    Pros

    Kodak too over a company called CREO which had a great Co culture. Once the take over happened the corp culture declined a bit but it was still a good place to work.

    Cons

    Formalization of cost spending was a pain in the butt, but it was understandable as Eastman Kodak was a much larger entity.

    Advice to Management

  2. Very hard to be promoted even with year of experience within the Company.

    Pros

    Interesting projects and large base of expertise from which to gather information

    Cons

    Large company in massive cost cutting mode. Decisions are entirely numbers focused and senior management does not seem to have faith in the individual business units' ability to run a sustainable business over the long term.

    Advice to Management

    Being entirely numbers focused will force many product lines to fail. This will inevitably result in outsourcing of products from competitors. This is not sustainable in the long term.

    Great career development opportunities at Kodak in return for paltry compensation.

    Pros

    Kodak offers great development opportunities. They have invested a lot of time and money into my career growth and development. On the job you get exposure to state of the art business practices and fundamentals that can be transferred to any organization. The people are also great at Kodak, there are very few tyrants and ego maniacs in management. The culture is very open and honest where micro-managing is non existent.

    Cons

    There is a trade off in working for Kodak, you get great training but poor compensation. Another downside is being a Canadian employee, it would appear they are trying to pull all the business back to Rochester or sending it to Asia. There won't be much of a Kodak presence in Vancouver in the years to come.

    Advice to Management

    You need to give back to the market that funds the majority of the cashflow sheet. Keep some jobs in North America!

    Pros

    Here in Vancouver we tarted out as Creo and were acquired in 2004. As time moves on the culture has changed a little but the senior management here has not. The culture is one of shared information, shared direction and shared success.

    Cons

    Rochester. Who knows what they do or what they are thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the people doing the real work and get rid of so many levels of management.
