      CEO Approval

      The pay is high for a graduate student compared to other locations; can live comfortably even with the high cost of living in Ithaca


      No dental insurance; no spousal medical insurance

        Has good benefits, depending on the dept work/life balance can be good. Pay is very good but you have to live out of the area to afford housing which takes up the extra money.


        Staff does not seem very motivated, they are happy to do just what is required of them and no more. Some managers need a lesson on how to manage most have no training. The University staff in general are not a happy lot, there have been lots of cut backs and most people feel over work and under appreciated. Very hard to advance, they like to tell you that you can move in the "bands" but people always want to know why you aren't applying for a band up if you want to move. HR is only fooling themselves if they think banding is working for staff.

      Anyone have any experience interviewing with BASF?


      Marketing Manager

      Went through multiple rounds of interviews for a manager role (Screening, hiring manager, group panel) and yesterday got an email inviting me to the final round with the VP. Only 2 hours after I responded and the recruiter sent an invite for the interview, I get an email saying they “are actually going a different direction for the role”. Upset yet another opportunity yanked away. I emailed back politely asking what happened to cause this sudden change for feedback purposes. Any thoughts (cont)
