    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.

    I worked at Eastman Kodak full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - The employees at Kodak are friendly, hard working, and care about the future of the company.

    - The work is challenging and presents a growth opportunity for newer employees.

    - The company is forced to pay a premium for quality employees, so negotiate wisely.

    Cons

    - The "stable" businesses at Kodak are experiencing predictable annual declines, which the company offsets through cost cutting (i.e. layoffs) and selling off smaller parts of the business. This has been going on for decades and it will likely continue. As a result, the lack of job security may be too risky for some, but certainly not all perspective employees.

    - High pressure work environment (at times), very little international travel, wages are getting less competitive relative to risk, and the company's health insurance is not very competitive either.

    - No two processes are the same at Kodak and process improvement suggestions fall on deaf ears, or are met with excuses.

    - The average work week was between 60 and 80 hours.

    - Those who give everything are rewarded with more work.

    Advice to Management

    Increase senior management exposure to daily processes.
