I have been working at Rain Bird full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
Very smart, talented people work below the directors. You establish some very good professional friendships. Salary is good but bonuses or raises non-existent.Cons
People are not valued. They develop state of the art products but with antiquated equipment & IT support. Manager must do everything; for such a large company there is extremely limited HR, recruiting, administrative help. Company is not nimble enough to compete in the new business climate.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Change the culture.
Value your people; don't just think you value you them because you say you do, prove it in your actions!
You expect managers to be admin; give them the support & resources they need to manage and grow the business.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
