    Pros

    This is a fantastic company, with a great history and a great family atmosphere. I loved working for this company

    Cons

    I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this company. This is a wonderful company that most people would love to come to work to

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up the great work, the management team in the company does a great job of bringing top talent for the business and the turnover rate is one of the lowest i have ever been associated with.

    Pros

    Great benefits, Great benefits and Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    They say there is an open-door policy, but its not true. HR usually sides with management, it doesn't matter if they are right or wrong. Will not pay you for the job you actually do. Hires you for one position and increases your responsibilities without adjusting your salary. Often gives credit for the success of initiatives to managers who don't deserve it. There is No mentoring program in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bullying your employees. Stop playing politics. Pay your employees what there job function is worth.

    Pros

    Mapei believes in training to improve yourself though both onsite and off. Taking classes in computers, customer relations, dealing with people, new product seminars... etc. Most managers don't try to micro-manage. They are very trusting as long long as things get done on time.

    Cons

    Don't always see the hard work and effort you put into doing your job. Long hours, traveling, working on weekends, being away from home 3-4 days a week. I am salaried so no over time.
    Promote people who have little or no prior knowledge of what their new job entails.

    Advice to Management

    Become more aware of how your job skills effects others you work with. Just because you have a title doesn't make you any smarter than others.

    Pros

    Very corporate attitude. Rules are followed to the letter. Stable work environment with little chance of being laid off or terminated.

    Cons

    Lack of a career change. While better paying positions may become available the chances of an employee moving up are really slim to none unless you're well liked and well connected within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Stop allowing preconceptions guide and dictate how employees are judged for promotions!

    Pros

    The very good thing that Mapei in Garland, TX offers is the health care and 401 K plan.
    Mapei is also very stable company which did not suffered that much during the economic recession in 2008. Mapei still growing and have a huge sale all over the world.

    Cons

    Mapei management is entirely focused in production more than in they employees safety, life balance, work schedule, health condition, family issues, and other things related to the well being of the entire production and maintenance personnel. It is shame that 70% or more of their employees does not speak English and company does not care in offer them English classes. All those English speaking people need to understand their language or have a translator to be able to communicate with them.
    From unit manager,supervisors and other managers all of them does not care about the chemical dust and fumes dispensed in the atmosphere. They have machines running specially to move some percentage of these chemicals from the building and dispense it to the atmosphere outside of the building.
    Some employee use dust mask even when working with vapors like ammonia and other dangerous and similar chemicals. They are not trained that mask for dust will not filter fumes and vapors from other chemicals
     All those managers care about is save money to the company and make favoritism.
    Back in 2010 unit manager sent a memo to all employees saying that they should be thankful because the company is giving them job and place to work. - Out there, he said, other companies are cutting employees and reducing work hours. - Be glad because we are giving you a place to work. This was exactly the words of his memo.

    Advice to Management

    Managers; you guys must understand that we are humans and you guys are not special than us.
    Stop arrogance and value more your employees not matter what they do. Don't make your employees working at 125 F during the summer and at 9 F during the winter . Don't try to makeup that you are good given them powder Gatorade as a thirst remover. We are not stupid as you believe. Hire a real HR personnel and not a person that make favoritism for those that speak her language. Want to save money? fire those excessive number of "managers" that you have in a small plant as in Garland. Your chain of commands have more people than necessary.

    Three concerns involving safety and environment expressed on the Glassdoor website regarding plant safety at MAPEI’s Garland site merit a response and explanation.
