Cree is by far the best company I've ever worked for and a place where you get to literally change the future.

Pros

Cree is a very high-growth technology company that is changing the way we think about lighting. It is fast-pace with no dull moments where you have the ability to change processes every day. From my perspective, Cree has great pay and great benefits including a free onsite gym. It's located in a great location (Raleigh/Durham, NC) and the people are awesome here.

Cons

My only concern is the sudden changes we seem to go through because we don't have the best forecasting ability. We need better systems here as we continue to grow into a larger company.

Advice to Management

Need to change our external perception that we're a sweat shop. We no longer are that, in my opinion, but the public doesn't know that.

    Pros

    The job is challenging. I like the type of work I do

    Cons

    There is NO balance between work and family. Cree cares about it's success as a company and whatever it takes means whatever it takes.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for a more reasonable schedule. The 50-60 hours per week allow time for nothing outside of work

    not much talent needed
    low hourly rate for large salary/year
    as it says whatever it takes to get the job done
    people most often leave than getting fired
    not a long term job
    it is so bad it is useless to make any advice, they do whatever to get the job done

    before joining be very careful. people are there because it is a job to pay the bill. i am there since i have to feed a family
