Whenever employees discuss their roles at Rain Bird, one of the first things that comes up is that they feel like their ideas and opinions matter. Tom Marek, the International Sales and Marketing Manager for Service, says, “Good ideas, if you're willing to carry the good idea forward, that behavior is rewarded, not discouraged here.” He adds that, in his experience, the support given by leadership at Rain Bird is unusual as compared to other companies where he has worked: “That behavior is far more rewarded here than many other places.”
Another employee, Brendon Hicks of the Central Control software team values the teamwork at Rain Bird. Teams support each other and everyone is willing to pitch in to get the job done well. It’s common to work outside of your group as well, and even with senior leadership. “It’s very collaborative,” says Brendon. “On paper, there might be a fair number of steps between you and a top person in the company, but we work hand-in-hand all the time.”
Here at Rain Bird, we have a core set of values that form the foundation of everything we do. We place a high value on productivity and positivity, and we encourage the personal and professional growth of our employees.
One of the many ways we live our values here at Rain Bird is through giving back to the community. Not only do we encourage our employees to volunteer with local organizations, but we also hold corporate volunteer days. We also organize charity drives along with local United Way centers to make it easy for all employees to give back to the local community.
Our central philosophy is The Intelligent Use Of Water™. We are committed to environmental conservation and saving water. Working for a company like Rain Bird that works hard to create positive change in the world is fulfilling. “It's nice to be able to continue on in something that has definitely a positive net effect on the environment in industries that are generally considered environmentally responsible,” says Tom Marek about our water-saving philosophy.
Aside from the ways we help our employees bring change and do good, there are other benefits to working at Rain Bird. Another great thing is that we’re headquartered in Tucson, Arizona. This city sees over 300 days of sunshine a year, so pack your sunglasses! Tucson is a haven for hikers, bikers, and nature lovers of all kinds. It’s surrounded by mountains and right next to Saguaro National Park, plus there are local lakes for swimming in the summer. If you’re more of a foodie, Tucson has some of the best Tex-Mex food in the country. For travel buffs, Tucson is just a few hours from California, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, and Mexico. If Tucson isn’t your place, don’t worry. We have Rain Bird offices around the world.
