Used to be good...

It used to be a great company with great work life balance. It has become a toxic working environment after bought out by MKS two years ago. Management only cares about profit.

Division closed down

The division of Newport I worked in is no longer in business. It originated as a private small business. Although the job was demanding, the owners had a way to make you feel appreciated and like family.

Keep your sanity

I have nothing good to say about this company.Very poor work load organization,cutthroat management, lowest of the low employee moral.I would advise every single person that is even considering of working for this company not to step a foot there because it's going to be huge waste of your time and especially your health...NOT WORTH IT!

Poor Management and HR

Talent retention is horrible. When a technician publicly asked HR how to get promoted to the next level, he was told to find another job. Many capable and talented technicians, and engineers, have started to leave en mass due to complaints about poor compensation and no guidance on levels/ratings.


Relaxed work schedule, can choose to come in early to avoid traffic.


Poor pay and no promotions.

Nice place to work

Newport / MKS is a nice place to work. Good benefits. Relaxed atmosphere, for the most part. Unfortunately, its understaffed and a lot of the people are underpaid.


Good benefits

Great place and people

I had a great experience working at Newport Construction. I was the foreman of a paving crew and all the guys I worked with were hard working, dedicated, and witty.

Challenging work

Typical coating house good to employees as long as you follow the rules. Technology kept you interested in the processes which helped make the time at work pass quickly.

Rlaxed but productive environment

Relaxed work environment. My day consisted of inspecting parts and finished products as well as pulling orders and delivering them to clients. Nice people that always made sure to let everybody know what was the task at hand.

Great place to work, with new changes coming

I enjoyed working at the company a lot, it was originally a lot of learning opportunities. Management is slow to change and doesn't see what the problems are.

My main duties at Newport was processing commission, sales tax for 18 states, and process month end journal entries as well as reconciliation. I enjoy working with the people there.

It was ok

Work was not hard, my direct manage was awesome but the ones above him were not. 3 shift operation and if anything ever went wrong it would always be blamed on the off shifts

Great place to work at times.

Great place to work at times. Company acquired last year and many changes have taken place and continue to take place. I,m ready to move on to bigger and better for my own growth and development.

Management genuinely cares about the advancement of it's employees. Free lunches and open PTO make it for a excellent place of employment. Salary is quite low though. Will be finding other employment if salary does not increase with the cost of living in Austin
