    I worked at Agfa full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved my co-workers there. Neither before nor since have I experienced working with such kind, generous and helpful co-workers. I left AGFA approximately 10 years ago but that year wasn't available to select. Close knit groups who worked well together. I would go back there if a job opportunity presented itself.

    Cons

    No growth potential. Most people I knew had been there in the same position for 15+ years.

    Advice to Management

    I don't remember having any management issues. The managers were approachable and friendly. No micro-management issues as I recall.

    Pros

    Great company, good people, good compensation and fair treatment.

    Maybe a little too bureaucratic? Also, sometimes oriented to European customers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the US market.

    I worked at Agfa full-time

    Pros

    My job was eliminated because of a merger, this was a great job and a great company.

    Cons

    Some what of a disconnect between corporate Belgium and corporate USA. Corporate Belgian probably doesn't understand the needs of the employees in the US.

    Advice to Management

    If I were management from Belgium I would spend time in the trenches with the account managers to find out what the needs of the customers really are.
