    Negative energy through out company Office staff and one night supervisor are liars. Company does not care about employee well being, they are just interested in making themselves a profit. DO NOT WORK AT DIODES!!!!!!!!

    Pros

    Benefits ok, long weekends. That's all I can think of.

    Cons

    Upper management always reaping benefits. Seems most everyone gets a healthy bonus except the peons in the fab. Every year you're promised more, but alas it never comes. They demand more output than their man power or very old tools can handle. Advancement options are limited. Pay raises are in tiny increments.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your peons

    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 Management

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

    I worked at Diodes full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits options, flexible hours for salaried employees, casual environment. There was always a project to work on. The new office has a gym inside for all employees.

    Cons

    The opportunities for advancement were limited to who you knew, and there was a lot of alienation between departments. Projects were usually rushed in the last few weeks of each quarter.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees. Communicate with each other. Communicate earlier rather than later.
