  4. "Dissappointing"

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    City access, great ideas, nice space

    Cons

    No follow-thru. Small Chicago team with zero communication, it was like being on an island. Big ideas, with no follow thru, image is very important, but too much turn over to enact. Zero adversity, no blacks, Asians or Hispanics, or if so less than 10% for company of this size, shameful!! Lousy 401k match

    Advice to Management

    Walk the walk!

    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...

    Keep up the GREAT work and thank YOU.

    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...
