    I have been working at Eastman Kodak full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I work with many good people - both technically competent and pleasant to work with. The inkjet technology is unique and should stand to be profitable.

    Cons

    As film declined Kodak continually shrank and struggled to adapt. It has been unable to make substantial profits and is threatened by heavy debt. Continuous layoffs destroy morale and devalue the company in the eyes of customers. The future is very uncertain.

    Pros

    Interesting technologies. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Average Benefits at best; salary stagnant; Business on the decline

    Advice to Management

    Change in leadership sorely needed. No direction or growth expected. Might be too late.

    I have been working at Eastman Kodak (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, environment, fun and challenging technology.

    Cons

    Company is struggling with declining revenues, industries, and stock price.

    Advice to Management

    Way too much bureaucracy and micro-managing. Let divisions run their own affairs. Cutting and layoffs are not a road to recovery and success.
