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 Management

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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Lots of freedom to decide for yourself what your focus should be. Frequent opportunities to change positions internally. Good pay grade and plenty of benefits.

    Cons

    Wants to be an agile IT company, but isn't. Disconnect between HR dept and the staff. Customer satisfaction could be much better.

    Advice to Management

    Focus and deliver! ;-)
