    Pros

    Dedicated employees, very rich benefits and dynamic new leadership will keep me here for the long haul! Agfa has great products and a solid long-term strategy.

    Cons

    Need more autonomy as a region. Trust the management team you have to make the right decisions.

    Advice to Management

    HQ - you have really great people in place, now let them do their job!

    I have been working at Agfa Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Sales organization experienced a major reorganization at the beginning of 2015. As is always the case with reorgs, it was scary and there were a few layoffs. 8 months later, numbers are up and those who survived seem as satisfied as they have ever been.

    Cons

    Lotus Notes...need I say more? But seriously, internal systems for information sharing, content management and quote generation can stand some improvement. The problem really seems to stem from decisions on USA based information systems being made in silos outside North America.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to the market and focus on core competencies. Agfa HealthCare is a global leader in Radiology & Cardiology imaging. Stay away from "me too" applications like RFID and HIE and stick to what you do best.

    Pros

    Management really seems to care about work-life balance, even with all the travel. Great opportunity to work with innovative technology.

    Cons

    Agfa is a very nice place to work. It is not easy to come up with a "con" for them. Any issues I've ever had were resolved very quickly. I have no complaints at this time.

    I worked at Agfa Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my time at Agfa HealthCare. The working hours were great. The pay was exceptional and so were the bonuses. Management was fair and everyone worked as a team. I miss the place as I was laid off in 2014.

    Cons

    As with all large corporations, decisions coming from non-US owners affect everyone in the company. Such was the case when I was caught in company-wide layoffs in 2014.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure how possible it is, but I'd say to fight for the positions we have stateside. I think management overall does a great job. At least the managers I had while at Agfa (I had 3 in the 7 years I was there) were fair and I did think they looked out for their people.

    I have been working at Agfa Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people, great customers, rewarding work, room for advancement, starting to focus in on IT, want to change, it will change soon, CEO is fantastic willing to change.

    Cons

    Old school thought, hard to change (150 year old manufacturing Co...), need more good people. Need middle management to change for the better, think outside the box- put a stop to the silo... collaborate is not a bad word

    Advice to Management

    Need to review your management staff for support agreements... and you are losing to many customers and talented staff do not stay because management does not listen. Do not discard ideas but only keep the good ones, listen to the boots on the ground. All managers should think on how to make Agfa better, become a master of your system of responsibilities, create what could be, with persistence will come success.

    Bureaucracy of a large corporation and not being even one that big. Changes are not embraced as fast as they need to be.
