    Pros

    Hmmm. No longer there? Not to sound like a disgruntle employee, but it is a sad company to work for. I worked for many years at a larger competitor and was laid off from that company. I understood why I was one of the chosen ones. I then had the unfortunate opportunity to go to Carestream. It was probably one of the worst experiences that I ever had with an employer. You can see why Kodak died in the Medical business and why no one wants to buy Carestream.

    Cons

    Stuck in the Kodak ways, and management will get rid of employees if they don't like one little thing. Not a fun or nice place to work. If you need a paycheck go ahead, BUT if you have a job don't jump into the fire

    Advice to Management

    Clean house from Kevin on down to first level

    Pros

    Good people, very talented. Great to learn from each other. Interesting projects. Good pay and benefits. Overall its been a positive experience.

    Cons

    Not enough transparency. Management doesn't involve employees enough in decision making process. Too much "process", sometimes hard to get things done. Schedule is overvalued above doing the right thing sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Trust employees more, listen more to them. Be more transparent in decision making process

    I liked working there. The people were friendly and helpful. Challenging work at all times. I found it to be a great place to work

    Cons

    Many former Kodak employees with the Kodak mindset. Carestream is a different company an should be runas so. There were alot of changes

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic goals and deadlines. Become more visible. Adopt and support an open door mentality. Get out of your offices and get to know your people.Trust and empower your people.

    The company takes employees for granted. They do next to nothing to show their employees appreciation. They are tight!

    Pros

    Good products! It's a job.

    Cons

    They cap sales professionals. Upper Management (CEO) feels no sales person should earn anywhere close to him! Very poor internal processes.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new CEO. Remove commission caps for sales people as you are de-motivating them! Open your eyes.
