    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 worked at Eastman Kodak as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice people. Most of the employees have been working there for years so they know each other as very old friends. I was very welcomed. The pay is great.

    Cons

    The industry's downsizing all the time so you can see manufacturing and operations going down now and then.

    Advice to Management

    Doing great. But lack of communication among entry-level employees.

    Pros

    Exciting times to work for Kodak as it develops and redevelops itself, they do listen to ideas but sometimes they are a little bit to conservative.

    Company at this point was run by finance and IT.
