    I have been working at Cree full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Make an impact everydayin a firm that is growing quickly. LEDs applied to Solid State Lighting (SSL) are on a rapid adaption rate and Cree is the leader for this merging industry. IIt is challenging work but exciting to know the technology of SSL is being applied worldwide and will have a major iimpact to reduce energy consumption throughout the world.

    Working with smart engineers that are passionate about what they are doing. The energy level and focus from from the top management down creates a corporate culture that is positive and fast paced . One thing you know every day at Cree is you are going to more forward.

    Cons

    Long hours due to a work force that is spread around the world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire and promote new people from outside Cree and even outside the semiconductor industry. Start to add on process and infrastructure that will allow Cree to rapidly and efficiently scale as the adaption of SSL increases and Cree grows.
