      Pros

      BASF provides it's employees with benefits to a level I have not seen in other organizations. The 401k match is better than I have ever seen, vacation time is better than the national average, flexible work from home schedules are available in many positions and the general atmosphere among other employees is positive

      Cons

      It is a large company so it can take a long time to get some things done in the organization. Some positions require a lot of travel, so it can be difficult for people with families, but the job descriptions are usually accurate when it comes to specified travel.

      Excellent company to work for! Best decision I've made to work for this company.

      Pros

      Supports diversity, innovative and creative ideas, work-life balance (allows work from home a couple days per week). Salary is highly competitive and because the company is a well-rounded diversified business, it continues to outperform and grow in the markets/industries they serve. Strong, long-term company stability. Benefits are excellent. Many employees have stayed with the company for their entire careers, high amount of PhDs, MBAs and graduate degrees among young employees.

      Cons

      Very large company and like all companies of this size has difficulties with bureaucracy and quick decisions/responses. Silos exist and breaking down barriers to cross-BU collaboration is slow.
