    I have been working at Carestream Health full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    It is probably not too late to turn the company around

    Cons

    The company is experiencing strong headwinds. Three disastrous programs in XRS (Cone Beam CT, Ultrasound, and Nano) have decimated Carestream’s growth. Focus on these failed programs has taken resources away from working on our core competencies such as updating system software and launching new products the market so desperately needs. There are no new products in the pipeline!!!These problems along with the crippling...

    Advice to Management

    Replace the old Kodak management ASAP with professionals from the outside. This means everyone on the director level and above. Did you ever consider that selling HCIS will make it very difficult to sell x-ray products to our customers? We won’t have a SW package to bundle it with... Duh!!

    I worked at Carestream Health for more than 9 years

    Pros

    1) Pay is good comparable to other local companies. Benefits were good, but are being progressively stripped. 2) There is a small collective of high-performers that continue to do all that is necessary to drive the business and do the right thing. 3) (As a salaried employee) So as long as you are willing to regularly in excess of a 60 hour work week, you have the flexibility to construct/manage your work day.

    Cons

    1) Lack of transformative vision to save what's left of the business. 2) Change-driving projects, particularly in IT, rarely come to fruition due to 'Death by Analysis' by its principals. 3) Select R&D leadership is vacant and self-serving, with lack of innovative thought and positional insecurities that cause high-performers to exit the company. 4) There is a considerable gender and political pay gap, the...

    Advice to Management

    1) Focus on, and fully support, transformative growth and innovation efforts in the businesses that are not being stripped and salvaged. Demonstrate some bravery and trust in passionate and dedicated employees who want to make a difference in alignment with corporate objectives. 2) Don't replicate the Kodak model of riding out the film cash cow until there's nothing left and you're left with entering odd markets that...

    I have been working at Carestream Health full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Dedicated employees who care more than management. Pay is average, and benefits were once good.

    Cons

    Management was engaging Enron annual review process, firing the bottom 10 percent for the past 10 years, but now that a significant percent if the employees have quit, they ended that practice and have deeply cut the 401k program and earned vacation benifits for 2019 and beyond . The culture is bad, and has turned toxic. Fear is the culture here.

    Advice to Management

    Read up on employee satisfaction. When it is already significantly below average, don't think words will cover up massive compensation cuts for the employees who write the bill, and bring in the income. Unless there is another end plan (or end date) for this company.

    Lots of fun things to work on. Innovative products. Good, smart people. Good compensation.

    Cons

    Crippled company (for now). Kodak Health/Carestream has been a crippled company for almost a whole generation. Way back in the Kodak days, the company was not able to re-invest its profits back into the company, as the money was absorbed back into other failing Kodak businesses. Then the company is sold to a capital investment firm and the company once again cannot re-invest its profits back into the company due to...

    Advice to Management

    Admit that the company is crippled and realize that everyone is doing the best that they can. Understand how each individual is now doing the work of several absent people, but not as well as could be expected of a normally staffed, going concern, that reinvests its profits back into the company.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, if you appear to shine as I have, you get rewarded but you feel empty at the end of the day a d also become a target of paranoid and hostile individuals.

    Cons

    Each new day is more depressing than the next. Terrible ELT has been in tatters for a long time and always misses on products and focus. The good pay is not worth the pain of watching your life being wasted to meaningless contributions of a clueless company.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look in the mirror before you systematically destroy your employees for the dysfunctional company you've created.
