    I worked at Kodak Alaris full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great team of designers and supportive Marketing Manager. Encouraged to design out of the box and create without limitations. Trainings were encouraged by the manager and paid for by the company. I experienced teamwork at all levels within my department and outside of my department.

    Cons

    Selling the company to partners in Dubai was most unfortunate.

    Pros

    A very casual and easy interview process. You can get in easily by inside reference.

    Cons

    90% senior-level employees, there is a big gap the employees are either senior or entry level. Senior level employees don't care about long term goals. No place for growth. No bounces, almost no benefits.

    Pros

    New office location ROCKS! Mgmt team made our new office a place you like to come to; they gave a lot of thought into the employees. CEO is a people person; very approachable and welcomes employee conversations.

    Cons

    Still need to work on getting rid of some employees that have the Kodak mentality - they feel entitled (and yes I came from Kodak - 38 years with the company)!

    I have been working at Kodak Alaris full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The business objective is heading towards the right direction. There has been a lot of re-structuring but it's for the better. It's still a young company but, with all the changes that are going on, I can see Alaris prospering. The work environment is good, but what I mostly enjoy here is the people that I work with.

    Cons

    The parking lot is very far but at least I'm getting my steps in. This shouldn't be a problem later in 2018 since the company is moving to the Rochester Tech Park

    Pros

    Most of my co-workers were great.

    Too many managers. Discrimination against the older work force. All people were not treated the same. Lesser paid workers were looked down on.

    I worked at Kodak Alaris full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent work for those that love product development. Hardware opportunities are there but limited. Software and Systems engineers most prevalent. There are still media developers and chemists as well. Its a very small and senior team. They also have IT related engineers managing a worldwide cloud system for service and print product ordering. Their getting better at marketing which is helping them a great deal....

    Cons

    They have been positioning themselves to grow but have not yet found the next big thing. Trying to get people to print their images has been challenging. Their retail business needs this to grow. They have been slowly pruning the company to reduce cost and align each group's spend and skills with company priorities. This has effected mostly older workers. This will eventually be good for new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on the next big thing! It hasn't been found yet.

    I have been working at Kodak Alaris full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -recognizing what needs to change and taking small steps to get there, empowering those who take the initiative and demonstrate the ability -stable financial position for the near term -very good people who care about their work

    Cons

    -sometimes spends with imprudence (Moments ads during Thanksgiving football) -consultants continually recommend poor, antiquated solutions with no consequences

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring consultants. They're a drain on your budget, time, and the morale of anyone actually trying to make a difference internally.
