Going downhill fast

I have been working at Sigma-Aldrich full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThere are many wonderful dedicated employees.
If you get under the right mgmt, you are treated humanely and have some flexibility.
$72.00 bonus after taxes yearly (wow).

ConsLayoffs happen very few years.
Little to no growth or advancement potential unless you move depts.
A lot of turnover and offshoring lately.
Mediocre pay for unrealistic performance expectations.
Benefits pkg. recently downsized again.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed a major influx of leadership to maximize and retain your human capital.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great company for new graduates to start off in "the real world", but lack of personnel growth opportunities.

Pros: Sigma is a non-competitive, laid back environment. Flexible work… Cons: Lack of career development opportunities. Company claims to be 'one company'… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

Sigma was okay but now..?...?...?

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

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


Pros: Opportunity for advancement (if you change departments...not if you continue in the same) Benefits - 401K match, tuition… Cons: Salary Raises don't keep up with inflation and are a joke. 2.7% increase for meeting and exceeding all expectations.....and I wonder why most employees are… Advice to Senior Management: Invest more in employees, define applied market...invest in technology, finalize business strategy prior to rolling out (duh??), communicate with employees....interact with them (I know they… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
