    I have been working at BASF full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Greatest place in the world to work. Fully committed to the continuing increase of their employees knowledge. Safety is first always not just a slogan, we as a team put safety first . We will not stay in operation without safety. Benefits are the greatest, pay is completive where ever you are located; however, the other compensation is unbelievable. We get 10 days bereavement within your imitate family. Maternity leave for the mother and father same time of paid leave. Retirement ! free financial planning for your retirement.

    Cons

    People that work at BASF stay until retirement age. People are promoted within the Company causing opening. Constantly changing creating new products and needs for new people. :)

    Advice to Management

    Keep going in the direction of all inclusion for a sustainable future. Keep listening to the people doing the work. Continue building a safety culture based on sharing knowledge. Knowledge on how to have a first pass quality mindset.

    Pros

    Lots of resources, the benefits are excellent, and there are locations all over the world.
