    "Still has the Kodak mentality"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Carestream Health

      Pros

      Carestream is still a Rochester-based company. This may change in the very near future. Upper management has been trying to sell us off for almost 10 years. They are apparently close to doing so.

      Cons

      The culture is extremely conservative and this hurts the company in the marketplace. There are a few top management individuals who make extremely poor decisions. Cone beam CT, ultrasound, and now the nano project. What more do I have to say. I truly believe that these three failures will bring the company to its knees.

      Advice to Management

      Know when to cut a very ugly project. Flush ultrasound and the nano projects down the toilet. Take some of your old Kodak middle management and flush them along with it. It is time for a new generation to take the reins. The morale at the company is very poor. The physical environment at Ridge Road does not help any. The 80s decor is truly depressing and demoralizing.

      Disapproves of CEO

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

      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.

      I have been working at Carestream Health full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Good people work here, lots of growth opportunity for both products and people. The digital x-ray systems are top quality and easy to sell. There is real potential for career development if you can tough it out long enough to get in a position to make some changes. Honestly, it's easy to come here and make quick improvement since things are such a disaster.

      Cons

      LOTS of bureaucracy, antiquated processes, short sighted goals, bad decisions everywhere. No regard for anything except chasing revenue at the end of the month even if it means the company loses money on the deal. Too many people make a decision that is bad for the company or loses money, but it makes their report look good. Too few people doing too much work. Every department from top to bottom is understaffed, but...

      Advice to Management

      You can only squeeze the lemon so long before nothing is left. We need to try and balance the short term with the long term. Customer concerns should be addressed and not ignored. Too much busy work to generate and review reports but why waste your time if root cause doesn't get addressed? Throw out the Kodak organizational model and streamline things. The processes should be reviewed and simplified. Almost everything...

      I have been working at Carestream Health full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I waited until my one year anniversary to write this review because I felt it was fair to give the company that much time before I wrote something regarding my employment here. In short, Carestream is a great company. It has, like many other companies in Rochester, it's ups and downs, but this place provides valuable products that truly impacts patient outcomes in a extremely positive way. Pro's 1) The people here...

      Cons

      1) Exit is looming, so it is tough to gauge where our future is going. After 10 years this is going to happen, not knowing when or how sometimes makes the mood a little tense. 2) Upper management needs to inject passion, energy, and focus into this place more often. Sometimes momentum can be lacking, although we have numerous wins on a regular basis. 3) Change needs to come to Carestream, we need agents from outside...

      Advice to Management

      Drive us towards an exit as well as you can, bring on more resources, and evangelize more. We need leaders that can inject life and energy into all aspects of the business because many of us truly care about this company and live/breathe/eat the value it brings to the patients we serve. Rochester needs this place to be healthy, it is one of the best places it has, do what you can to stop and think about what we really...

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