    I worked at Cambrex full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good work environment. The employees worked well with each other at work and outside of work. Still have friends and gathering with the people I worked with during my years there. Good team environment no place is perfect.

    Cons

    No real negatives to speak of my manager and upper management treated me well. I was respected and able to share my views about the deparment I worked within.

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

    Pros

    I'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...

    Cons

    Poor 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.
