Cons

Long hours

The One Company model is a great concept in many areas of the business, though in other areas it could hurt our response time to our customers. It is easier to turn a speed boat than a cruise ship.

    I have been working at Sigma-Aldrich full-time (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.
