    Pros

    Enjoyed the people I worked with. Challenging work at times and learned a lot along the way.

    Always worried about layoffs. People I knew kept getting impacted by the layoffs which was sad. There were so few people left. It is sad.

    Pros

    Eastman Kodak has great technology and there are great opportunities to learn new skills, as well as opportunities to relocate just about anywhere, as Kodak has world wide operations.

    Cons

    Kodak has been poorly managed since the 80's. Kodak is now a shadow of it's former self, and there is a great deal uncertainty about the future success of the newly restructured company and about the ability of the new management to successfully reinvent the company.
