    Great Potential, but ultimately very disappointing to her work here

    Corporate IT Director (Former Employee)
    Plano, TX

    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

    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.

    Flexible hours, but stagnant work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood 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.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementCommunicate with employees. Communicate with each other. Communicate earlier rather than later.

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

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

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Plano, TX

    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

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

    (Current Employee)

    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

    High Turnover and Low Technology

    Product Engineer (Former Employee)
    Lees Summit, MO

    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.

    Please heed the previous warnings!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood comraderie in the lower levels.

    ConsBig disconnect in the sr mgmt and corporate office. Little compensation and salary for the work they require.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhat a joke!

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

    Engineering (Former Employee)
    Lees Summit, MO

    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
