    I have been working at Press Ganey as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and helpful. The work being done is helping real people improve their quality of life as they improve the experience at hospitals around the world. Feel like you are actually making a difference. The environment in the office is very easy going as long as you get your work done. Executives in our office are all very friendly and make the time to connect with everyone in the office which is very different than other companies from my experience.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems like with all the acquisitions that the goal is not clear to everyone but the communication has improved a lot with our CEO starting to send more emails that convey what the company is doing and why.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the communication and keep engaging your employees.

    Pros

    The people are great, the work-life balance is average.

    Cons

    The management team is the worst I have had to experience. In one of the offices, they make all employees except the C-suites use the back doors so they are not seen. The CEO is completely disconnected from all but about four employees, spending all of his time in a company paid jet. Nepotism is rampant and the family members hired and promoted are not qualified. All of the strong associates are quitting or job hunting because it feels like a sinking ship. The good reviews that you read on glassdoor about this company? Those are written because marketing has made people write them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit.

    I worked at Press Ganey full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.
