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

    Pros

    The sky is the limit if your willing to put in the work. Culture of internal development and giving internal employees a chance to bid on jobs before external candidates are considered. Campus program to recruit interns with an eye towards diversity is developing well.

    Cons

    It takes some time to get integrated into Cree. Once you build relationships it becomes much easier. Systems are currently being improved which will help speed up integration.
