Strategic, long term outlook

Manager (Current Employee)

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

ProsBASF is very diverse for a chemical company, with a broad mix of products and sites. Many of the businesses were brought in via aquisition, adding to the diversity. Because of the size of the company and its growth, there are almost always opportunities to apply to new positions if you are willing to relocate.

ConsRigid processes from service platforms drive consistency, but some are difficult to use. Collaborative, strategic decision making can at times be confusing causing missed opportunities.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe emphasis on career development is great, and should be continued.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
