Pros

Good entry level job. Veterans are usually willing to teach you the ropes. Education reimbursement.

Cons

Lack of opportunity for advancement. Employees stay in their positions for years which leaves no room for people underneath them to move up. Very little communication with upper management except for the annual review. No job security.

Advice to Management

Don't let your employees stagnate in their positions for years on end. This blocks new people from coming onboard and makes it unlikely for fresh ideas to be brought in.

    I have been working at Newport full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    401k match is great. The company is smaller so you get to know everyone. Generally good people.

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible and the is almost no room for advancement. When you do get promoted they limit any pay raise to 5% rather than what the new title should pay. Pay seems below market average for all positions I held.

    Advice to Management

    Look up employee effectiveness and work on it.

    I have been working at Newport full-time (More than a year)

    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.
