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

    Pros

    -Nice and international colleagues -Flexible time -Summer & Christmas parties -Location -Stable company -Very good for starting your professional life in Berlin but do not stay more than 1.5 years in the same position.

    Cons

    -Salary is very low compared to other jobs with the same function in other companies in the city. -Incompetent leaders -Most of the leaders do not care about developing their people -Leaders are not open at all to new ideas or approaches. They prefer to do everything in the same way or in the most bureaucratic possible way. -More and more they are hiring more non-German speaker people but they have not... adjusted yet that all meetings and massive emails are in English instead of German. This always gives the feeling of being in the wrong place - It also makes no sense to have to attend long meetings in German when you do not understand the language. -Top management does not get any formal evaluation or feedback regarding the TL and TS's performance as leaders (e.g. a 360º anonymous evaluation) so bad leaders stay long time. -Lack of involvement of the Team Leads/Specialists in the daily business. They are not really a support for the team when there is an issue with a customer, they try as much as possible to be safe and avoid any confrontation with them and prefer not interfere at all or always agree with them. -It is not possible to get a salary raise unless you are promoted to a new role that has a better salary assigment.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the selection process/Performance management of leaders within the company. A good leader is more than speaking good German and be able to smile to people.
