    Negative Outlook

    I worked at BASF full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salaries are competitive.

    Cons

    No career development plans - not even for ambitious employees. Management decisions mostly taken by gut feeling and without proper research. Lack of diversity management especially when it comes to promotions. Management of employees mostly through high psychological pressure and not through motivational tactics.

    I worked at BASF

    Pros

    It's a company that helps and motivate you to grow as a person and profecionally. You feel part of something big when you work for a company as BASF.

    Cons

    It is a company as any other, when they have to cut on budget they just cut it. If you are a part of that budget your gone.

    Advice to Management

    The company is as good as the employees working for it. People, fathers, mothers, families, not just numbers and graphics.

    Pros

    Great work environment where you are expected to run your own business unit growing sales and managing expenses. Well respected in the agriculture industry and all customers know at least some of the products before you walk in the door.

    Cons

    Territories kept getting larger with technology transfer and managing work and attending family school functions and games was sometimes difficult
