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

    Pros

    AGFA Healthcare recognizes contributions made by the individual employees, and reward accordingly.
    There are opportunities to innovate and grow as a person or as a team. Schedules and dates are realistic and the tools are available to get the job done.

    Cons

    The leadership team varies in management style from team-to-team. The company is very process heavy, so you have to enjoy working in a more regulated environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change is good at all levels, but many changes in a short time at top level management can be very disruptive.

    Pros

    None. Please read my cons stated below.

    Cons

    The culture has culture has gone to crap. People just waiting for a severance package (Here in Waterloo On.) Team leads are un-skilled cut-outs shining on their managers a constantly screwing over their developers. No innovation. You really get the feeling the overlords in Belgium are itching to close the Waterloo site and it just kills moral. It has been said before....The lucky one got out with the golden severance packages. I ended up just quiting...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at all your dev team leads. There are some grave issues there.

    Pros

    People working there are great

    Cons

    Management is having trouble with keeping the applications easy to use and customer friendly . Also getting the product out on time and working as advertised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you cant retain your president of the NA organization is not bode well to customers or employees. Stop working the field and support people to death. Stop with the 10-14 hr. days every day of the week and then expect paper work done on employee time on weekends.

    Good experience

    Former Employee - Software Developer in Waterloo, ON (Canada)

    I worked at Agfa Healthcare as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I have only worked here as a co-op student, so my opinion should have little value to the general audience. Laid-back workplace and most employees are friendly and helpful. Albeit being a co-op student, I still feel that I am valued on the team.

    Cons

    It seems that the development teams are never up-to-speed with what the upper management wants (though I guess that would be true for most companies). The starting weeks are extremely slow and can be boring.
