    I have been working at Carestream Health full-time for more than 3 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

    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.
