Does BASF pay for a gym membership?

Pros

- Great benefits - Nice campus/onsite gym - Friendly people

Cons

- Most IT decisions made in Europe - Heavily silo'd organization, felt like an exile in RTP - Lots of duplicative efforts and organizations - Outsourced most tech functions, making everyone a project manager to varying degrees

Advice to Management

Strengthen core IT functions, create strategic groups that can identify, scale, and deploy solutions instead of having every group try to come up with solutions on their own and selling them (poorly) to every other group. Hire some people with IT skills--too many scientists running IT projects and teams.

Does BASF offer sponsored degrees?

Pros

The company is very nice. They focus heavily on keeping employees safe. There was room to grow and advance my career. The jobs are mostly pretty relaxed. In the office areas they had flexible hours where you could basically choose your schedule. Management was mostly very nice and personable. Most everyone was very nice.

Cons

The benefits are terrible. It was 350$ for insurance for me and my family, and even then the co-pays and deductibles made the insurance basically unusable. The tuition reimbursement is kind of a joke, although, it's similar to what most companies offer. The pay was abysmal. They pay as little as they can get away with, and raises were only 2.5% a year--never more. They're extremely anti-union and they rely heavily on contract workers, who have a lot of difficulty becoming full-time employees.

Advice to Management

Pay your employees more and offer better benefits.
