Mountains to the west, beaches to the east, and a vibrant city in between, bring young professionals and growing families to Cary, North Carolina. Cary is the state’s sixth-largest city and is located between Raleigh and Research Triangle Park, an area consistently ranked among the best regions in the country to live, work and play.
The Raleigh/Cary network of communities are an interesting blend of historic, tree-lined streetscapes and energetic urban life. Each has its own pace and influences, from walkable shopping and dining centers with a small-town feel, to the faster-paced entertainment districts where students and professors from seven area colleges and major universities contribute to the diverse mix of people and points of view.
Outdoor recreational choices are almost endless in this part of the Southeast, where four distinct but temperate seasons offer 220 days of sunshine annually. Take a weekend to bike or hike through the Blue Ridge Mountains or head for some of the country’s best beaches at the Outer Banks; both are less than three hours away. Closer to home, explore the trails and parks in Cary’s extensive greenway system, or kayak the local lakes and rivers.
Well-deserved accolades for the area touch on every aspect of the local quality of life, from the reasonable cost of living to favorable employment and housing markets. Families with children have access to an exceptional school system, with Raleigh ranked first among public schools with 300,000-plus people and Cary third among cities with a population from 100,000 to 300,000. Housing choices run the gamut from hip downtown condos, to outlying suburban neighborhoods. Education, health and government are the three largest industries in the area, which is also internationally known for thriving high-tech companies, including a concentration of more than 30 video game development companies.

Advice to Management
None really. The company is a well oiled machine that manages to make its employees feel extremely welcomed.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Epic Games (Cary, NC) in February 2016.
Applied online, two phone screening calls, a take home test, then on site interview, whiteboard session then lunch with employees and 45 minutes interviews with other groups.
Everyone was very friendly and seemed very talented, Epic seems like a great company, the office space looks amazing and UE4 is the best engine in the world. I had to refuse due to immigration policies that required me to move to Guildford, UK for a while before transferring to HQ, after looking at the costs of the area and the salary I was offered I was back to living in a studio, not an Epic problem just a UK problem.
