Very process and procedure oriented, sometimes introducing innovative ideas can be frustrating. Can be slow moving, market follower. People tend to stay a long time sometimes limiting career advancment.

    Current Employee - Security Technology Analyst in Florham Park, NJ

    I have been working at BASF Corporation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They gave me a job after I was laid off from my last job in April. My coworkers are helpful and the pay is decent. I worked at my previous company for 25 years so having friendly coworkers helps make the transition easier.

    Cons

    Company is huge and management doesn't have a clue as how to organize everything. I am a technology analyst and am good at what I do. However, at a new company you need some help to aclimate yourself to your new environment. Also the commute is brutal. While I live and work in NJ my commute is just way too far. I am learning there is very little chance of job advancement. I recently got my license in another area and I am currently working on my own business. Once it takes off I am moving on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work more with new employees. Listen to the workers that have been with you for a long time.

    Pros

    BASF overall is a good company, they care about the employees and they make and effort to keep a good work/life balance. They allow flexiable hours (like every other friday off for working 80hours in 9 days) and encourage employees to use all of their vacation. They have A LOT of resorces avaliable to get things done, and are continually tying to promote cross-business unit teams.

    Cons

    The biggest problem is that it can be difficult to navigate through the red tape. Being a german company it can sometimes feel like you are removed from the people who are making all of the decisions which can be frustrating.
