Great Potential, but ultimately very disappointing to her work here

Corporate IT Director (Former Employee)
Plano, TX (US)

I worked at Diodes full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSome of the best and smartest people I've worked with. Somehow, they left the company.

ConsSalaries aren't great that way to faster for the expansions and acquisitions. People wasn't come first.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Loved working there

Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee)
Chatsworth, CA (US)

I worked at Diodes full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSmall with open communications from the top down, but I worked there a long time ago. Wouldn't change a thing. They were a great company to work for.

ConsDon't know what it is like to work there now, but the pay was not so great when I did.

Advice to Senior ManagementClear path and many opportunities to advance.

Was a great company until they hired the wrong management team.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Plano, TX (US)

I worked at Diodes full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat benefits if you are single.
Great pay if you are willing to work extra extra hard

ConsUpper Management needs to listen to their employees more often for their opinions and concerns Needs more team building events to bring all the employees together. The place is a wreck.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to lower levels of the company and be concerned about your employees and how they are doing. Have team building event to gather all departments together.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

High Turnover and Low Technology

Product Engineer (Former Employee)
Lees Summit, MO (US)

I worked at Diodes full-time for more than 3 years

ProsIt pays some of the bills

ConsWorking every day, and everybody is always blaming somebody else.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay better, invest in technology, stop pointing the finger, allow a person to have a life. The cost of insurance should be cheaper than a policy purchased on the internet with the same coverage. Stop charging salary employees that work 65 hours a week, time bank for a bad weather day. Keep up with the latest technology trend like your facility in England. A calm supervisor produces calm employees, and better productivity. It sounds like you have lost a good amount of senior engineers in the last couple of years.

Diodes Fabtech in Lees Summit: Do Yourself a Favour, Just Don't Come to Work Here

Engineering (Former Employee)
Lees Summit, MO (US)

I worked at Diodes full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSalary and Benefits ok, Bonus scheme awful

ConsAwful Upper Management, no really, really Awful. If you are looking for employment keep looking...

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your staff like they are good people, nurture them and they will flurish, rather than stomping on them with your size 12's.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

If you're not family, friend, or church member, do not work here.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I worked at Diodes

ProsGood benefits (health insurance, 401k with employer match, paid vacation and holidays)
Decent work-life balance
Nice newer office building with gym
Free coffee and filtered water

ConsRigid hierarchy and "my way or the highway" management style
Preference given to insiders (family, friends, church members)
No opportunity for growth or development - promotions are unheard of
Almost exclusive use of Chinese alienates English speakers
Terrible morale due to management's lack of respect for employees
Low regard for integrity and ethics throughout the company

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more inclusive of outsiders and more open to new ideas or suggestions. Taking away privileges is demoralizing...happy employees = better productivity.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It is a very unprofessional environment and the morale among employees is low

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Kansas City, MO (US)

I have been working at Diodes

ProsI really cant think of any other reason except that we are in tough economic times
They have OK benefits

Consvery high turn-over because of poor work environment thus you are constantly training a new person who might quit just after the training
Morale is very low thus not a good environment for productivity and creativity

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the employees when they make suggestions on how to improve the work place
Stop poor planning and last minute rush
Talking down to employees is a strategy that never works
Senior management stop hiring a new manufacturing manager every year each one of them introduces new policies that will take a year to implement then they are gone

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Bad Sr. management, low integrity and ethics, and nepotism plague this company.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Diodes

ProsSmall so people know you, nice people at lower level, and location of new HQ.

Cons~50% of empoyess are from same culture/same church. ~8% related to CEO somehow. Copy identity/flow from TI (not very original). Lack of basic resources for support. Too many manual systems. Bad senior management.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat people with respect and digniity. Ask employees to speak English. Non-speakers left out socially and within team.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
