    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.

    Bad management, ineffective teaching methods,

    Advice to Management

    Don't use your employees as scape goats for errors that were made under your supervision and direction. Teach the employees proper procedures before allowing them to work. Hire supervisors above the age of 25 without egos.
