    I have been working at NewGround full-time

    Pros

    Newground is big on display, free shirts for staff and regular company events. Employee turn over is heavy except those not qualified for most other companies.

    Cons

    The company prides it self in financial design, but makes many many basic errors and does not fully provide customer value . There are many political silos making work even more difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Sell quality, in both design and construction not just talk. Experience is not a product, end result and buildings are...

    I worked at NewGround full-time

    Pros

    You might get lucky with a good team

    Cons

    The reviews shown don't reflect this company at all. There's a very old school and conservative atmosphere. There are a lot of office politics which results in everyone watching out for themselves. NewGround is not a place where you are encouraged or even welcomed to be yourself.

    I have been working at NewGround full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    NewGround has a great company culture. I have never experienced working in such a positive environment. The leadership sets the tone with a servant leadership attitude, everyone rolls up their sleeves to get the job done. Creativity is fostered, not squashed. If a mistake is made, it is pointed out, but not harped on over and over. Collaboration is the name of the game and everyone is willing to help. People at the company treat everyone as an equal partner, we all have our piece of the puzzle and each piece is important. I have never been made to feel foolish or unintelligent which is a big change from past employers that I have had. I hope to be a part of this organization for a very long time.

    Cons

    Typical human nature issues. Not everyone will get along with everyone all the time.

    Pros

    The folks at NewGround are awesome, some of the nicest people I have met in this industry. I think that everyone is treated with respect and it really is a family environment. I felt welcome the moment I walked through the door.

    Pros

    Family culture is what attracted me to NewGround, and it is what will keep me here.

    Cons

    The company is growing and back to the size it was before the downturn of '08, so there are some growing pains that accompany it, but the growth prospects outweigh these.

    Pros

    Strong focus on client development process and deliverables. Strong reputation in community.

    Cons

    They is very little to say here accept to perhaps the program seems under staffed at times. This may change in time as program grows.

    Pros

    This is my third week at NewGround and my on-boarding experience has been great. I have spent time meeting with multiple teams learning about NewGround's processes and what everyone's role is and how they contribute to the project's success. Within 2 days I was engaged in project work and have been embraced as a valuable team member. I was quickly set up with all the technology needed which was important to hit the ground running.

    NewGround welcomes you into their family-like culture and everyone I have met has a positive and helpful attitude.

    Cons

    So far my experience has been great. I don't have anything negative to say about NewGround.
