    I have been working at Sigma-Aldrich full-time

    Pros

    Nice benefits for the place. Large company and opportunity to move around if you are qualified. With lots of locations and since they have been bought out now becoming MillporeSigma there are even more opportunity and places you can move to.

    Cons

    Some positions you do have to work weekend and or nights. The pay is average not too high or low. There is a high turnover rate for night employees. And if you are on nights it may take a long time to get on to days if you want it.

    Advice to Management

    There is definitively room for improvement. The need for making sure employees have all the items they need to get their jobs done needs some improvement. Some departments do need to shed some dead weight which would make a better company.

    I worked at Sigma-Aldrich full-time

    Pros

    Sigma definitely had a family atmosphere when i was there. It often felt like the company was home, and that people really wanted to do a good job.

    Cons

    Sigma didn't really clean up the employee roster very often -- and now they are going through a lot of cuts across the board thanks to their merger.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of communicating to your employees and help them meet their needs too. You'll still maximize your profits.
