Stopover at best
Engineer (Former Employee), Tucson, AZSeptember 30, 2013
Living in a city like Tucson, RB has to offer the compensation that it does. This added to the fact that there is complete misdirection from the management adds to an employees stress level.
There certainly are some pros like decent to expert (in their field) coworkers, introduction to new technologies (though they do not believe in training their employees), – more... opportunity to contribute to practically every field, dealing with a diverse group of people and becoming an expert mentor (as they aren't focused on retention).

The Cons certainly outweigh the Pros of working here.
Namely:
- Lack of originality at management level (has become a follower in the industry rather than a leader)
- No advancement opportunities
- High Turnover
- Lack of local talent (or the fact that RB has burned several employees/candidates)
- Directionless management
- No retention/growth (personal) policy
- Redundant work with aversion towards change

The most challenging part of the job was trying to do things right while trying to get that (same) point across salesmen, managers & consultants, and at the same time handling multiple projects.

RB is an international company lost in its history trying to compete with players in an established market while having no game plan. – less

Great products aimed at the irrigation industry
Contractor Account Manager (Former Employee), Detroit, MIAugust 14, 2013
Overall the product line at RainBird is very good. Innovative and practical to use.

Creating relationships with contractors while having a distribution network support you is critical and often difficult.

Good compensation plan - good communication on how to succeed and earn bonus potential.

Only if you are desperate for work.
Sr. Tooling Engineer (Former Employee), Azusa, CAJune 19, 2012
I worked there for 12 years, and I saw many very qualified managers and engineers come and go. Company is known far and wide as a revolving door. Managers generally last two years on average. One or two very very mean ones have lasted longer. I guess the owner likes mean managers. They have an airport style metal detector to make the paranoid owner – more... happy so you have to dump out your pockets and briefcase going in, going out, after lunch going in, end of day going out. Be prepared to leave a quarter in the box if you want coffee for your break, but the corporate angels get their fill for free. When they closed the Golf division, they unloaded gifted designers with many patents on the wall and 25 to 30 years with the company. Just Gone!! (and not a thanks) – less

I have noticed in their job postings over the last 3 years they keep advertising the same jobs over and over again. This indicates to me they have a very high turnover as stated by its employees. You would think the top management would see this after 3 or 4 years, but then again maybe that is their methodology, which is very similar to Dish TV. I say move on to a company that does not have the turnover because, why waste 2 to 3 years and lose tenure from a solid company. Best of luck!

difficult company to work for with high turn over
sales (Current Employee), tucsonDecember 8, 2011
Pros: pay is above average
Cons: health benefits are poor to terrible, no job security, no sense of values.
The culture is poor and based mostly on fear of your job. Most people only last about a year and a half with the company. Turn over is high in corporate positions and sales. It is seen as a badge of management to fire people to show that you can make a hard decision. They hire some of the best people I have ever worked with, but then the quickly drive – more... the majority of them away. – less
