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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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

Worker Beware!!

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

I worked at Diodes

ProsNone really. The Operators and Supervisors were some of the best people but they were severely limited by the tools they had to work with.

ConsUpper management treats you like dirt. Too many meetings with not enough time to do any decent work in between. Horrible work ethics towards employees. Expected to be there 24hrs per day. Expected to have zero home life. Hugely high staff turnover including middle manager. Blame culture is the order of the day and the only way to survive.

Advice to Senior ManagementPurchase a good wafer monitoring software system for the cleanroom. This one action would increase productivity and give time for all employees to work better/smarter, and would save so much time. Currently they run a paper traveller system which means you can hide wafers/yields easily, and spend many hours finding lots.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
