International PACS leader, but lacks sense of accomplishment

Medical Imaging Software Developer (Current Employee) Waterloo, ON (Canada)

ProsI joined because Agfa seems to have a good international foothold with their PACS software. They let you delve right into the code, and although there are code reviews, there seems to be an inherent trust in the code quality of each other. I haven't seen the interior, but they have a new flashy R&D building in Waterloo Tech Park.

ConsTheir core technology was very outdated and often seemed like "spaghetti code", making it hard to incorporate new features quickly. Their build system needs some serious fixing for improved efficiency. Unfortunately, I never felt I could make a big contribution to the improvement of healthcare mainly because of these setbacks. Also, and take this with a grain of salt since I was just a coop, but there didn't seem to be much emphasis on employee engagement. The focus usually felt like it was on the shareholders first, and employees only after they were satisfied.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Was a great place to work with a lot of opportunities, but no longer

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

    I worked at Agfa Healthcare full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: Compensation was quite good in the past. But, has declined Cons: Moral is quite low due to a few key people… Advice to Senior Management: You actually need software developers to build software. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
