    Bizarre Culture Based on Fear and Intimidation

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Cree full-time for more than 8 years


    Pros: Be part of exciting new technology. Cons: Hard to explain but there is no place like Cree. Lots of infighting. Crazy, uncivilized infighting. Lots of good, talented people beaten and broken to… Advice to Senior Management: Enjoy what you have while you have it. The asians made blue and green LED's a commodity and will do the same with LED lighting.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Great technology success story, little regard for work/life balance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Cree full-time


    Pros: It makes for a good positive conversation to tell outsiders that you work for Cree because of the great technology they are bringing to society… Cons: Sincere bewilderment on the part of senior management as to why you might be interested in spending time with your family or doing something else… Advice to Senior Management: I know it is hard to believe, but most people… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
