    I have been working at BASF full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good Health Insurance benefits, flexible job hrs

    Cons

    Procurement steers the ship, not real world results. IT also locks you down....literally. Safety makes it tough to have anything outsourced. the company may be the worst at what they do, but if they have a good safety record they are in. Basically, the company ties your hands behind your back via "support" functions. No empowerment given to the employees making decisions
