    Current Employee - Security Technology Analyst in Florham Park, NJ
    Current Employee - Security Technology Analyst in Florham Park, NJ

    I have been working at BASF Corporation full-time (less than an 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.
