What Cree's Employees Say

Cree employees know how to lighten up after a long day tinkering with wafers and running factories. In addition to themed holiday parties and Sushi Tuesdays, the group finds other ways to socialize, such as craft brewery visits, lunchtime gym sessions, and the famous annual Cree Picnic for employees and their families featuring a food truck rodeo, games, music, and fireworks.
