    I worked at BASF Corporation

    Pros

    Work and life balance. Hours are flexible and well balanced.

    Cons

    Hard to move up. Need better training program and better orientation for new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Need to listen more to the lab tech. They say if u see something say something but they don't listen when u say something.

    Pros

    They focus on work-life balance, have great compensation and benefits. Management focuses on developing the employee and fosters a team atmosphere.

    Cons

    This is a very large corporation so it seems like things are always being standardized and/or changed. Which isn't all bad, just annoying.


  3. Good place to work. Too much bs at times.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Great co-workers. I learn something new everyday. My supervisor is a very good and decent person as well.

    Cons

    Certain supervisors are given latitude to bully employees. Despite calling the Corporate Hot Line nothing is ever done to the bully. There is talk of changing the pay structure for Non-Exempt Salaried employees. The word is that it won't be to our advantage. Training sucks as well. Nothing really tangible pertaining to our job just a bunch of brainwashing. The good training is reserved for suck ups.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your plant operators better. We are there 24/7, nights, days, weekends and holidays. We're the ones exposed to dangerous chemicals on a daily basis making money for the company. Remember too, we know all the dirty little secrets that certain agencies would love to know. Wyandotte site is ripe for a union.
