    Good job with safety

    Packer (Former Employee)
    Colmar, PA

    ProsI liked the cafeteria, the clean enviroment and they keep warm inside when is cold

    ConsIf you are temporary, the older workers want you to do everything for them and they take the easy job, the forklift driver want me to move heavy skid with a pallet jack and he was supposed to move with the forklift, just for him to go to talk with his friends, don't miss one day to work because they fire you, just for one day

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Not the Best IT Management

    (Current Employee)

    ProsAt the lower levels of the IT department, there are some excellent technical staff at this company. Also, one can work remotely when needed. Pay is in line with the industry overall.

    ConsAnother contributor to this site stated that some of the IT departments management were in over their head – and I find that to be quite true as well. The management in the IT department has neither the required experience, skills, or temperament for their positions. Further, it seems that anyone who dares to disagree with them finds themselves out the door. No doubt that this is a major contributor to the high turnover and lingering problems in this IT organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire managers who actually know how to “Manage” (i.e. plan, think ahead, communicate, and leverage the skills that exist in their department), not former low-level IT workers who have simply been given the title “Manager”. Senior management should also attempt to change the mode of operation in the IT department from “Cover Your Ass and Keep Your Job” to “Let’s Attack Things as a Team”.

    It's Ok

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDiversity in work, alwasy a lot to do, a lot of interaction with different departments, fast-paced and a lot of room to grow your skills in your own way depending on the department

    ConsDepartments operate in silos with conflicting goals. One department's goals (which they receive their bonus on) is the opposite or is conflicting with another department's goals. A strong C.Y.A. attitude has been permeating all departments. There is not enough focus given, too much is expected with not many tools and there is a severe lack of training in some departments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a better traning program for new employees. There needs to be better communication between departments and less C.Y.A. approaches. Departments are fiercly silo'd and this inhibits a lot of growth opportunities and also increases frustration. Upper management needs to focus departments and allow them to operate as smaller businesses (as it was described to me when I started) but still with the same overall mission and focus as the overall Dorman business. I think they've just been growing too fast and they haven't had time to organize and re-focus their direction.
