    I have been working at Press Ganey

    Pros

    No longer simply the leading "survey company" Press Ganey is now considered a formidable thought leader in the industry having recruited such well respected experts as Dr. Tom Lee and Dr.Jim Merlino. Through development or M&A Press Ganey is making significant investments in strategic solutions that matter to clients. It's personally gratifying to meet with Senior Leaders at client organizations who see us as providing solutions, not just products

    Cons

    Lots of change-new colleagues,new Org structures,etc...
     It sometimes takes a while to find out who to go to for what as it's constantly evolving. But usually it results in a pleasant surprise as you are introduced to a new Subject Matter Expert or find out that something that a client needs is already under development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Schedule periodic "town halls" with just the RD's/ Frontline staff.
    We're the boots on the ground and many of us have been in healthcare a pretty long time and can provide strategic, direct feedback from client Sr. Leaders.

    I have been working at Press Ganey

    Pros

    Press Ganey cares about patients - which is evident in our Compassionate Connected Care model. We are about reduction of suffering. I work with people who are mission-driven - who are energized by this vision and want to make a difference in the world - and with our clients/partners. People have certain ideas about consulting companies - and that is NOT us.

    Cons

    You had better be comfortable with change - and about stepping up to express your opinions. I say this especially to our Morehead colleagues. Get over it - you are Press Ganey now and we are so happy to have you! Apply what you know about culture to help us be better as a company. Your opinion and thoughts are invaluable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. It is making a difference.

    Thanks for your thoughtful review. And I agree, we value the opinions of our (former) Morehead colleagues in helping us to employ best practices to strengthen employee engagement.

    Investing in the Future.

    I have been working at Press Ganey full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Press Ganey continues to invest in the future of their products and their people. The 3 million dollar investment in the Operation's facility in South Bend was timely and well received. This new facility gives the Operation's Team plenty of room for growth and the stability of staying in South Bend. The Information Technology Team is continually enhancing our products and introducing new technology to help the Operation's team become more efficient. This is all needed because the Sale's Team continues to win and win big in our space.

    Cons

    The major hurdles we face are keeping up with the Government mandates on the CAHPS products, while rolling out enhancements for our other products. They are both fighting for the same resources at the same time, which then requires our team to put in long hours to accomplish all tasks. This effort is not always recognized by Senior Leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dedicate more resources to our CAHPS effort. This will allow others to concentrate on other parts of our business.

    Pros

    The people at Press Ganey are amazing. They are highly motivated, passionate about our clients, and focused on bringing about positive change in the health care industry. The culture promotes teamwork and there is always a positive, highly charged energy in every office.

    Cons

    The pace of work is very fast, which can prove challenging, as Press Ganey looks to shape the future of the patient experience in health care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Associates at all levels have great ideas and varying perspectives. Finding time to talk with individuals across departments and responsibilities can prove insightful and offer a fresh look into the company and our work.

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

    Pros

    Our senior executive team is extremely involved with our clients, and they are investing in the right places to ensure that we are positioned at the market leader. Since Pat Ryan has joined Press Ganey, we have solidified our thought leadership, and have clarified our mission - which is to partner with health care organizations to improve the patient experience. The pay is great, the work is meaningful, and we have fun while we are doing it.

    Cons

    There is a strong focus on the bottom line. We have to justify all expenses - which is a good thing, but it means there is some red tape to jump through.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to the clients! Keep listening to the employees!

    Making an Impact on Healthcare alongside talented individuals

    I have been working at Press Ganey full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Since my first day working at Press Ganey, I've been blown away by the friendliness and dedication of my colleagues. While we have experienced tremendous growth, I continue to come to work excited each day both because of our mission (giving patients a voice in healthcare) and because of the committed and insanely talented people I get to partner with on that mission every day.

    Cons

    You have to be open to change, and working in a fast-paced environment. Healthcare as an industry is ever changing, and we are trying to stay ahead, so be prepared!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to associates, take the employee feedback seriously, and remain transparent.

    An innovative industry leader with ample opportunity to advance

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    *Great company culture (at South Bend headquarters, as well as auxillary offices)
    *I have been granted numerous opportunities to advance throughout my career at PG
    *We are by far the industry leader, so there is much pride in working for the best
    *We are making considerable investment in technology used for internal operations
    *The benefits are better than those of most employers in the South Bend area
    *Internal communications have greatly improved over the past few years, and will continue to trend that way.
    *Our leadership team is very capable and savvy

    Cons

    *To be successful, you must be willing to work many more than the standard 40 hour work week. However, when you're passionate about the corporate mission, and you know your hard work will be recognized, the benefit is worth the cost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Continue the excellent work in representing Press Ganey in the marketplace. When Pat Ryan, Joe Greskoviak, Dr. Lee, and other C-Suite executives visit clients, they put the company's best foot forward and build tremendous credibility and it has amounted to some amazing closed deals. Keep forging onward in the marketplace and we will continue to deliver optimal customer service and operational excellence.

    I have been working at Press Ganey full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Highly motivated associates who care about each other and the work they're doing every day. Opportunity to be involved with challenging, innovative initiatives. Leadership makes a real effort to be transparent and communicate changes. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    In the past there have been limited opportunities (at least in my department) for training and professional development. I think that has started to change the second half of this year and I'd like to see continued focus on this area - internal and external learning opportunities for all associates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you've focused on this year - listening to associate feedback and making changes, recognizing accomplishments and communicating our progress today and our vision for tomorrow.

    Pros

    Company is mobilized around mission to improve healthcare. We know what our goals are and what we are working towards as a team. A lot of positive momentum with clients, growing business and expanding into new markets. Inspiring management team, supportive managers, flexible schedules/work-life balance, overall happy I made the move to this company.

    Cons

    There is opportunity in change and we serve a rapidly changing industry. At the same time, change is hard for some employees to accept. Senior management communication around these changes has improved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up current positive momentum, continue to communicate to all employees regarding company vision and anticipated changes when possible.
