What is the status of the Eastern Orthodox Churches?

From what I understand the Eastern Orthodox Churches are not in full communion with the Holy See. What does this mean exactly? Are they schismatic? Thanks for your help!!

The Eastern Orthodox Churches are indeed in schism and have been so for centuries.
