Quality Control Lab Technician (Current Employee), Pasadena, TXApril 4, 2015
Safety is top priority here. They are always updating safety programs to ensure safety for all employees. Company has good benefits and is global which makes it easy to transfer to different sites. Another good thing is they are willing to help employees move up in status and work on goals to help strengthen the employees to move up to better jobs, either in the company or just in the workplace.

Very diverse company
QA Lab Analyst Sr (Current Employee), Freeport, TXMarch 5, 2015
Pros: salery, benifits, being treated as an equal, room for growth
Cons: negative atitude of some co-workers
BASF is a very diverse company in which I am proud to be a part of. The department in which I work is the analytical department. This particular dept. is very unique from any other lab in the company. It has one of the highest volumes produced and the highest profits. What we make in this block is SAP (super absorbent polymer) which is used to make diapers and other products. This is also a very demanding unit and challenging. I love this job and love the day to day and night challenges is has for me. This is the only lab at our site in which has shift work, meaning we work the same schedule as the operators in the plant. 4 on 4 off 12 hour shifts rotating form week to week from days to nights.
The people in this plant are all treated as equals. From the managers to the janitor. Everyone has a purpose and is treated as such.

Bad management at Geismar. The company kept losing good employees. The political issues are everywhere even in the lab. People working there cheating, fighting for one spot...

Being a contractor I was given a cubby hole to work in. Engineers were great to work with. The person I reported to knew less about how to function in PO SAP than me.

Regulatory Specialist (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOJanuary 23, 2015
Pros: benefits, safe working environment, friendly co-workers
Cons: limited advancement
The registration process was challenging, yet stimulating and rewarding. Interaction with co-workers was productive and pleasant. Onsite management was very open and responsive to suggestions/ideas and recognized daily efforts and achievements. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing I was working in a safe, pleasant environment with caring, responsible co-workers. The most difficult part of the job was having all administrative positions relocated to another state and not being able to relocate due to family ties/responsibilities; thus ending my 15-year employment.
