    I have been working at Rain Bird full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and compensation.

    Flexible work hours and personal time.

    Opportunity to design commercial products from concept to customer.

    Many very good engineers on the team.

    Have read several complaints about succession planning causing problems. I've never experienced ANY pressure to release a team member because they didn't pan out as a manager. Corporate guidelines SPECIFICALLY provide recognition and advancement separate from "management" so I'd strongly resist any pressure if it came. Technical, non-mangement positions up to principal scientist are available (and really exist in the building).

    Strong emphasis on quality. Willingness to sacrifice budget for schedule.

    Opportunity to visit customers, understand needs and wants, design products to fit.

    Cons

    Employees are "ranked" against other group members which increases competition.

    Communication between business areas can be difficult. Concerted effort is needed to break "silos".

    Production distributed across several facilities in multiple countries can increase effort during release of new products.

    Vacation benefit based on *Rain Bird service*, rather than previous job benefits. If you presently get 5 weeks of vacation, RB does not match when you join.
