Pros

Great people, great benefits, great environment to learn and grow. The management seems to really care about their employees and the work environment is always amicable.

Cons

They may not compensate entry-level positions as well as some other major companies. However, the compensation is still very fair.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I feel that the leadership at Sigma Aldrich does a great job at considering the company employees. I feel fortunate to be a part of the team.

    I have been working at Sigma-Aldrich

    Pros

    Decent Benefits
    Might be a good entry level company

    Cons

    No real strategy for growth other than shuffling around current business units
    Very poor in managing acquisitions
    Does not generate IP at a rate that could be considered innovative
    No commercial focus
    Apathetic management or management by uninformed opinion
    The business systems are fragmented and a joke
    They have good people and acquired some promising technologies, but do not manage them well
    Unwilling to take reasonable risks to grow new businesses
    Wrong people in wrong roles
    Regionalism that creates barriers to work globally
    No ownership of responsibility, pass the buck mentality
    Yes I could go on.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix your infrastructure problems NOW while you are making money
    Learn how to be a global business
    Align your operations to appropriate business units
    Listen to your innovators for innovation, not your supply chain
    Respect your B2B customers or get out of fine chemicals
    If you decide not to support a business unit, sell it or spin it off, don't just let it die.
