    Pros

    Decent life / work balance

    Cons

    Top performers do not seem to be paid in accordance with their skillset

    The only way a company will flourish is to recruit and retain top talent and weed out poor performers that do not carry their weight.

    Lots of opportunities to make a positive difference. Creativity encouraged & flexibility to do what is needed to achieve solutions.

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

    Pros

    There are many good, creative and intelligent people that are employed at Carestream. Despite the depletion of resources over the years after the company parted ways from Kodak, the employees that remain here (who went through the transition) are very committed to the cause.

    Cons

    Lack of resources and dispersing workload onto those who remain is the current climate here. This makes for long hours that are not only overlooked by management, but expected.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing what they can under the circumstances but additional encouragement to those who are holding up the foundation would be appreciated

    I have been working at Carestream Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing but. I could not ask to work for a better company. I have been here now for a year and they treat me VERY WELL. I LOVE the job I have as an FE and love my work schedule. The pay is on the upscale side of things ( could be a little better) but hey I still love what I do and the single most important thing about this company is how I am treated. I have worked at some other corporations (I won't name names here) but trust me they left a TON to be desired.

    Cons

    I honestly can not think of a single one.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I LOVE working for carestream and I am not saying this to kiss backsides. I don't/won't do that for any reason.
