Manager (Former Employee)
Waltham, MA

I worked at Polaroid

ProsIt was a very progressive company with a very dedicated workforce before the bankruptcy. Things changed dramatically with new ownership.

ConsThe new ownership was not interested in running the company. Their concerns centered around squeezing as much money out of the company before they flipped it.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider the impact you are having on the employees and their families.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

OK place to work.

Shift Supervisor (Former Employee)

I worked at Polaroid

ProsPretty tough. A paycheck is about the best.

ConsSenior management is clueless about how to run a business let alone a technology business in an extremely fast paced environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementWake up and get some real views from people who are not yes people. There were a lot of really good dedicated hard working individuals who put all their effort and dedication into doing what they were supposed to do, but because of lack of direction and the ability of the company to shift gears with the real world, they lost an awful lot.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
