    New technology needed to get back as innovative company, more training has to be given to develop further all the workforce.

    I worked at Eastman Kodak full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people, good salary and benefits. The people work really hard to make things happen despite any red tape. Overall during the years it has been a good company to work for but latterly not so great.

    Cons

    Poor long term strategy. Atmosphere was not very good after going in to Chapter 11 in 2012. Not sure how long the company will survive in to 2014 and beyond.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to the future and embrace technology

    I worked at Eastman Kodak full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Exceptionally talented co-workers - truly top performers cultivated through years of cutbacks.

    Cons

    The ever-present anxiety of working for a downsizing company takes its toll.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is little I can say to benefit the management team at this point, given the state of the company's shrinking core business.
