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

    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!!

    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.
