I worked at BASF Group

Pros

Convient location in RTP makes commuting easy. Offers chance for alternative transportation with bus and carpooling options for employees. On site shower facilities allow employees to bike to and from work. Management concerned with giving recognition and feedback appropriately. Flexible hours allows much freedom in the work day provided that work gets done before deadlines.

Cons

Unfair and restrictive environment to work in. Generally unfriendly co-workers. Crowded lab space and bureaucratic procedures to pass information to management. Additionally, political correct charged environment which hinders free thinking and promotes a "one way" mentality. Favoritism is often shown between managers and employees. Internal power struggle with certain age groups of employees as well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change the workplace environment and address teamwork and cooperation between employees.

    Pros

    structured, organized, typical german "engineered" company.
    sophisticated technology in many areas and processes.
    a truly multinational company with presence all over the world which provides great opportunity to learn about differences in culture

    Cons

    increasing focus to change major organizational structure over a short period of time.
    employees development can be pretty one-sided from the management.

    I have been working at BASF Group as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good work life balance, interesting work and valuable name on the CV both within and outside the chemical industry. Good benefits.

    Cons

    German-centric and quite bureaucratic. Limited opportunities if not in Germany and some lack of quality in some managers. Not that innovative.
