We take pride in our culture
At Kodak, we conduct ourselves according to six corporate values. We are proud to say that our resulting personal conduct allows for an environment that is free from inappropriate pressures and diversions. These values define who we are and how we act toward each other, our customers, our shareholders and the public.

Respect for the Dignity of the Individual
We cannot operate effectively unless each of us is able to treat everyone else with appropriate respect. This essential value is at the heart of our culture and will help us focus on many important issues like diversity of our workforce.

Uncompromising Integrity
In today's increasingly complex business and social world, integrity and honesty must be the hallmarks of any organization or person striving to consistently achieve and maintain the respect of our publics.

Trust
We must all be able to work in an environment in which we trust each other. We must depend upon and trust our colleagues to do their assigned tasks without the need to check and recheck their work. Likewise, each of us must handle our responsibilities so that our colleagues can trust we are doing our part.

Credibility
Each of us must earn the credibility with others inside and outside the company. Certainly, the company as a whole must strive for the highest credibility with all its external publics. We must commit to do what we say we will do and no later than we commit to do it.

Continuous Improvement and Personal Renewal
Results do count, and continuous improvement toward world-class levels is essential to achieve credibility with our publics. We must each continually improve ourselves and renew our skill sets. Training and education must be accepted as a common responsibility between employees and the company as a whole.

Recognition and Celebration
We will search out and welcome opportunities to openly celebrate the achievements of others and congratulate individuals, teams, employees, suppliers and customers for delivering results that contribute to Kodak success. Recognition and celebration will be an integral part of our everyday work activity.

We believe in a culture of appreciation, where genuinely saying "thank you" is part of our everyday lives. At Kodak, you matter.

We value our talent: Our competitive compensation and flexible health, work life and benefits programs meet the ever-changing and challenging needs of today's workforce.

At Kodak, you can expand your skills through opportunities to work across functions and geographies.

And Kodak puts professional growth in your own hands by providing the tools, resources and opportunities for you to own your career path.

Our ability to sustain a world-class culture begins and ends with an unwavering commitment to diversity. We are dedicated to attracting, developing and retaining highly skilled individuals with a variety of perspectives from all cultures and every segment of the population. We know that valuing different points of view while working together toward Kodak's common goals leads to growth and innovation.

Our global diversity & talent team aims to leverage diversity to achieve company business objectives and maximize the potential of individuals and the organization. Their mission is to integrate diversity and inclusion in all aspects of the business and talent life cycle in order to:

  • Fully engage the energies of Kodak's employees
  • Meet competitive challenges in the marketplace
  • Maximize shareholder value

The company's strategy is to engage employees, shareholders and other groups globally in Kodak's journey of inclusion, diversity and engagement in ways that reinforce a key Kodak value: respect for the dignity of the individual. By creating an environment in which such respect and trust thrive, employees can put their creativity to work developing new products and services, increasing productivity and customer delight.


Employees have the opportunity to form company-recognized networks around a certain topic or demographic. In the past, examples include networks for Native Americans, African Americans, women, employees with disabilities, veterans, working parents, and other affinity groups.


Kodak scores high on Corporate Equality Index

Once again, Kodak has scored 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign’s annual Corporate Equality Index (CEI). In total, 851 companies participated in this year’s survey. Kodak is one of 407 companies that earned a 100 percent ranking.

The recognition highlights a company’s commitment to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) workplace policies and practices, and Kodak has earned the top recognition in each of the 14 years the HRC has compiled the index.

Kodak’s Consumer and Film Division President and Chief Marketing Officer Steven Overman noted, “One of Kodak’s greatest strengths is the diverse range of people, perspectives and backgrounds that make up our global business. I’m proud that Kodak has once again scored a perfect rating on the HRC index.”

Corporate Equality Index

Companies with a 100 percent rating on the index have satisfied the criteria for that year and are recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality.” To meet the criteria, companies must have fully-inclusive equal employment opportunity policies, provide equal employment benefits, demonstrate organization LGBT competency, evidence their commitment to equality publicly, and exercise responsible citizenship.

Kodak continues to support a diverse and inclusive workplace for all employees. The company is proud of its high ranking in the annual index and looks forward to continued recognition as one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality.”

Americans with Disabilities

Respect for the dignity of the individual: This leads the list of Kodak's corporate values. Our employee population is rich in diversity, with employee network groups offering resources for assisting individual development and providing additional communication between individuals, community resources and company management. The Empower Network offers support and education for people with disabilities– both visible and not so visible.

    I worked at Eastman Kodak full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits , received raises accordingly. Good Company to work for back in the day and has really downsized.

    Cons

    Can't think of any other than early work hours, some employees were lazy and they usually had a higher paying status.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Eastman Kodak (Rochester, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Had two interviews. First one was a one-hour phone interview with four people. Basically, they describe their role and education first and ask some technical question related to my research work. Ask how do you see yourself in next 5-10. That is the only HR type question they asked me. All the other was completely technical.
    After one week they ask me to visit KODAK facility at Rochester, NY and do an onsite interview. During that, I had a give one-hour presentation related to my PhD thesis. It was an interactive presentation. After that had to about one-hour one-to-one interviews with several teams members. Not too bad some of them ask question-related to my presentation. Had lunch and dinner with the team. Everything was well organised and all the people I met over there very nice and give me a good tour around their facility at Rochester. After one week they offer me the position. During the whole process, the recruiter who contacted me, contact me time to time and gave updates and answer my questions. I feel it was a very nice interview process and I felt that they were interesed about my capability to do research and team work. Basically I didnt get any HR type question throughout the whole process.
