    I worked at Agfa Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    All ASEAN employees are nice and friendly with no ulterior motives. Very helpful.

    Cons

    There are 2 foreigners from India running the business as if it is India. Very poor people skills, fickle mindedness nor understand ASEAN business culture / enviroment. They do not check their emails nor reply messages. They become hyper sensitive when you show initiative. It shows how insecure they are. Both are receiving strong support from HQ despite their disastrous ways of operating business in ASEAN ! Always pointing fingers at others and not themselves !

    Advice to Management

    Be more inclusive and engaging ! This is not India. Treat people nicely. There is employment act in this country.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    We have amazing co-workers and products.

    Cons

    Another year of record profits on the backs of employees. No cost of living or increases for +8 yrs!! We are being set up with sob stories why not to expect anything this year either. We have listened to promise after promise. Some of us are now too old to start over elsewhere. If Agfa was really smart they would give real incentives and productivity and moral would come back. Who wants to keep working long hours for free (and against the govts laws) for empty promises and constant kick in the backside. If you want quality you should expect to pay for it.

    Advice to Management

    Check out what other companies are offering for perks and moral in the Waterloo area. You'll be surprised!! EI project is such a joke. Time to shelve it before it downs the company.
