you are absolutely feel like slave
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

    No opinion of CEO

    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
