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

    Pros

    Coming to work here at NewGround thus far has been amazing. Us as individuals come to work, spend the majority of our time at work with our coworkers, away from our family; it is important that we feel like a family. And that's how I feel. We are family......

    Cons

    There are absolutely none, NewGround has made me feel like family...

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the GREAT work and thank YOU.

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

    Pros

    I feel extremely excited to happy to come to work every day. Each employee has an incredibly strong work ethic and integrity and this translates well because everyone really cares about what the company is accomplishing. The company is constantly updating itself and keeps itself relevant in its marketplace. The work environment is extremely modern and upper management engages with the employees.

    Cons

    In my opinion, there are no downsides to working at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the compassion and good work.

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

    Pros

    I had the best hiring and welcoming experience!

    During the hiring process Dennis L. was very informative and to the point on the project needs and the open position. He was very professional and was able to connect me with the local Team and also arranged a site visit. All benefits questions were answer in a timely matter.

    On my first day, all my tools (computer, phone, emails, etc) were set up and ready.

    As a new hire, I had to go thru the NewGround team introductory videos about the company. I think this was a great approach to introduce new hires to the Team and vision of the company.

    Although I work thousands of miles away from the NewGround Headquarters, the Team’s warmth welcome reflected NewGround exceptional culture.

    Cons

    The time zone for initial set up was a little challenging but no cons during the hiring and welcome process.

    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.
