Great company with awesome benefits. Only downfall being in the crop division of the company was being around hazardous chemicals. Also some of the production sites are in the middle of no where.

Some of the best people to work with.
Lab Technician (Current Employee) –  Huntsville, ALDecember 24, 2015
Lab Technician-The people that have been there since the doors open basically feel like they own the business. They hold all the cards. They know the job and basically would rather see you fail than to teach you. Good old boy mentality. They have their favorites. If your liked you will do well. If your not like especially by other co-workers you won't last long. The job is dirty and they won't do anything to make it safer for the employee. Could be a great place to work if they cared about employees as much as they care about pushing stuff out the door.
Pros
Some great people there
Cons
To much favoritism

The plant life before BASF was the best time
Production Scheduler (Former Employee) –  McIntosh, ALDecember 9, 2015
A typical day was all work and fun was not in the vocabulary. What I learned is that BASF is a very large company and employees are only numbers and not individuals. Many of the local management were good to work for but the corporate management was another story. The co-workers I had were a good bunch or hard working folks that always tried every day to do their best. The hardest part was dealing with the constant grind. The most enjoyable part was leaving.
