    Too many managers doing naff all except collect huge salary.

    Advice to Management

    Have you managed to spend all the Harrow site sale money yet ? Surprised you didn't have to hand it over to the pension fund straight away before greedy bosses could have a little dabble.

    I worked at Kodak Alaris part-time

    Pros

    It was a very good experience, team was friendly and the work was not too bad either. The pay was very generous as well.

    Cons

    Problem would be you are not to leave the complex on your breaks during the shift. The shifts themselves were 12 hours which are long.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you keep on doing, it works very well. It was fairly easy to apply and get the job which makes it less stressful for potential applicants. The training was not too difficult either.

    Great people, at all levels on local site. Willing to try and develop / modify all processes to increase returns for the company.

    Site now shutdown. No more manufacturing in the UK

    Advice to Management

    Missed the opportunities many years ago. To have lead the world in digital photography, incorporating it into what are now known as smart phones.

    I have been working at Kodak Alaris full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Passionate people driven to succeed. Good technology, new owner seems supportive. New leadership team appears to be a real step up.

    Cons

    Baggage from legacy culture of Eastman Kodak not yet gone. Rochester isn't the best place to attract new talent. Need to continue to weed out the non contributors

    Advice to Management

    Move on opportunities sooner rather than later

    "A Solid Business Going Through A Significant Transformation"

    I have been working at Kodak Alaris full-time

    Pros

    Passionate people, strength of brand and business relationships. Staggering number of daily consumer interactions with print kiosks (over 500,000 every day) and business is a market leader in scanners (who said the paperless office was here!). Genuine opportunity to reinvent the company.

    Cons

    Infrastructure in need of an overhaul (IT, some buildings). Going through a transformation programme means that many fundamentals need to be fixed. Business does not own the brand so confusion between old Eastman Kodak business and Kodak Alaris.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focussed on the long term transformation efforts. There is a real opportunity to re-write the oft used case studies.
