I have been working at Sigma-Aldrich

Pros

Aldrich provides pretty good relocation benefits and a pretty decent work-life balance. I was generally able to take a day off when I needed to. It's a very stable company with good profits.

Cons

They make you pay back your entire relocation benefits if you leave within two years which is very unusual in the industry but might be the companie's way of "retaining" employees. Salary is very low compared to other companies and the benefits are just average. The work is not very exciting and there is nothing high-tech about the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more into employees or otherwise it will be very difficult to retain talent. Created a more exciting work environment.

    Not a good place to Work (Miamisburg)

    Pros

    Its a very good Company to work but the side I am working ( Miamisburg) is totally mismanaged. Most of the managers and staff have no knowledge of chemistry. Sigma is trying to send some good talent but not those are not geting chance, and they are leaving this place.

    Cons

    Tell me where in the world a Ph.D and having number of years Experince and publications, patents reporting to B.Sc. More over those B.scs don’t even know what they are doing but pretending they know more then Ph.D. Miamisburg R&D and production both are some. Some good talent is their but not getting chance to make the changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are spending so much money and time to bring talent to this side. I think you should send some one from the corporate side to watch this unit and get feed back from the employee. Also give the opportunity to inside talent those who want to contribute with good chemistry knowledge.
    In my knowledge Miamisburg side is worst side in sigma-Aldrich .
