    I worked at Carestream Health for more than 9 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...

    I worked at Carestream Health full-time for more than 20 years

    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...
