I worked at Cambrex full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI'm sorry, but I cannot find anything positive to say about Cambrex in Karlskoga. No matter how hard I try. Leaving is problably the best thing...

ConsPoor salary.
No career opportunities.
Laboratories not fit for chemical work. Have not been updated for ca 30 years.
Laboratory safety is appalling – a wonder that accidents are not more common.
No development anywhere

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
