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

    Pros

    Industry leader, decent pay and very good benefits, seem to genuinely care about employees. Senior management is very competent. Committed to quality and well respected in industry.

    Very process and procedure oriented, sometimes introducing innovative ideas can be frustrating. Can be slow moving, market follower. People tend to stay a long time sometimes limiting career advancment.

    Current Employee - Security Technology Analyst in Florham Park, NJ

    I have been working at BASF Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They gave me a job after I was laid off from my last job in April. My coworkers are helpful and the pay is decent. I worked at my previous company for 25 years so having friendly coworkers helps make the transition easier.

    Cons

    Company is huge and management doesn't have a clue as how to organize everything. I am a technology analyst and am good at what I do. However, at a new company you need some help to aclimate yourself to your new environment. Also the commute is brutal. While I live and work in NJ my commute is just way too far. I am learning there is very little chance of job advancement. I recently got my license in another area and I am currently working on my own business. Once it takes off I am moving on.

    Advice to Management

    Work more with new employees. Listen to the workers that have been with you for a long time.
