    I have been working at BASF full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Cons

    It is a very large global company so there are inefficiencies from time to time and the corporate strategy out of head office doesn't always align to local markets and needs.

    I worked at BASF

    Pros

    It is a strong company, world leader in the chemical industry and with lots of internal opportunities. Great organisation overall.

    The structure is quite rigid, changes are slow and decision-making process is sometimes limited. All the cons related to a company of that size.
