    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

    Great Pay awesome Benefits. Opportunity for growth and many task and room for improvement. Promoting is recommended they are not afraid to help you grow to the role that you want!

    Cons

    Not to much teamwork more individuals non communication skills. There is a great deal of backstabbing in this department. No one want to take action on their own mistakes quick to pass judgment or blame.

    Advice to Management

    Just listen and believe in your people the undermining them and there beliefs.

    Pros

    It has good benefits and you start off with 4 weeks vacation

    Cons

    A lot of things come out of corporate. This site is something that goes back to the tv show Mad Men. There is a little circle of leaders that have been there a long time. They hire and promote their local buddies, if your not liked by them you will have a hard time here. Turnover for skilled jobs is very high. A lot of projects they talk about but never get completed or work out to make improvements.

    Advice to Management

    BASF is a good company, its just not happening here that way. Its the good ole boy club.
