I have been working at Cree

Pros

Leader in LED research in world. Strong university industry collaboration. Working with many PhDs broadens your knowledge and it is good environment to learn.

Cons

you have to work more than 40 hours a week. sometimes it is difficult to keep balance between work and personal life because of work pressure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

should think about the family of employees. Working from 7 AM to 10 PM at night sometimes is not healthy.

    I have been working at Cree full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, nice facility and benefits are OK. They start the day you start which is not the norm but nice.

    Cons

    Long hours are expected, not much of a home life. No communication top down and that makes it hard to get anything done. My psychic network isn't always working. The stock holders matter more than the people or even the product. It's all about the dollar, which makes for a very low employee morale. Training is almost non exisistant, so job duties are not clearly defined. It's a mans world at Cree, women don't have the same advancement opportunities in all fields of operation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People matter, the more you run down your employees the lower morale gets. Employees are leaving daily so it makes it hard to get a workforce that can actually make the product. Communicate, communicate, communicate, what can it hurt? Give clearly defined job duties and instructions, nobody likes to work only to CYA. It's a hard place to work, it doesn't have to be.
