Current Employee - Chemical Packager in Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at Sigma-Aldrich full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The people make the job experience easier to cope with, there's a feeling of a close knit neighborhood in our department.

Cons

Some decisions aren't necessarily completely thought out concerning changes within the company, there are one too many meetings during the work month which leaves the employees a feeling of unaccomplishing their goals.
