    I have been working at BASF Group (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people at BASF are good to work with and the management team is very supportive and aware of safety.

    Cons

    The benefits at BASF lack to entice new employees to the company. When the plant was built in the year 2000, we had a lot of good benefits. Unfortunately, over the years most of the benefits have been discontinued and are no longer available.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great support for the operations department. It surely helps drive the site to be successful and to have good moral.
