Abcam is a wonderful company to work for,as said....caring,friendly,professional.
I worked within Stockroom/Chemistry Labs in Bristol and unfortunately was made redundant(hence 4 stars not 5!) but Abcam did everything they could to keep me and my colleagues in work including offering me a role at their Cambridge facility which I declined due to the distance.( I luckily found employment in Bristol quite quickly after redundancy)
As a first job for a Chemist,Laboratory Technician or Logistics/Stockroom Technician it would be ideal,they will help and support your future all the way,especially if you show willing and appreciate everything they do.
I thoroughly enjoyed my 6 years within the Bristol labs and worked with supportive,friendly management...and staff generally.
I would say salary and opportunities are certainly on a par with similar jobs.
Work environment(friendly, professional, caring) opportunities, management
