Tester (Former Employee) – Windsor, CO – November 17, 2017
The people were the most positive impact that i had from carestream. lots of different positions available if you wish to change in the future. Management was a little lacking as they seemed to have no backbone. the hardest part was probably the long shifts that rotate week to week.
Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Greece, NY – December 5, 2017
Typical work day included an 8 hour shift. I learned how to operate hospital equipment and take images. Equipment included X-ray machines and ultrasound machines. The workplace culture was very fun. The hardest part of the job was getting laid off any time they ran out of tasks or work. Everything about the job other than the shift being per diem was enjoyable.
Manager (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – September 2, 2017
I was an entry-level manager. I learned a lot about purchasing and bidding. Many of the people are former Kodakers whose skills have not kept up with the times, and they fight change. That made for a lot of stalling by insecure, unqualified people. That then meant that initiatives that should take months literally took years. Management at the top rarely understood what was going on in the trenches. Lots of pressure to move quickly without the staff or talents to do so. Very very negative work environment.
Computer Services Technician (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 20, 2017
Unhealthy workplace. Sold three times. Unqualified managers. No vision, no mission, no values, just words displayed on a poster board for visitors to see. Now Carestream Dental runs as an independent business and no longer part of Carestream Health.
Research Scientist (Former Employee) – Oakdale, MN – August 6, 2016
Management spent too much money trying to find a silver bullet. Too many trips to Asia and White City. Should have looked into acquiring the coater in the Imation buildings. Running Pilot Plant coating runs would have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – December 14, 2015
Enjoyed a great relationship with my specialists and colleagues.We worked well as a team and shared our best practices.Management was a help full and supportive.Issues were resolved, It was difficult with the go to market strategy of direct selling and channel partners also selling the same or similar products/solutions to the same customers.Training was excellent and I was able to learn a lot about Healthcare IT solutions
Productive and sometimes I feel like their my family.
Electronics Assembler (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – July 31, 2014
A typical day at work for me is fast paste from the the time I start to the time I finish.I learned alot about supply and demand. Inventory clerks always upset over something. Co-workers are jokers. The hardest part of my job is waiting on parts. The most enjoyable part is going home. That why I want a permament job.
Corporate Senior Recruiter, US&C (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – July 31, 2014
90% of my work day is awesome. 10% is the opposite. I have a great boss and team in recruiting. I love recruiting and most of the challenges that come with it. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the 10%.
Most people are great, cafeteria, free parking.
Compensation for work/life balance. Forced ranking of employees. Slow to change.
I learned to operate different types of machines, (Robots) (Film packaging machines). I worked with the best co-workers ever. the hardest part of the job was working in the dark, it was hard on the eyes going from a light room to a dark room and vise versa. The best part of my job was training new employees in my department.
Quality Service Assurance Representative (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 1, 2012
Helping professional clients to gain better service from employees is the most enjoyable part of working here. It is a great way to fulfill the need that a change for the better has occurred because of some thing you have done.
The position was rewarding. It took a long time to get the position started being then it was new to the company at the time, but once everything was worked out, working for CareStream--then PracticeWorks--was a good experience.
