Featured Review

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Rain Bird full-time for more than a year

Pros

While they run a "pretty lean ship", this means that you have a lot of latitude to operate within your area of responsibility. Not a lot of oversight and/or micro-managing with a premium put on... getting results within the context of the company culture (e.g getting results but not at the sacrifice of compliance or integrity).

Cons

If you require a lot of direction in your day-to-day work OR are not used to a fast-paced get results climate, this would not be a good place for you.

"I love my job"Jun 26, 2019

Current Employee - Director

I have been working at NWEA full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

I feel empowered to do my work, build my team and now we are creating a strong peer leadership team for our department. We are getting results as an organization and I've never been more confident... of our future.

Cons

It's still too hard to work with some of the teams across the organization.

Advice to Management

Ask the tough questions and probe beneath the surface. We are weeding out bad habits, but some people still manage up while creating chaos around them and their EVP is none the wiser.
