    I have been working at Dorman Products full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As a former Automotive Technician, it's nice to be able to use those skills and others on something way less stressful and almost as satisfying. The people that I work with seem like genuinely nice people...most of them anyway. And with so many different projects going on, there's rarely a dull day.

    Cons

    The 'Culture of Contribution', where everyone is an "important contributor, rather than employee, and no one is more important than the next person" is blatantly disingenuous, we haven't received any merit raises as long as I've been here, due to being" financially unable" but we have quarterly meetings to talk about how much money the company makes and they even gave each employee a full color brochure, complete with a word search on the back, about how 'awesome it is to work for dorman'. How much did that cost? Lastly, getting equipment needed to complete a task can be painstakingly difficult, more times than not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend money on retaining talent and equipment.
