    I worked at Mapei full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay. That's about it.

    Cons

    Ex-cons, many of them at the Garland plant, many. If you have a record and can't find a job because of it. Go to Mapei they'll hire you no problem.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire people with a squeaky clean record and hire convicts with lenghty records. You can't mix the two together and expect everybody to get along.

    I worked at Mapei full-time

    Pros

    The work was simple which made balancing work and life manageable

    Cons

    Terrible management. Half of them don't know what they are doing. With the result of bad decision making departments end up wasting on whats going on rather than getting the job done.

    I worked at Mapei full-time

    Pros

    The pros of MAPEI are that it is an internationally known company, it has a lot of parking, most of the employees are friendly, and the location is very convenient, right off I-95.

    Cons

    They use a very antiquated computer system, which involves staff entering numbers one by one into a database. Many of the admin employees are doing work that could be done in 1 or 2 hours by a computer system. The supervisor in my department was very resistant to change and acted like she was threatened by me. I liked the IT and science guys, but admin ladies were horrible. Also, the system of cubicles under fluorescent lights seemed very dated and not an inspiring atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Use modern programs, get rid of duplicate and inefficient labor. They are doing 1 hour jobs in 8 hours just to make sure their job doesn't disappear.

    Pros

    Great benefits, set schedule, shift goes by fast.

    Cons

    Low, stagnant wages for putting in the hard work necessary.

    Advice to Management

    A 30 cent per year raise (if management decides to give it to you) is not an "incentive", it's barely keeping up with inflation.
