"Very good Company, with good products. However, some divisions lack good senior management. In these areas, counter productive politics run rampant."
What do you like about working at BASF?
"In the manufacturing areas I was in (4 different ones) the average workers and front line managers were well above average."
Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
"Good company, good products. But if you don't enjoy politics, make sure your manager is aware, or your department could be the next scapegoat."
What don't you like about working at BASF?
"A German culture where it is dificult to admit to problems, when you do not have a solution yet, was ok because their technical people were very driven and resourcefull. This was warped in America to, the managers creating problems they could resolve, to make themselves look needed, and to marginalize many of the technically competant."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"360 degree reviews, and pay for performance. These were both attempted, and quickly abandoned, because of the truth it brought to the light."
