Very negative place

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsCree is a leader in LED technology and is a good place to make a difference and contribute to changes. There are many good people working at Cree and opportunities to learn most areas. It is also a great area, close to the beach and mountains and a reasonable cost of living.

ConsTerrible management and a very negative workplace. Management is full of scientist with little interpersonal skills, although very smart. Planning is poor and everything is last minute. There is an overall view that cheaper is better and that it is cheaper to make it work, but overall cost is not calculated. Need to embrace a true manufacturing mentality. Also needs to update IS infrastructure.

Advice to Senior ManagementPeople skills needed. Management needs to learn to treat people with respect and still get work done. Needs to embrace manufacturing mentality and grow with the size of the company. Treatment of the employees is very poor and results in too high of a turn-over rate.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
