I have been working at Eastman Kodak full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Company has great potential to break out and grow as smaller, leaner company as it emerges from Chapter 11. Great folks in the working ranks and good executive management in Dayton operation. Even if Kodak goes Chapter 7, the Dayton operation is most likely to survive through acquisition.

Cons

Still continues to be overburdened by culture of mega-corporation, especially in the the remaining executive management in Rochester, including the CEO. Failure and unwillingness to break with old paradigms is at the heart of the potential doom of this once-great company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go lean and mean. If an element of the business is not working, ditch it. If it's a needed element, partner with someone competent on the outside and run with them -- quit screwing around with the same boat anchors that have been dragging us down for years.

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

    Pros

    The Kodak values and the discipline to maintain the values, diversity, and equality made day to day life at Kodak a good experience.

    Cons

    Always in the shadow of being layed off for the sake of "lean" added years of stress to my life. I watched nearly all of my coworkers leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate. Even as I left, communication was weak and obfuscation the norm.

    I have been working at Eastman Kodak full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Was an excellent company to work for in the past- but no longer
    Some excellent people still around hanging on mainly because they love Rochester

    Cons

    A ghost of itself
    Management is out of touch with reality- has been for the past 10 years
    No accountability for bad decisions- ever

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a management team that cares about the company to try to revive it; Antonio's ego has killed the company.
