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

Pros

The people left here are all cream-of-the-crop. Everybody wants to see this bankruptcy through and see the Company succeed. There are creative and innovative ideas always coming out of everyone. If you need any lessons on 'how to do more with less' this is the place. The average pay is still one of the best in Rochester, NY. The work being done is leading edge.

Cons

Dealing with a Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Not know what the immediate future holds (six months, twelve months)? Loss of jobs at an alarming rate. Reduction in benefits. The little amenities or perks like on site banking, Kodak stores, transportation services, extracurricular activities, are virtually gone. Going on 2 plus years with no salary increase or company bonus (no matter how good/bad your particular group is doing). The constant negative press and 'doom and gloom' of the local news in print, radio and television. The average age of the workforce is late forty's ... hard to cultivate new fresh ideas or pump new blood into the local workforce.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the decisions you need to make and get the company in the right direction. Invest in money-making opportunities. Remember to keep your current employees, the one's who have stuck with you through the worst years in company history in mind. People are your most valuable asset - show them some appreciation.

    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.

    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.
