    I have been working at Carestream Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent colleagues with pride in work and care for customers, carried forward from Kodak mentality. Current packages ok but being squeezed

    Cons

    Lower management have their hands tied by those above. Upper management structure too heavy and not covering the backs of those actually doing the work that earns revenue. Need someone with a bit of backbone to tell those in the gods what is really happening.

    I have been working at Carestream Health full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Carestream has a good product range for the future and friendly helpful staff which I am sorry to say seems to be diminishing rapidly

    Cons

    Upper management more focused in removing any employee’s benefits to save money then selling products Never ending extra duties given and more paperwork No procedure in place to give direct feedback to upper management, only direct orders Has no respect for its employees, which will eventually reflect on its customers

    Great People! Freedom to achieve results. Teamwork. Salary is good. Bonuses are ok. HR team is great, really willing to help you.

    Too many reviews with Upper Management. Logistic team can be a pain. Can be slightly dysfunctional in some aspects. Not too bad anyway..

    I have been working at Carestream Health full-time for less 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 are dedicated, extremely nice, quirky, and fun. 2) Most complex and robust machines in the area, probably within a 300 mile radius. 3) Working for a mini GE-Healthcare in the ROC is something that is unique, and many people do not even know we are here. BTW, we beat GE all the time. 4) R&D is filled with magical unicorn beasts that build machines that are world class, and it is a fun group to be around. 5) Leading in either a #1 or #2 position with our products in every category. 6)Truly International business with global reach, well respected in over 170 countries. 7) This is true medical device work, not healthcare. Ortho, J&J, Coopervision, and Thermo do nothing as advanced as we do. In a class all of our own. 8) Quality driven culture that truly cares about what we put out into the field. That group is also a pleasure to be around.

    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 the Kodak culture to lead the way on this. 4) C Suite needs to read more of these reviews and decide if they want to stay or go, maybe going is for the better if they feel they have reached their potential here, many would agree that would be a great move.

    I have been working at Carestream Health full-time

    Pros

    Impressive product portfolio. Most workers are hard working and talented. Making Money

    Cons

    Lack of revenue growth. Upper management are to a person focused on their own personal reward with personalities that make them primarily suck-ups, back-stabbers and in one case a likely psychotic (any one who ever worked there knows who this is....). None of this is a secret (even to Onex owners) but the CEO has the right to all personnel decisions and as long as you meet your numbers you are okay

    Pros

    The best part of Carestream are the people you work with. Also good salary and average benefits.

    Cons

    Over the past year, the working environment has changed considerably. Upper management is willing to compromise their morals and integrity to meet business needs. The unfortunate part is that these objectives could be met quicker and with better quality without the negative environment. HR has become a puppet organization blindly following direction from the CEO. They were proud last year that they prematurely rolled out a consistent performance review process that was a disaster. The joke here is that each business still changed the process to meet their own objectives. After the review was complete, they changed the performance definitions of the lowest ratings to justify firing people. The performance review process itself is based on one-on-one competition -- the only way to get a higher rating is to throw someone above that spot under the bus. This is actually quite easy to achieve given that any manager can make up any issue for the performance correlation without any previous discussion with the employee or the employee's manager. Many organizations, especially the functional organizations, have built a rule by fear approach. People can be fired at any time - and are - without any reason. Legal - yes. Ethical -- no. Some groups have resorted to firing people to avoid the separation costs associated with a lay off. If you are considering a job here, keep your resume handy

    Pros

    Happy to be working in such an engaging research & development area. Co-workers are great and the local management does their best. Recently, the culture has improved.

    Cons

    Overall, Carestream as a company does not treat employees as well as other companies. Being owned by Onex Corporation means that the company can have a shorter term focus. That being said, they have found ways of being cost effective on things like health insurance while at the same time giving access to a limitless network of doctors. Upper management does not create an environment of trust & respect.

    Pros

    Good products! It's a job.

    Cons

    They cap sales professionals. Upper Management (CEO) feels no sales person should earn anywhere close to him! Very poor internal processes.
