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

    Pros

    1. Competitive pay and benefits 2. International travel 3. Tight-knit audit team 4. Audit Management is very supportive 5. Endless professional growth opportunities

    Cons

    Declining sales and growing reliance on fewer geographies, layoffs, debt, old IT infrastructure. It's not clear what the future holds for Carestream.

    Advice to Management

    1. Focus on growing the top line, 2. The CEO had it right when he spoke candidly with employees about his plans for the company. Revisit that communication strategy and stick with it.

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

    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.

    Advice to Management

    DO NOT SELL THE MOST PROFITABLE PART OF YOUR BUSINESS!!! While it really is a fantastic company, once the Dental business was split off from the Medical business.... it turned into the Titanic. I keep hearing about the rounds of layoffs that are occurring globally... tragic. However, as I said.... the management team is great and in the 16 years I worked for the company in all its various forms, I was ALWAYS proud...

    I worked at Carestream Health for more than 8 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...
