Press Ganey – Why Work For Us?

Press Ganey Associates was co-founded by two Notre Dame Professors, Dr. Irwin Press and Dr. Rod Ganey in 1985. Dr. Press, a professor of medical anthropology, took a unique interest in understanding the patient experience and became an expert within the field. Recognizing the need to systematically and scientifically measure patient satisfaction, Dr. Press joined forces with Dr. Rod Ganey, an expert in statistics. The two developed a survey and together, they founded Press Ganey.
While remaining faithful to our founders’ mission, we are again transforming health care as we redefine the patient experience and forge the path to allow the voice of every patient to be heard. Our team is constantly innovating and collaborating to ensure we push the boundaries of our industry to the next level. The majority of these innovative team members work at one of our five offices, located in Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Kansas City and South Bend; however, we do employ offsite associates for specific positions. We invite you to learn more about our  executive team.
To further advance the science of improving patient care, Press Ganey established the  Institute for Innovation, an independent, nonprofit research collaborative. The Institute brings together prominent health care leaders from across the industry to identify aspects of patient care that would benefit from improvement and to develop solutions that will positively affect experiences and outcomes.

Press Ganey has grown and evolved significantly over the past few years. But what hasn’t changed is the fact that this company has always had a strong mission to help clients improve the care they provide to patients. People work here because they are motivated by doing meaningful work.

In 2013, with the help of our associates, we revisited our mission, vision, and values, and adapted it to better reflect who we are now, as well as who we will be in the future. Formalizing our new mission, vision and values builds on our company’s strong foundation, acknowledges our associates’ contributions to our success, and provides strategies for future growth. Additionally, in 2014, we piloted a successful corporate mentoring program, so we are currently implementing the program across the company in second quarter 2015.

Through our service and performance programs, we recognize the commitment our associates bring to work every day. Our core values reflect the shared values that influence everything our organization does:

  • We listen. We learn. We lead.
  • We care about each other and foster collaboration.
  • We commit to excellent service and are passionate about our work.
  • We act with integrity and hold ourselves accountable.
  • We communicate with transparency.
  • We are innovative thinkers.

Our team members also enjoy collaborating outside of the office and having some fun! Here are a few of the opportunities Press Ganey provides to connect with colleagues and give back to the community:

  • Annual community service day
  • Charity runs/walks
  • Summer picnics
  • Office celebrations and happy hours
  • Sporting events
  • Team retreats and dinners

We work hard to provide a comprehensive suite of benefits to offer quality, affordable options for all associates.

  • Our health insurance provides medical, prescription drug, vision and dental coverage.
  • Paid leave includes vacations, sick leave and personal days.
  • Flexible spending accounts enable associates to use pre-tax dollars for non-reimbursable medical and dependent care expenses.
  • Life and disability insurance (short-term and long-term) is paid by Press Ganey.
  • Profit sharing and 401(k) programs (with employer matching) allow associates to build financial security.
  • Tuition assistance gives associates the opportunity to continue their education and improve their skills and knowledge.
  • Employee assistance, including counseling and other resources, supports associates and their families and helps them maintain a healthy work/life balance.
  • We continue to expand our corporate wellness program to promote a healthy culture. Press Ganey offers incentives for taking a well-being assessment and biometric screening, for seeking preventive care, and completing a lifestyle program, such as a tobacco cessation program.

At Press Ganey, we have a longstanding tradition of measuring our associates' satisfaction and engagement and using insights from the survey to continually improve our organization. We are proud to share the outstanding results of our 2014 Associate Partnership Survey!

Overall, we reached an all-time high participation of 96%, and even more noteworthy, we saw our engagement/satisfaction rates improve across all functional areas and within each category from 2013 to 2014. For example, we received “off the charts” ratings for meaningful work, quality products and services, collaboration with colleagues and relationships with direct managers. Also, we received more than 2,400 written comments, and our CEO, Pat Ryan, personally read every one.

Our associates continue to provide honest and constructive feedback and leadership continues to act on that feedback; a winning combination for making Press Ganey a great place to work!

Press Ganey is changing the dialogue in the health care industry to help organizations achieve patient-centered care by focusing on reducing suffering to drive greater engagement and better outcomes. As we continue to innovate, we are building actionable services to address patient suffering and ultimately deliver a better patient experience. Clients, including leadership, managers and clinicians, embrace this mission as it resonates with them as their driving reason for being in health care.

We invite you to review our Thought Leadership articles and white papers to gain a better understanding of how we are partnering with health care organizations to transform the patient experience.

    I have been working at Press Ganey full-time


    The company is Mission Driven, focused on working with our clients to transform the way care is delivered to patients and families and supporting care givers.
    The company is constantly innovating, challenging us all to be disruptive and ensure we are leading the industry.
    The company supports it’s associates, numerous people who have had personal issues are quietly supporter, we support multiple charities including giving a day of service to all our communities and recently deidicated two Nicu rooms to our local hospital.
    The company has absorbed health benefit increases for 6 years.... merit increses have taken place for the last 6 years, the company pays close attention to non-executive positions and appreciates the value of these decision to their associate.
    Transparency- you can email the CEO and he’ll respond.
    Investment- are IT budget and spending on our team has tripled in recent years
    Many promotions from manages a tight budget and has never had a layoff in my many years


    It’s fast paced if you dont like change and to be challenged this place isnt for you. It’s a demanding work enviroment and the rate of change in healthcare is’s a cycle of innovation and self disruption, can be fun can be daunting! Company manages a tight budget, I’d always like more!

    Advice to Management

    It’s a great place to work, as we keep growing make sure we dont lose the culture that we’ve created. Keep the communication coming! Give us more Pizza.

    Background check
    Drug test
    My only complaint was the company they used for the background check. They called me over 10 times to ask the exact same question. They also harassed my references (who were professionals) and made me look bad to my references.
