    there is an age gap in the company, on one side you get a more experienced mentor; on the other hand, you might get a sense of distance on rare occasions.

    I have been working at Eastman Kodak full-time

    Pros

    Good working environment with fantastic coworkers. You won't find a better group of people here, everyone works as a family. The CEO is very forward thinking and is taking the company in a good direction.

    Cons

    Wages remain stagnant and have for some time. Upgrading hardware and software is almost nonexistent, this company is still behind on revitalizing its capital. Upper management is disconnected with the workers, even if they try not to be.

    Advice to Management

    Connect and listen to workers more, maintenance is on the ground and knows what needs to be done to keep this company running smoothly. Do everything you can to raise wages to stay competitive.

    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.
