Pros

Laid back and casual work environment.

This depends on your group, but management talks the talk and walks the walk. My managers tell me they want to help me succeed and do what they can to make sure it happens.

Recently they started offering a company sponsored MBA program with classes held on site.

Cons

Advancement can be difficult depending on your work group.

Advice to Management

Have more clearly defined paths for advancement so all employees, in all facets of the business, know what they have to do move forward in their careers. Once this is done, make sure management shares this with everyone in the company.

    There is no real team environment, a lot of time is spent gossiping.
    The employee's rights aren't protected by HR policy.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to expert advice instead of people that are just interested in job security.

    Pros

    Fellow employees are friendly and they can be very helpful. Dorman is a growing company, and provides an open environment where you can adjust your hours to your personal needs. They provide the 'Atta Boys" when certain goals are met. There is a well-orchestrated company picnic and Holiday lunch on company time. The dress code is lenient, jeans and sneakers are usually acceptable attire.

    Cons

    There is a lack of training that makes it difficult to really "come on board" for about a year. Training is left up to various people, some of whom have no idea what they are talking about. A title determines your pay, not your accomplishments. Most raises are across the board for everyone, and not performance-based. Although Dorman requires us to do a bi-annual review of our performance, it apparently is not required for management to meet with you, or provide input and/or goals. Advancement is difficult and only occurs if someone leaves. You can work for 2-3 groups and be paid the same amount as someone who works for one group.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to and reward your hard workers. There is a lot of dead wood at Dorman in the office. It's noticed.
