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

    Pros

    Kodak really values the employees, HR is top notch, pay and benefits are pretty good. The work is challenging, and your fellow workers are great teammates.

    Cons

    The company has been in a slow 30 year decline, so growth and advancement opportunities are limited. Morale suffers as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Just break up the company into individual business units and let them thrive with new ownership.
