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 Management

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.

  2. "Good company. 1970's "information hoarding" mentality by mid-level managers from Dupont days."

    Pros

    Understanding managers. Support for work/home balance.

    Cons

    1970's "information hoarding" mentality by mid-level managers from Dupont days.

    Advice to Management

    Cadre of old Dupont mid-level managers have goal just to survive for the sake of their pension plan. They make commitments in a vacuum and look to pass work on to others as much as possible. Goals aren't embraced but approached as just a check-off item. They do not strive to excel and grow business through innovative thinking.
