    I worked at Eastman Kodak full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great career. We had a fun team in Kodak Professional. We did some cool events for photographers and for the imaging industry.

    Cons

    A colleague used to describe our efforts as rearranging the deck chairs on an ocean liner. We're not going to get Kodak to change enough to adapt to the brave new digital world, which it invented, but we can do the best we can with the resources at hand.

    Advice to Management

    We tried, too late for that!

    I worked at Eastman Kodak full-time

    Pros

    Back in it's heyday it was an awesome place to work. Enjoyed the many years I worked there. Great people, great bosses who cared about their employees.

    Cons

    Ended up being an awful place to work. Money and benefits were cut. A very sad situation. So glad I was finally able to get out of there.

    Advice to Management

    It's too late to give advice. Poor management ran that company into the ground. Such a shame, I'm sure George Eastman is none too happy.
