    Pros

    Good salaries and benefits. Working on work life balance although not completely there for all.

    Cons

    They do not hold poor managers accountable for lack of management and employee development. HR backs theses managers even when wrong.

    Stable company. Good benefits. Very big, worldwide presence. People below the management ranks are generally very pleasant to work with.

    Too big for its own good. Not a good place for purely technical people. Short term thinking.

    Pros

    BASF is a great company to work for. The work family balance has improved significantly over the years. Also working with such exceptional colleagues, makes the experience even more enjoyable. I hope to have many more years contributing to the success of BASF.

    Cons

    A few departments (certainly not all) have a difficult 'team' environment. Making it a more competitive environment than things should be, esp. within a team. True entrepreneurial and collaborative behavior includes absolute teamwork, support, flexibility and work integrity, in my opinion. Statements like "that is not your job" or "make sure you cover yourself", shouldn't ever need to be heard.

    Advice to Management

    I read a great quote once... "People do not leave companies, they leave managers." Such a shame with a company as great as BASF.

    Pros

    It's a company that helps and motivate you to grow as a person and profecionally. You feel part of something big when you work for a company as BASF.

    Cons

    It is a company as any other, when they have to cut on budget they just cut it. If you are a part of that budget your gone.

    Advice to Management

    The company is as good as the employees working for it. People, fathers, mothers, families, not just numbers and graphics.
