Pros

Once had great people, great opportunities, strong consumer brand. Moving around was easy, lots of opportunity, both consumer and commercial. Now its all commercial.

Cons

30 years of downsizing, ineffectual leadership and vision. The brand was strong, but in transitioning to digital focus was on physical product and not enough on emotional side. No investment in brand led to irrelevance, and the brand standing for value or low price.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leaving the consumer brand to die on the vine was a big mistake.

    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.
