Pros

Sigma has some great people, definitely the best part of Sigma is the wonderful co workers. The parking is free. Not too far of a drive,

Cons

With so many good, hard working people it is hard to watch Sigma go into the dark ages. HR does nothing to help or support workers abused by inadequate managers who have taken advantage of the fear in people. With the trials that face all of us these days I had hoped Sigma would have stepped up to the plate and support their employees instead of taking advantage and using these trying times to use and neglect instead.

Advice to Management

Get a grip on the temperament of your employees. There is rampant distrust of management. Salaried employees are mostly over worked, under payed, and devalued.

    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 Management

    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.
