    I worked at Eastman Kodak full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    co-workers, family like atmosphere
    great work life balance

    Cons

    dying company, benefits reflect smaller workforce meaning the cost is on the employee. No internal room for advancement, Even if a job opens up they prefer external rather than rewarding an internal employee with advancement. Very hierarchy mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Start appreciating your talent!!!

    Pros

    The last CEO has left the building

    Cons

    Iconic fall of a once great company due to the last 7 or 8 CEO's who were egotistical morons. They sold every business that made money and invested all in products that were a cash hole. They had the resources and time to make the digital conversion but leaders had no vision. Harvard business case reviews hold the Kodak decline as a classic in how to do everything wrong

    Advice to Management

    Hope you fella's enjoy the millions you got driving EK to the ground

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

    Pros

    Very few pros remain as a Kodak lifer. Benefits have dwindled. The most common statement around here is "be thankful you still have a job"! Close to retirement is the only pro left!

    Cons

    Not the great company it once was. I used to be proud to work here. Glory days of Cost of living raise, performance raise and bonus are gone. Stagnant pay for the past 10 years has put me below the national median pay scale.

    Advice to Management

    Hope you can get it right this time around!

    Colleagues and co-workers were great, Rochester headquarters city is a low-stress and affordable place to live.

    I worked at Eastman Kodak full-time

    Pros

    There are absolutely no Pro's unfortunately any more for this company. Once a Giant, now a huge drain on the community.

    Cons

    The worst management ever! High paid to sit back and wait for the company to fold. Seem to just be waiting for their severance checks! Who would keep the same Research Top Level Managers in place when they have not supported any research that would be able to move the company in a positive direction

    Advice to Management

    How you sleep at night for what you all got paid well for, but failed to do over and over is beyond me
