    Pros

    This is the type of company that people don't think exist... They truly value your contributions and are friendly and supportive. This environment may not be for everyone, as you must be a self-starter and motivated to produce results.

    Cons

    The freedom in which you operate can sometimes make you feel like you have no direction.

    Pros

    interesting and hardworking people.
    casual attire.
    upper-management is laid back.
    "be your own boss"

    Cons

    very hard to move up internally
    the pay is not competitive and many people are under paid for the amount of work that they do.

    Advice to Management

    utilize a new performance review. there are many PMs who fly under the radar.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Tries very hard to keep the small company feel even though operations are expanding at large. Decent pay and steady hours.

    Cons

    Virtually no relationship or communication between the departments. The office could be a bit nicer as well. Still pretty good though.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to increase communications between departments. Departments seem to keep to their own, and it is almost sort of cliquey.
