    I worked at Sigma-Aldrich

    Pros

    Fairly laid back environment, no one really busting your chops about anything assuming you stay on top of things, which isn't hard to do.

    Cons

    Pretty much zero career advancement, the daily grind begins to get you down and they have a culture of hiring safe employees, not talented ones. If you do have talent, prepare to have it wasted.

    Advice to Management

    Shake things up a bit from time to time, promote from within, and try not to collect so much dead wood.

    some people can get ideas above their station ( think they are better than they really are!), but the other 98% are great to work with, Long hours CAN happen, but not too often.

    HR should review the skill set of an employee and bring up the employee and motivate the employee to build his career. Also Management should work and behave well with the employees

    I worked at Sigma-Aldrich full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You will gain experience in science and in chemistry.

    Cons

    Getting a promotion takes quite a long time. Additionally, people that are more capable and talented in the laboratory will receive more work and responsibility while those who are less talented and hardworking get easier tasks. Both types of people will advance at the same pace through the company.

    Advice to Management

    Reward talent and hard work.
