Productive and fun workplace, with many opportunities for self learning & development

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I had a wonderful experience as an HR Intern in BASF Learning & Development team. I was part of the efforts for digitization and automation of learning and development for fellow employees, and specifically had opportunities of managing an HR chatbot implementation project as well as the gamification project. I also learned other skills such as Visuals Basic Editor, amongst other skills but this required personal motivation and learning desire. A typical day at work involved adapting to new situations and problems daily and fixing them case by case. Management was supportive and kind, which allowed me to make mistakes and learn from them effectively. The hardest part of the job was the relatively fast-paced nature of the job that requires you to think for creative solutions in a timely manner while remaining knowledgable about current trends in the industry. The most enjoyable part of the job, however, was the level of freedom and space given for self-learning and development, in which I took advantage of to learn new skills and request for more job scope and duties as much as possible.

Great Environment

I was a intern at the functional department (Supply Chain & IT). BASF is a great company with advanced IT infrastructure, but enacting change and performance improvement is difficult due to many layers of reporting.

Pros

A lot of benefits

Cons

Lots of reporting lines

A productive, collaborative and fun work place

BASF has an open, inclusive and collaborative working environment where people help out each other making it really fun to work there. You get a great amount of responsibility and can build up responsibilities. Feedback was part of the job which helps one to improve even further. Overall, I was 5 months at the company and thus my experience is based on this time frame. I definitely recommend the company and consider it an attractive employer.

Diversity and inclusion

여성들에게 차별이 적다. 자유로운 토론 문화와 다국적 문화를 체험하기 좋은 환경. 사내 경쟁이 비교적 치열함. 공격적인 경영방식에 독일식 치밀함을 갖춘 조직문화. 개인적으로 자기계발을 할 수 있는 기회가 많으나 직원들간의 소통이 잘 안됨. 기술자를 중시하는 조직문화.
