    Pros

    I have been provided with growth opportunities over my tenure with the organization, and within my group, innovation and group discussion keeps me constantly challenged.

    Cons

    communication can improve in this organization, while the message may get communicated to higher levels, it's not trickling down to ALL employees, and we end up hearing rumors and end up having to trust the rumors.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure communication is going all the way down. Maybe your direct reports aren't doing a good job of spreading the word.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules Honest leadership Relaxed environment Clean and remodeled offices

    Cons

    Salaries not competitive to market Not a lot of employee appreciation/events Outdated systems Mediocre bonus plan

    Advice to Management

    Bring your salaries up to market and make more effort to appreciate employees with special events, the morale boost could do a lot

    Pros

    The people that work for Newport is the #1 reason why I enjoy working for this company. We truly have good people that work here which makes coming into work everyday a great pleasure.

    Cons

    Too much matrix authorization to approve ideas, or to spend money.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees and the people that work for the company. It's people that get things done... just something to remember. While I understand that we need to watch what we spend it would be nice to see management give back to their employees. Such as providing upgraded vending machines, or more community outreach, or company activities that involves a mix of our employees.

    Pros

    Great learning environment and flexibility for exploratory research. The TAC is truly an amazing place to work as an intern. The scientists in that group are exceptional.

    Cons

    There are not many cons to working in the TAC as an intern. The major con is that the TAC is a small group of highly talented individuals and thus as an intern there is little chance of being offered a permanent position.

    Advice to Management

    The management of the TAC is very involved and makes everyone feel empowered and with a sense of ownership for the projects going on.

    Pros

    As someone just starting my career in recruiting, I couldn’t have been happier with the onboarding program at The Newport Group, or the continuous support from the management team. They provide in-depth and ongoing training that helps to prepare you for just about anything – and in this business, you need to be prepared for everything. It’s a very fun and relaxed work environment, where the practice leads and senior management are invested in their employees’ success, and it’s definitely a “work hard, play hard” type of culture. I think the best part of working here is having the freedom to be myself in this business/role. They aren't breeding a bunch of robots. Though they’re fairly strict about metrics and call time, they encourage creativity and individuality in the process, and allow you to build on their training and mold it to fit your style, which helps you get comfortable and has helped me succeed here.

    Cons

    None that come to mind

    Advice to Management

    My best advice is to continue fostering the growth of their employees and staying tapped-in to thriving markets.

    Pros

    Newport is involved in many different industries, and offers diverse opportunities for different disciplines. The leadership is always looking toward future growth and expansion.

    Cons

    Since some of the markets Newport serves are cyclical or volatile, some divisions or positions can be vulnerable to market trends.

    Pros

    Stable company, many long term employees. In general treats employees well. Compensation, benefits and other perks are good for industry peers. I recommend working for Newport.

    Cons

    Communication throughout the organization sometimes lacking. Company culture is very scattered throughout the organization based upon what location you are working at.

    Pros

    Newport is a large corporation which crosses over a number of technologies. For a technical professional is present a good deal of opportunity.

    Cons

    Because Newport has been around for so long and has grown through acquisition it sometimes feels less like a cohesive team.

    Advice to Management

    Some portion of management seems resistant to change which for a growing company in a technical field seems counter intuitive.
