Unbelievably HORRIBLE Place - but you really should believe the insights on glassdoor.com before you opt to work here!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Tucson, AZ

ProsTucson is a great place to live, but unfortunately not many alternative, reasonably well-paying jobs (Once you get here and fall in love with the community, it's tough to stay due to lack of professional opportunities...)

Competent, albeit generally scared co-workers who see that everyone is in the same dire straits at the prison-like Rain Bird facility, and thus always looking for a job "on the outside"

Air conditioned building (important in 100+ degree heat!) and free, but uncovered parking.

ConsIncredibly twisted, demented and unhealthy culture - Senior Management is not only disinterested in having a decent quality of life for themselves and their own families, but they feel compelled to make their employees equally (or more) miserable - such a sad, sad environment...

Although the >40% annual turnover is tough to believe, it aligns well with corporate philosophy of squeezing as much as possible out of new employees and then simply kicking them to the curb once they're broken down and defeated, and often after they have left behind fairly decent situations in other parts of the country.

Rampant paranoia is evident from the very top and throughout SBU leadership - I've never seen a place that not only hates its channel partners (i.e., distributors) but has obvious disgust for its employees, the very people who are simply trying to help the company succeed, or at least survive.

Advice to Senior ManagementRegrettably there is nothing that can be said that would break through - the paranoid, power freaks in control are just not able to listen to reason. Only the inevitable implosion of the company and subsequent sale of assets by a bankruptcy court will enable the brand to last much more than 10 more years...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    This may be the worst place to work anywhere.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Tucson, AZ

    I have been working at Rain Bird

    Pros: They pay well, Tucson is a very nice place to live especially… Cons: This company works harder at figuring reasons to not get things done. There are more meetings about having meeting than any place I have ever… Advice to Senior Management: Sell the company and let real leadership do the job. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
