    Cons

    1. Being a relatively small subsidiary of a global German company, you often feel left on the fringes 2. Moving between functional groups can be difficult due to the entrenchment that has occurred over the years (this is also true for moving between business units) 3.

    I worked at BASF full-time

    Pros

    Excellent place to learn and build experience. They are slow at decision making, but once made it is precise and accurate. Very high standards of safety adopted

    Cons

    India management is too hierarchical always boasting about their experience and limiting new ideas from young. Too much politics and internally the future of the organisation and its management is already decided, once join it is easy to predict who will be next in line for a role. Most of the management focuses on me, myself and I.

    Advice to Management

    Give opportunities to the new leaders, let them grow just like someone let you grow. If you do not understand this it is worthless being at leadership positions.
