    Pros

    Great people, great product, industry leader

    Cons

    Since new management has come on board, all that has been done is to begin hiring anyone and everyone that the new CEO has ever worked with followed by those individuals hiring all their friends. The company has burned through massive amounts of capital and work hours and has produced nothing. The company has made multiple acquisitions for which their has been little to no payoff and one in particular that was almost certainly a buddy buddy buyout.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring all your friends and family. Promote from within and halt the massive hiring of VP's and SVP's that is currently spiraling out of control. Define a single direction for the company and pursue it and stop changing direction every few months.

    I have been working at Press Ganey as an intern

    Pros

    Everyone is very dedicated to their work and this leads to very accomplished workers who will do all they can to achieve success

    Cons

    It is a very corporate environment and can sometimes be very hectic and chaotic, not very laid back despite people being able to work from home

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emphasize communication between teams and offices -- lots of people are remote workers or are on the road a lot so it makes it that much more important that everyone communicates with each other

    Pros

    The greatest satisfaction comes from knowing you can make a difference. If you have a great idea, you can run with it with blessings and support!

    Cons

    There are lots of moving parts and it's tough sometimes to see all the inter-related issues and impact of decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue to push the envelope and innovate to better support our clients. Listen to them, respond to them, remember that we all work for them.

    I worked at Press Ganey full-time

    Pros

    The mission of the organization is meaningful and there are many great people that work there. People often like the work they do. Their core product is strong. Great clients. Good to average benefits.

    Cons

    The CEO is on a personal power trip and has surrounded himself with buddies who won't disagree with him. Many bad decisions by C-suite and no accountability. Buying companies without successfully integrating. The culture is going downhill. (Many reviews on Glassdoor are fake and written by marketing to improve ratings)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house at the top and focus on employees. A service organization is only as strong as its people. Don't ignore the talent drain - invest in employee development and culture, and you can turn things around.

    Pros

    Great front line staff; hard working, caring and intelligent. Wonderful CNO - love her focus regarding the importance of nursing on patient satisfaction. Get to work with great hospitals in various places across the nation.

    Cons

    Sr Management; more interested in promoting "their" way than making sure what is best for the organization. Too many egos. Not trustworthy - will make a decision one day and then reverse it a week later regardless of how it hurts any employees. Used to promote a small sample for surveying as the best methodology - now promote "every patient" as a way to charge more. Have lost a lot of good people which have been replaced by Sr Mgmt cronies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start thinking about the welfare of the company, its workers and clients more than your own personal welfare.

    We generally work with people that want to have a positive influence on healthcare and peoples lives. The pay is good and we get to be creative in how we work with clients and prospects. Leadership communicates well encourages problem solving.

    Cons

    Integration of firms we've acquired into one cohesive organization seems to be challenge...not sure why.

    Continue to enhance online analytics platform without increased pricing.

    I have been working at Press Ganey full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some departments/teams are quite flexible and reasonable about work life balance, including working from home when needed.

    Cons

    Some departments/teams have a culture of constant chaos, tension and pressure.

    The company's new executive team(s) over the past few years have made it very clear that they are not interested in investment or retention of staff level employees. Overall, the morale in my department has improved a bit but remains low.

    The company is extremely top-heavy with many executives paid highly to make the important decisions (or, more accurately, to argue with each other over decisions that never get made, or get made only to be reversed within months) and not enough staff to complete work. Executives are out of touch with the actual work going on at any given time.
