    I have been working at Diodes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy to get employment, they are always hiring

    Cons

    Pay scale is lacking, and raises are small. Management has a micromanagement problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't brag about record profits and then give raises that don't at least keep up with cost of living.

    I have been working at Diodes

    Pros

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

    Cons

    very 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 ManagementAdvice

    Listen 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

    Pros

    Small 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 ManagementAdvice

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