I worked at Agfa Healthcare full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Very good work environment to enjoy. You also have the freedom to engage the company with your own ideas and strategies allowing your professional growth.

Cons

Very poor upper management, full of incompetent and unskilled people to these kind of positions. Most of the times making inappropriate and inconvenient decisions.
There are not competence plans for the people and career path, nor real merit reviews or recognition at all. Human resources does not exist.
The people which get promoted is because of friendship with the top manager, this is the criteria used nowdays at least in Latam region.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to think seriously about the actual top and regional managers who are not giving back any real value and growth to the company. All multinational companies around the world are conformed by people, and this aspect is highly neglected at this moment. Unfortunately things are getting worse everyday.

    Pros

    AGFA is a very organized company regarding tracking and managing resources in a top/down fashion. The amount of cutting and re-organizing they finally did post merger was just crazy. So many higher up management personnel were rotated in and out that you had to be sure they could figure out what to do with this business that they had acquired and could grow or get rid of.

    Cons

    The cutting of pay and benefits was hard. So many people left after the first round of cuts that there was massive talent loss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The people at the Westerly location are good people and they know what they are doing. Stop sending managers who don't know what they are doing.
