    They say they are all about "safety" but when it comes to orders going out you are just a number, micro management, upper management uses foul language

    Pros

    Learn alot. They take it slow. Excellent training for those who are just starting in a production plant.

    Cons

    Labor intense plant where I work. The block is big and there are a lot of equipment to learn. You have a 3 yr training program but probably need 5 yrs to become comfortable in my block.

    I have been working at BASF Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Global growth and the ability to transfer globally, Process focused organization. Good opportunities for advancement at lower levels, but can hit the ceiling after a few years, after which it is difficult to advance.

    Cons

    Can be a great place to work if you have a good manager. Some managers only appear to be thinking about themselves and do not recognize the talents of the people reporting to them. Long hours are expected but not rewarded, Work Life balance is talked about but needs improvement.
    HR. is just there to pass out the 1-800 numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expect more or Demand more from the managers. The company has a lot of exceptional and talented people working for them. They are not being recognized or rewarded for their hard work.
