    Pros

    An amazing organization - with leadership in all the segments it operated in for over 100 years - a brand which was amongst top 10 on top of the mind recall till recently. Great connect with the consumers, excellent distribution network , & great product linage !

    Cons

    A company with great brand and product range and the great team - failed to take the onus of developing new business lines for their consumer business - when they had the right skill set with in the organization. The leadership failed in recognizing the fact that the change of business model world wide offered excellent opportunity for India to develop products & services which met the consumer expectations - which could be scaled world wide making India as most enviable business model in the world - which could be replicated in other countries .

    Advice to Management

    The organization still enjoys huge connect to consumers - which should not be lost . With all the businesses Kodak does , although it touches very many lives every day - the consumer business has been the very face of Kodak all the while. Kodak must sustain and build up on this to resurrect itself back to glory !

    Pros

    The people that remain at Kodak are of very high qualifications and work very well together. We continue to implement newer technology and processes.

    Cons

    Company strategies are still forming with the new management team that took over in 2014. Company is trying to act like a startup company, but current employees do not have that mindset.

    Advice to Management

    Must start hiring new people and use the great internal consulting power of the current employees to mentor them as they implement projects that can set new directions for the company.

    I worked at Eastman Kodak full-time

    Pros

    Eastman Kodak management has the best intentions but the quarter-to-quarter mentality has dragged down the ability of the team to truly take risks. Strong team atmosphere and sharing of information across the organization was always a strong suit.

    Cons

    The company has always been very manufacturing or engineering focused as opposed to customer focused. Market opportunity choices have been weak as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Look at what customers and buyers need now and in the future as opposed to what you can deliver.
