    I worked at BASF full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are competitive, pay is somewhat competitive, the people make it tolerable

    Cons

    As is the case with many companies, you are a statistic, although they want you to think otherwise. They cut and cut personnel until you can no longer keep up. Then they ask you for more, often without providing the support needed for success. That is what I saw, and what I heard from others.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t lay off long term employees people just to replace them with a lower paid employee. It is bad for the employee, for business, and it gives you a bad name.

    I worked at BASF full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good pay, insurance, and many smaller benefits like health club reimbursement, fitness trackers that reward you($), etc. Good work live balance, but that may be up to each department head. Everything is safety first.

    Cons

    Like many large companies, there is much bureaucracy and paperwork. They seem to buy and sell divisions a lot. I've heard a joke that BASF stands for Buys And Sells Factories. If you don't set a new $$record this year it's "OMG the sky is falling, we've got to tighten our belts"
