(RTP) Very nice facilities, good corporate values, but RIGID and prone to the fad-du-juor.
Pros: good benefits (a pension & a 401(k)), excellent funding for projects & equipment, good core values....they try
Cons: pigeonholing (specialization is valued, versatility is not), lack of advancement potential, the performance review process is hideous & arbitrary
For a giant company, BASF has excellent corporate values in a multitude of areas & really strives to live by them. Very nice facilities, good training, lots of good people at every level. Great benefits, great funding for projects & equipment.
Still, the corporation as a whole (and Ag Products as a division) seems to buy into every single stoopid management – more... fad or politically correct cause that comes down the pike, ESP. regarding performance reviews. "Dilbert" could've worked here & noticed little difference. Also, it's VERY difficult to get promoted or to switch groups b/c corporate HR policies are hyper-rigid.....all substantive changes occur w/o any real significant employee input (tho' management does go thru the motions), and change that does occur is about as quick as changing the direction of a fully-loaded barge.
Oddly, tho', they are very family-friendly & accommodating to familial issues as they arise. – less
