    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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