    I have been working at BASF Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    BASF provides it's employees with benefits to a level I have not seen in other organizations. The 401k match is better than I have ever seen, vacation time is better than the national average, flexible work from home schedules are available in many positions and the general atmosphere among other employees is positive

    Cons

    It is a large company so it can take a long time to get some things done in the organization. Some positions require a lot of travel, so it can be difficult for people with families, but the job descriptions are usually accurate when it comes to specified travel.

    I have been working at BASF Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Supportive management is more than willing to invest in their employees development - Flexibility to move across the organization allows you to try many different industries all under one roof - Smart, motivated, and passionate coworkers who care about the quality of their work - Pay is above market - Great retirement and education benefits

    Cons

    - Somewhat competitive environment is not a good fit for everyone - Many internal processes and methods are not consistent across the organization - Because so many groups/people were brought in through acquisition it is difficult to have a consistent culture, moving across divisions can feel like joining an entirely new company

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to build a consistent culture across the entire organization without being overbearing.

    I worked at BASF Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and excellent benefits; BASF bought the company I worked for and immediately adjusted salaries upward to their payscale. BASF brought in an international culture which was fascinating and exciting!

    Cons

    All good things must come to an end... BASF relocated all administrative positions to NA Headquarters in NC. I was offered a relocation package but was unable to accept due to my family living in MO.
