My experience at Carestream Health was a pleasant experience and the workers are very nice.

Finished Item Planner Co-op (Former Employee)
Rochester, NY

I worked at Carestream Health full-time for less than a year

ProsThey have many helpful employees and the working environment is very comfortable. They have very strong views about quality training and lean concepts.

ConsThey do not take care of their employees sometimes because they feel it may cause other divisions to be jealous of one another. They do not provide much for relocation fees.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think they should take care of their employees better than the status quo.

ProsGood salary and benefits, good local management

Advice to Senior ManagementThe CEO is only as good as his upper management. They need overhauled. I don't think Kevin Hobert knows what really goes on.

Good place to work

Director (Current Employee)
Rochester, NY

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

ProsGood career growth -I have been given plenty of opportunities. The same has happened to others around me that deliver results
Good salary - The company definitely pays to get good people
Challenging work - My work has always been challenging
GREAT people - People I have worked with over the years have been outstanding

ConsRochester -the city is just tanking
Needs a face-lift: Although the Verona Street Building have been almost entirely upgraded (only one floor left) there is still a lot work to do at the Ridge Road manufacturing building. It really can use some make up

Advice to Senior ManagementConcentrate in the longer term not only on the next quarter.

Good benefits and quality employees

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Rochester, NY

I have been working at Carestream Health full-time

ProsCarestream offers good benefits compared to other companies in Rochester. They are also competitive with how much they pay for quality employees. The projects are challenging and are great for those that want to excel in the medical field.

ConsThe food in the cafe at the different locations is ok but does not compete with other companies in Rochester. The overall workspace is outdated and needs a to be fresh in order to look attractive to new employees.

Fantastic career opportunities for smart-driven employees

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Rochester, NY

I have been working at Carestream Health full-time for more than 3 years

ProsCarestream is behind several of the largest healthcare IT installations in the world that feature Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) for managing medical images and radiology information. The company’s IT architecture is in use at some of the most well-known HMOs, independent healthcare networks, and regional and national healthcare systems.

ConsI don't have a con. I posted a recommendation.

Advice to Senior ManagementDecide what will really move the needle for our products and customers, and act as a team. And don’t be afraid to disagree with our customers. They don’t always know what they need, and their requests might not be in our company’s (or product’s) best interest.

Great people to work with but upper management need a lot of help

Product Engineer (Former Employee)
Rochester, NY

I worked at Carestream Health full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat team at lower levels.. Hard workers are all that is left after years of eliminating lower 10% each year..

ConsUpper management is clueless. Operates on quarterly bonus, to quarterly bonus mentality.
Retired after 35 plus years with Kodak / Carestream... Would have been nice to at least get an email from upper management thanking for service... got nothing.

Advice to Senior ManagementCan't get your executive quarterly bonuses without someone in the lower ranks doing a good job for the company

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
