    I have been working at BASF Corporation

    Pros

    Good benefits such as 401k, tuition reimbursement, medical, dental, and vision
    Internationally known company
    Reasonable hours
    Minimal work effort depending on department

    Cons

    Downside is that most of the employees have been at the company for 15+ years minimum and do not recongnize that the corporate landscape has changed. Believing that what work 10, 15, 20 years ago still applies is like putting your head in the sand. Immediate supervisors are threatened by younger employees and micromange in order to drive the employee away from their positions. Mentality of "do as I say and not as I do" plays big role in assignment of tasks. Complaints to upper management fall on deaf ears as long as the complaint cannot lead to a lawsuit. Most likely reply will be "This is the way corporate America works" or "You're being too sensitive" Inconsistant directions are constantly given. If you are the low/new man on the totem pole, expect to do all of the work for everyone above you. Despite what your title may be when hire, more than likely you will be reduced to an adminstration assistant, answering emails, writing reports, documenting data and having your boss take all of the credit for discovering something that you told them about 5 months prior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to spend time in the lab/projects in order to understand how their areas function. Numerous times has management appeared in my area and are not even aware of what our capabilities are. Managers should walk a mile in their employees shoes for the day.
