I worked at Rain Bird full-time for more than 5 yearsPros
There are many great people who work at Rain Bird - most Tucson based positions require a Masters from a reputable college to even make an interview so the result is an environment full of smart people from diverse backgrounds, international too. Sounds like heaven huh?Cons
There has been much written on the personality and moral compass of the CEO and his team of senior staff. Somehow, Rain Bird continues to succeed in spite of itself - heavy reliance on temp workers, staff on unrecoverable corrective actions, staff under review -both of which are disgracefully subjective situations that have little to do with the quality of work you produce - it is flat out intimidation. The companies mantra of only hiring the best is true....the bit they leave out is they also like to fire the best.
Career advancement is limited and you never get to control anything - or make decisions but you do get to suffer the consequences if things go pear shaped. Suffice to say - morale is appalling and staff turnover is ridiculously high. Most folks last between 12 and 24 months.
Watching how this toxic environment makes colleagues cry, personalities change and marriage's crumble is hard to deal with after a while so I left. I actually really liked my job.
Despite the well crafted and well positioned statements Rain Bird likes to portray of itself the reality is much different. The CEO is autocratic with a lot of venom to dispense - a constant state of fear makes it a tough place to stay focused and get your job done.
At the end of the day Rain Bird is a private company whose owners do what works for them. Unfortunately working for Rain Bird rarely works for the employee.Advice to ManagementAdvice
