Pros – Rain Bird used to have a great Sales and Marketing staff that led the industry in Service to their Customers. Then they started the "MBA requirement" and started hiring almost exclusively from outside the industry. This was the beginning of the slide that today compaired to then has resulted in many comments to me from the industry reguarding the lack of or poor Customer Service.
Cons – I left Rain Bird because I got tired of waiting for them to act on an obvious need in the Market Place that still exists today and for the insentives being put further and further out of reach after having another very successful year of gaining Market Share.
Advice to Senior Management – It's to late for this, They didn't listen then so why would I waste my time trying now!
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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 Senior Management – 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.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
