    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Carestream Health full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Occasional cake at the retirement of tenured associates

    Cons

    This company has gone downhill since the day the new owner has given the lead to KH who surrounded himself with spineless puppets. Sad to see that so many lives were destroyed over the past 10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Just be honest and tell the people left that there’s no future so they can plan ahead.

      Good people, good products, average pay

      I worked at Carestream Health full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      The place is a cesspool. Strong comradery amounts those who perform helps you get through the day.

      Cons

      I have never worked for a company with the level of incompetence at the senior management and executive level seen at Carestream. The Peter principle is very much alive and well.

      Advice to Management

      Stop the insanity and defying logic. Your company lacks real leaders. Instead you have people who will say or do anything to protect themselves and the incompetent yes men that report to them. Your culture does not recognize or support real leadership. Instead, it is threatened by it. Time for an overhaul.

      Pros

      Used to be a great company to work for!

      Cons

      They are changing the benefits! They took away the 1-2 weeks vacation from long standing and dedicated employees! And is taking away the 401(k) match.

      Advice to Management

      So, much for listening and caring what employees think. As Mr. Westgate stayed in a meeting to all the production people the other day.

      Pros

      The new CEO did away with the Bad HR practices of the past.

      Cons

      While we are being told that they want to change the culture, The new CEO and HR team are out there slashing benefits and cutting jobs. Now older employees who have 20 plus years of service have had their vacation time reduced from 5 or 6 weeks to only 4 weeks. Our 401K Match has gone form 7% down to 4% They are trying to reduce staff by about 10% The company is using a consultant company to make decisions...

      Advice to Management

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

      Pros

      I have been impressed with our new CEO Dave Westgate. He is willing to take risks and really seems serious about growing this company by challenging each of the business units to develop concrete plans.

      Cons

      TBD whether the micromanagement by senior leadership goes away now that Dave is in charge.

      Advice to Management

      Let go of previous ways of doing things.

      Can work from home - pay is very competitive, decent management support

      Clean house on some middle management that do not belong there and cause problems throughout the organization.
