    I worked at BASF Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    multinational multidisciplinary company making a lot of innovative products
    makes several attempts to create a lifestyle and culture at the company
    opportunities to learn about several topics and projects and advance

    Cons

    for me, working on genetically modified organisms was a challenging moral decision
    the company is striving to be more innovative and fresh, however is struggling against engrained historical ways of doing things, in my humble opinion

    Advice to Management

    It would have been great to have better communication and clearer expectations of how work packages were coordinated between different working groups
