      Pros

      They had a fantastic benefits package and I could never complain about the income I was paid. The executive leadership team is very smart and know what they are doing. The upper level managers and directors are great. They care for their employees work/life balance and I valued my direct leader immensely.

      Cons

      Currently undergoing layoffs due to profitability and ensuring financial stability.

      Slow Growth and a Declining Market

      Jun 8, 2021 - Manager

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      * Some of the brightest people I've worked with * Good processes established

      Cons

      * Digital radiography business is slow growing in market, losing ground to competitors. They celebrate small victories, I never really saw big gains in this business. * The other core businesses (traditional radiography) has a sharply declining market, and Carestream is battling competitors for price, but they lose often since others are willing to take a loss to gain the business. This business has very little life left, I don't know how long they can maintain a full time workforce. *Newer CEO brings new ideas, but the other senior management are from the former Kodak culture (look what happened to that company). CEO isn't getting a straight answer from his advisors, I doubt they are anything but "yes" people. * Many of the smarter co-workers I had who still have 5+ more years in their career have left recently. Specifically the traditional business has management that is scared and thus scared many away. They have asked employees with "trust capital" to spare to essentially put their ethics and trust on the line to cover for huge gaps.

      Horrible place to work

      May 15, 2021 - Engineer 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Spot bonuses and that's about it.

      Cons

      Management, benefits, 401k match, health insurance, job function, work, people, you pretty much name it. This job constantly feels like I am trying to stay afloat in a boat that has gaping holes in it. Every single second is a fire drill and there is never room to actually do a job. The upper management has been lied to by middle management because they are trying to preserve their projects. None of the middle management reports the problems that the engineers bring up until $1 million is on the line and by then it's too late. There is a serious disconnect between R&D and manufacturing. It's like working with a separate company. Management doesn't seem to mind. They will take what they need from you and then can you at the first chance they can. They bait you in with a decent base salary and then never promote or give you an opportunity for growth. Bare minimum pay increases year after year, which don't even keep up with inflation. They're not committed to career development because there is no time to do trainings because of the fire drills. Make no mistake about it, this company is dying quickly. There is no commitment to R&D or any new products. Just trying to milk the current ones for all they're worth and then panic when the site/company dies. Unless you want to gain experience in archaic technologies that the company still can't seem to figure out, you best be looking somewhere else for employment.

      Pros

      * yearly raise/bonus *no customers to interact with *sometimes free food. *job is semi simple *some good people

      Cons

      * high injury rate *shamed in to not reporting work related injuries *poor management all around *constantly overworked *long shifts on concrete floors with repetitive movements. *sacrifice your body and free time for just enough to pay bills and have a roof over your head. *politics are often talked about in the work place * lots of white men, very few people of color. Some women at least. *open door policy and no retaliation mean nothing to them *workers comp is bs and they will deny you for any reason they can find *lay offs were of almost only folks on light duty/workers comp. *chemicals around plant and silver dust in the air likely giving employees cancer.

      Pros

      Perfect view of the mountains Friendly staff

      Cons

      Get ready for a list. The Carestream in windsor Colorado is awful, the bosses do not care about the people. People saw less than a 1% raise, and management said that was an amazing year. The equipment is older than most of our parents, and that includes its electrical equipment, so if you find yourself looking for a new position, you may find yourself trapped because the relevancy is nothing to most companies. The company does not have a future, management would rather complain and yell than hire staff/invest in its current employees. Absolutely unforgiveable the current state of the company is in
