it is a Cancer.

    Pros

    Work variety (different types of products) and a corporate commitment to significantly improve the overall use experience through extensive user testing, observation and prototyping.

    Cons

    The decline in personal photographic products market (that are not smart phones) resulted in a significant downsizing of our internal department. The company shifted from and internal business structure to a private branding model..

    Pros

    Your coworkers were the best, until they started all yearly downsizing's in the early 2000's. Early on there was a lot of places to move and grow your career.

    Cons

    After the yearly downsizing's started then it was always looking over your shoulder and wondering if you were going to be the next one to be "impacted". A sense of relief and you could work for another year and then be told the financials were bad and then they would have to cut some more jobs. It just got so disheartening. And then after they had layed off someone you had to take on the extra work with no help. And all the goodbye lunches were so sad.
