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

Pros

Promotes from within, great benefits (401K, Insurance, Education), great coworkers. Getting time off for the unexpected surprises in life is not difficult. As long as you do your job well, you will be OK.

Cons

As with any company, some communication issues with certain departments. Changing departments is the best chance of promotion. Obsessive C-Y-A mentality of some hinders forward progress.
