    Pros

    The company is growing and seems stable, though there's always concern when stock prices jump quickly - does the competent ownership/management take a quick buck and leave? So far, no... hopefully it stays that way. I took a big pay cut to work there, but it's a reasonable trade given work/life balance, respect, autonomy, etc. Doesn't seem to be much opportunity for advancement to very senior jobs or bumps in pay, and many employees there are satisfied to stay for the very long-term anyway. Personally, I'll have to jump when the recession ends, but will probably miss Dorman.

    Cons

    Relatively low pay. The company is generally cheap (like stingy-cheap), though that can be a plus sometimes too. Worst workspace ever - old building, smelly bathrooms, horrible lighting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For all the discomforts and inconveniences at Dorman, you've found a way to keep good people around. Be ready to retain employees when the economy gets a little better - we want to stay at Dorman, and we'll continue to trade money and benefits for stability and respect - but not as much as today. As long as you step up to the plate then, and stick around yourselves, we'll stay for the long term.

    Pros

    Dorman has a relaxed work environment where people are informal but work hard. Recognition for a job well done is always given and opportunities for advancement are very good, especially since the company is growing at a healthy rate.

    Cons

    Generally speaking there aren't any cons, although the company has grown quite a bit over the past few years and is suffering the same growing pains that any company in its position would. All in all, very minor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hang on to that small company atmosphere and culture as long as possible. Today many of the downfalls of working at larger companies don't exist at Dorman... these problem may come to Dorman with continued growth, but with concerted effort it may be possible to hold this off for a while.
