The management was poorly organized and did not know what they are supposed to do
Oilfield​ ​Technical​ ​Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 11, 2018
There were a few bad managers within the group but there was no good way to replace them. There was a time when many people leave the company or switch group for better work environment.
Frequently, there was last minute assignment via e-mail in the evening and the dead line is only 1-2 days away. This created choatic work environment.
Pros
Great benefit from a big company, diverse culture
Cons
poorly organized work priority, and wrong managers in wrong places

Customer Account Specialist - Distribution (Former Employee) –  Florham Park, NJJanuary 10, 2018
a lot of work and very little support. Great coworkers. Management was not effective. Once they reached their position it was all about them not about their team although that is what the company touts.

Storeroom Clerk
Bagger (Former Employee) –  McIntyre, GAJanuary 9, 2018
I enjoyed working in the storeroom with the parts. Shipping and receiving the parts and processing the invoices everyday. Order the parts that the guys needed made me feel important. My job was to make sure the store had all the parts on the shelf in a timely manner.
I loved my job.

Good Old Boy
Production (Former Employee) –  Sececa SCJanuary 5, 2018
They have a very entrenched "good old boy" system. Upper management is aware but does nothing. Corporate officials recognize it but do NOTHING. The security manager is a buffoon and should have been fired several times in the past. If you enjoy kissing a**, this is the place for you.
Pros
above average pay
Cons
"Good old boy" system is alive and well

Great place to work
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Spartanburg, SCDecember 24, 2017
BASF promotes quickly. The first few promotions are based on completing certifications. The faster you learned the faster you received raises. Only down side was located in a small town. Lots of family politics and bias.
Pros
Hours, pay, and benefits.
Cons
Direct supervisor took whatever upper management said and didn't defend, To much family working under each other.

Quality Control Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) –  Brighton, CODecember 24, 2017
I was a Quality Control Technician for this company. The benefits and starting wage were pretty good, however most employees have to do 12 hour days which can get difficult. I would recommend this job to a friend.
Pros
Job stability, great benefits
Cons
long hours, can be a stressful environment at times, and you're dealing with dangerous chemicals

Supply Chain Planner (Former Employee) –  Erie, PADecember 21, 2017
Whether it is at a specific plant or communications between different plants; BASF is HUGE on communications. They have meetings every morning between all departments to discuss how the plant is running, any upcoming changes, even spitballing plans to make the company run more efficiently.

Winners and Losers
Customer Technical Service (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCDecember 11, 2017
No management accountability. No direct lines of advancement. Strong safety culture, but not always applied appropriately. Great benefits if you can get past the "non-exempt" ceiling. Hiring and advancement are on potential rather than experience, accomplishments, or actual performance (i.e. experienced Chemistry PhDs hired in as entry-level technicians). Be young and pretty.
Pros
Benefits, resources.
Cons
Lack of accountability, lack of transparancy, lack of any sort of career development program or plan.

Chemical Production Process Operator (Former Employee) –  Geismar, LADecember 9, 2017
I liked this job but was ROF'd out. The company decided to reduce its operator workforce, and laid off around 80 employees. It did not last, as they began calling some back.

Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Saint Louis County, MODecember 7, 2017
Production people are great to work for but this is probably the worse place I ever worked when it comes to management. No room for advancement. If you don't have a degree forget about moving into management or any other job outside of production! Tend to make rules and policies as they go that benefit the company.
Pros
Good benefits, pay is okay
Cons
management, outsourcing products
