Good place for your two years experience. But keep your eyes open for something better.

I have been working at Sigma-Aldrich

Pros

Stable employment. Some facilities are brand new. Tuition assistance.

Cons

Very very very poor promotion potential on the science track. I'm not sure how they expect to keep people when you can only advance to chemist II and maybe supervisor after 10+ years, or you need your phD and it might take you 6 years. Like others said, use it for experience if your entry level then look for something else. Entry level salaries are average, but..... raises and advancement is very poor.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I know you have a bottom line, but if an employee does something that saves the company 50K a year, a nice bonus at the end of that year might not hurt( and I'm not talking about a 5% raise as opposed to a 3-4% raise).

    Pros

    It's a good company. Benifits are nice.

    Cons

    Not much for career advancement. Takes 5 years to receive any more than 2 weeks vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, the review scale is not great. It is not very rewarding.
