A place to work

Un bon endroit pour débuter, pour apprendre, comme dans toutes les sociétés. Pas plus ni moins d'avantages ou d'inconvénients.De bonnes rencontres et des gens à éviter, comme partout.

Pros

Cantine, home office

If you are prepared to continually take on more....

....then this is the place for you.Virtually each and every year, more and more was removed. More people, more resources, benefits, all in the name of the shareholder. I get it, a company has to make money however all this one does is cut cut cut in order to squeeze some more pennies out on the backs of the few remaining people. If you are willing/able to always accept more work without receiving more compensation, good luck to you then. Management are very sympathetic to this plight however...you still have to get everything done.

Pros

Ability to work on your own, flexible hours

Cons

Long hours. Poor direction. Poor training.

McKesson 2.0

The company has lost its way. It was known historically as a company that took care of its customers and understood the competitive landscape. Now, the dollar drives all focus even if it scares away good employees and faithful customers. People who used to work for McKesson have infiltrated and taken over many upper and middle manager positions. It appears to be more like McKesson from the outside looking in than what Agfa used to be.

Pros

Hard to say

Cons

Too many to count

A Ă©viter

Le management est une véritable catastrophe dans ce groupe, la hiérarchie est floue et les contacts trop peu fiables on évolue au sein de ce groupe dans un milieu très instable.

Pros

Bonne rémunération

Cons

On est sans cesse sur des peaux de bananes

Run away dont. Waste ur time.

Very poor training to begin with, poor treatment of staff And no changes even when problems pointed out or when reported. No transparency and evaluations done incorrectly. No wage increases with cost of living. Problem with communication having head office in Belgium and no team work with them. People in lead position have no clue how to to run a proper team.

Pros

Can take time away if needed

Cons

No praise, not motivated, product goof ups, no room to move, like a caged bird.

Good people, poor management

Overall a good place to work. Interesting products, good people, lots of work. Dealing with upper management is difficult, needed changes to improve day-to-day operations are slow at best. Communication with other offices can be difficult but rewarding when it works.

Expected to fix anything with the company logo

Good place to work. The more you did the more that was expected from you. All service engineer jobs were eliminated and given to the dealer network.

Good place to work.

Business at Agfa Healthcare has have many challenges lately and like any other business that needs to stay competitive in the marketplace, some measures have to be taken by management and one of them is to streamline its workforce. Unfortunately it comes with a price as the valuable people resource with their knowledge, skills, experience and loyalty get lost. These assets are not easy to replace, as a consequence, those that remain will have to cope with more workload to meet the demands.

Healthcare

The company fairly compensates employees and offers competitive benefits. The company employs a lot of good and talented people, but goes through frequent organizational change.

Great Company.

AGFA is a great company to work for. If you want to work with leading technology within the healthcare sector, this is the place to be. The Waterloo office has a great culture and have been proud to be a part of the Waterloo office for 7 years.

Frustrating place of work

Over management but funny place of work. People like working together and share knowledge. But feedback is not that welcome. Flexibility in working hours make people more comfortable and committed to their work, which increase productivity.

Used to be decent

Good while it lasted. Challenging, interesting work, decent benefits but annual layoffs hang over everyone’s heads. The entire US executive team left in 2018. The new bunch in charge lacks professionalism and rules by fear and insults.

Pros

Good benefits on paper

Cons

Recent senior management changes causing turbulence

Recently, the North American corporation had a major change in senior management. This has caused major upheaval due to a large shift in focus. This has led to many verbal and email changes, but nothing codified.

Many work challenges

Pros: good pay and benefits Cons: So many issues with this company that the positives for pay and benefits not worth the stress and hours required per week to effectively do the job. In short, too much work and not enough SME’s for covering project implementations. Work life balance non existent requiring 60 plus hours every week to maintain required documentation. Too many RIFs during the short time I was there, 3 RIFs occurred in just over two years High-level of stress in the work environment
