    Great employees, great benefits and new leadership are all reason why I am enjoying my time with Agfa.

    Cons

    Not a great work life balance although recently I feel that it is improving. Greater dedication to product road map would also be a welcomed change.

    Good experience

    Former Employee - Software Developer in Waterloo, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Agfa Healthcare as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I have only worked here as a co-op student, so my opinion should have little value to the general audience. Laid-back workplace and most employees are friendly and helpful. Albeit being a co-op student, I still feel that I am valued on the team.

    Cons

    It seems that the development teams are never up-to-speed with what the upper management wants (though I guess that would be true for most companies). The starting weeks are extremely slow and can be boring.

  7.

    Cons

    No room to grow, downsizing is present.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to get better at communicating future plans.

    I worked at Agfa Healthcare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Its products help people. Its developers care about the products and the end customer (the patient on the table)

    Cons

    Management has been up and down over the past couple of years. Power is held at head office so all decision making is there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the local management teams... they know what they are doing. They are the ones who make this company what it is today.

    Pros

    Intelligent, committed people working to better patient care.
    Every now and then you get to work in a dream team and it's almost magical.

    Cons

    The occasional lead who doesn't understand that praise should be public and criticisms should be private, and not the other way around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    align the different functional areas, and share information, goals and strategies.
