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

    Pros

    Reasonable pay, flexible work schedule. Good co-workers. The exercise rooms and showers on site allow for workouts during lunch. Preferred parking is nice once you have enough years.

    Cons

    There is always a fear of being laid off as business conditions continue to deteriorate. Many of the offices and building are run down.

    Advice to Management

    Sell some of the businesses that are not strategic. Improve employee morale, perhaps consider hosting more events and parties for employees.
