I wouldn't recommend starting at the root directory. You will waste a lot of time doing it that way. Searching for group owned files in /proc, /sys, /mnt or /dev isn't what you want to do. Excluding certain directories can make the command too complicated.
You could use a form like:
find /home /tmp /var /usr ...
instead to apply it on directories that you know have the group's files.
Also, use su or sudo instead, and log in as a normal user. It is a good habit to get into. (And enforced if you have Ubuntu)
