The RNGD Experience

Our culture is built every day as we work side-by-side to break new ground in the construction business. But it’s also nice when we can step away from work and come together outside the day-to-day. Whether it’s a good old fashioned crawfish boil, family movie night, or our very special Renegade Fest, we’re constantly building a stronger culture by having a whole lot of fun together.

No matter what office you join, a career here is an opportunity to deliver innovative solutions that help transform the construction industry and leverage decades of experience to deliver customer success. We’ve built a culture that enables each employee to be their best for our customers. Here, employees grow professionally and personally as they develop expertise in a place where they are valued and empowered to create transformation with confidence.

Building leaders is one of the foundational pillars of our organization. We exist to help people realize their potential and achieve their dreams.

Leadership Development

We drive excellence through our Renegade Academy – our internal professional development program designed to foster individual and organizational learning. At RNGD, we champion the renegade spirit that looks to be challenged and pursues every avenue for growth, and we aim to facilitate the personal and professional evolution of all team members.

Health & Wellbeing

More than anything, our first concern is the physical and mental health of our team. That’s why we provide every RNGD employee with all the tools necessary to take good care of themselves. That means high-quality medical coverage, an on-site fitness center, mental health assistance, and enough paid time off to rest, recharge and return ready to do your best work. RNGD is nothing without its dedicated employees so we do everything to make sure they’re their best.

  • Provide purpose driven work

Giving Back

We care about the places we call home. Whether it’s New Orleans, Nashville, or the surrounding communities, we’re always finding ways to lend a hand through charitable giving and sweat equity. Through the Palmisano Foundation we create opportunities to improve the communities in which we work and uplift those who call those communities home. Whether directly with volunteer opportunities or from our financial contributions, every person at RNGD plays a role in building a better world.

The Core Value Awards

We believe that a healthy and productive corporate culture begins with a shared value system that supports and is aligned with the vision and strategic direction of the company. The Core Value Awards Program is an annual opportunity to recognize four employees who show exemplary individual achievement, contribution, and/or their performance aligns with the organization’s four foundational values.
