I have been working at Sigma-Aldrich full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The opportunity to work with skilled and experienced scientists in my area of research
My salary is average for a recent PhD graduate (i think this is pro, specially without not too many job opportunities for PhD graduates with little industry experience). Great environment to work, everyone is very friendly.

Cons

I don't have cons right now. Some new policies are probably not the best, but due to the volatility of the market, it is understood. I think they tried to 'tight the belt' a little bit to avoid firing workers, so no complains about that.

Advice to Management

Fitness and recreational facilities in companies are a must now. We currently dont have neither, and i think that will be helpful to reduce stress among workers.

    I worked at Sigma-Aldrich full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefit and reasonable vacation time;
    Some employee can occasionally work from home;
    Life and work balance pretty good; company does not track your personal time off;
    Overall pretty stable until recently small number of employees got laid off.

    Cons

    Company does not really do anything to developing employees career;
    HR really does not do anything good to employees;
    Do not provide training or help employee to maintain professional certification (i.e. need to pay out of your pocket, but some one can get reimbursed)
    Very very hard to get promotion, you need to "rub" your boss's back to get it;

    Advice to Management

    Develop your talented employees
