    I worked at Carestream Health full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay rate is one of the best in the industry. Good benefits, health, 401k matching, great co workers. Fringe benefits were really good, like company car, etc.

    Cons

    Very unorganized. I felt middle management 'whitewashed' information so upper management had no chance to make correct decisions. Sales promised things that were not in the product to get contract then disappeared and expected implementation to make it work. Very heavy work load with little to no management backing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review sales contracts before signature. Rate middle management on project successes. Require certified project managers.

    I have been working at Carestream Health as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great team dynamic for group working with! Can't complain about my team working hard to get job done.

    Cons

    Internal politics suck. Second worst experience of my life. Had to learn hard way not to trust anyone in management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the buracracy! Too many people trying to protect the actions of a few who think they are above the rules set for everyone else. Not equitable and unfair polices and practices shield a select few and hurt everyone else.

    I have been working at Carestream Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many passionate and knowledgeable associates left. Good pay/benefits package.

    Cons

    Carestream is another perfect example of a failed transformation of business. This is like Kodak all over again. Most of the focus of the senior team still sits in the dying film business that exceeds their goals each year as they are able to negotiate low targets. This leads to great bonuses for the few dictators involved in this business. The CEO talks in his quarterly town-hall meetings mostly about the film business rather than the digital businesses which is a clear sign of his priorities. He clearly failed to implement any strategies that allow us to differentiate ourselves from the big players in the medical imaging industry which leads to poor results in the digital businesses. We also experience a mass-exodus of Senior Executives and other talent as they either get fired because they challenge the CEO or leave because they found a company with better opportunities and especially company values. The CEO sits most of his time in his corner office worrying about himself rather than leading from the front and through people. It is really sad to see this company going down as it would have had so much potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your million dollar bonuses and leave so we can get a new leadership team that salvages what's left.

    Pros

    Very relaxed office setting, quiet and not stressful. Decent benefits and a very flexible working schedule (management depending I suppose)

    Cons

    I'll say what every other review on here says, they're stuck in the ways of old Kodak and continue to promote professional managers in lieu of those best qualified for the job.

    Pros

    I had a FEW great teammates and project managers, we worked well together . IT department started in a great place but went downhill at a staggering rate!

    Cons

    Terrible management, only looking out for their friends. Preferred to micromanage and outsource rather than trust their teams and empower them to do the job.

    Pros

    above market pay, experience, good people,

    Cons

    worst work life balance I have ever seen, extremely under-staffed, seriously unfocused product R&D concerning Healthcare IT products, constant management changes, always adding more responsibility to each job role,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to play with the big boys, it is time to staff like the big boys, Onex needs to clean house in the C-suite!!

    Pros

    There really are not any pros, CHRO is weak. Has no common courtesy at returning emails, phone calls. It shows in org and turnover.

    Cons

    People feel threatened, CHRO proved that by overlooking qualified candidates to hire mediocre Talent Leader. Very weak leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at CHRO, need a change

    Pros

    - strong workforce and middle management which is the backbone of this company
    - reasonable salary & benefits
    - interesting industry

    Cons

    - new Chief HR Officer with no background in HR management , no HR skills and simply not professional. Got this job because she can follow CEO directions well and hammer her direct reports.
    - ELT that doesn't value nor appreciate the people that make them look good.
    - very negative culture, lots of hidden agenda's and politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - they are famous for not listening. Latest business ethics surveys is a great example of that.
