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

    Pros

    Company is now more flexible, nimble and innovative. HR policies are cutting edge including flexible (not seniority based) vacation benefits. Divisions are given autonomy to pursue their best path forward. Many innovations and product ideas queued up for success as growth engines. Great place for people early in their careers to start since current employees are highly experienced / experts in their fields and therefore available to mentor new talent and to create promotional opportunities quickly.

    Cons

    Company needs to have a couple of wins from new product/technologies in pipeline to ensure path forward to growth.

    Advice to Management

    Leverage technology and innovation to create compelling products that lead to growth.

    I have been working at Eastman Kodak as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    One of best experience. Getting a chance to work with people having a diversed and an in-depth experience of their field. Average experience years of almost all here is 25+ years, which is quiet astonishing for me.
    Very flexible with your schedule.
    Friendly environment.
    Willing and always there to guide you.
    Very nice pay for the interns.

    Cons

    Not exactly a downside, but for the profile we are working, needs considerable amount of time to get trained and acquainted, so the internship period isn't that enough. Should be longer.

    Advice to Management

    As mentioned earlier, Not exactly a downside, but for the profile we are working, needs considerable amount of time to get trained and acquainted, so the internship period isn't that enough. Should be longer. About 6 months minimum. It needs a thorough understanding and needs time to build an understanding to interpret the forecast and make decisions accordingly, which is gained through time.
