    Pros

    There are still a lot of great people working at PG. The benefits are very good and there is a lot of flexibility in my department.

    Cons

    With flexibility comes the expectation that you will be available at all hours if a client needs you. In reality, there is no reason a client should need an answer to a question after 5 on Christmas Eve. We are in the survey business, this is not life or death.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your employees like they are disposable. Tenure should mean something and you should try to keep employees. 2% raises each year do not keep up with 5% increases in daycare costs, for example. Being promoted with a 5% raise shouldn't prevent you from getting a merit increase for the next two years.

    I have been working at Press Ganey (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for - great health benefits, 401K, bonus potential and recognition. The company offers a nice array of opportunities for growth and development as well as tuition reimbursement. The company is large but the Executive Staff is highly engaged.

    Cons

    Due to the size of the organization, oftentimes virtual employees are not recognized as much as those in the corporate office.

    Advice to Management

    Continue working towards the mission of PG. Please be sure to train your managers before promoting them to management. It would be great to have mentors for each employee to ensure everyone is allowed the opportunity to succeed!

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    This company offers good, very specialized, experience in the short-term.

    Cons

    Likes to layoff entire departments at a time. A lot of people's jobs just up and disappear. Would not recommend for long-term career paths. The disappearance of departments also puts a strain on other departments.

    Advice to Management

    It is profitable to replace positions filled by people with technology, but I would advise such a high turnover rate among people at least be looked into.

    I worked at Press Ganey full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - A corner on their market.
    - Flexible hours,
    - Yearly Employee Bonuses.
    - Great HR support for employees.
    - Great Benefits
    - Employees care about each other.
    - Plenty of work to do.
    - Meaningful work.

    Cons

    - Aging data infrastructure.
    - Incredibly siloed departments.
    - Arbitrary management choices & deadlines
    - Corporate dog and pony show meetings that repeatedly rebrand existing initiatives.
    - Work is frequently thrown away
    - Work is frequently trapped in bureaucratic limbo, being both funded and not funded.
    - Employees don't have enough training, leading to crazy-quilt solutions that are not evaluated for the level of risk they present.
    - "Your desk is frequently on fire", (frequent choatic show-stopper emergencies that prevent the real work from getting done.)
    - Leadership very disconnected from employees.
    - Employee reviews follow a strange, abstract template that has very little meaning to all involved.

    Advice to Management

    You guys have your challenges like any other company, so I wish you well.. The Cons above are seen in various departments (not just one job type). There is so much potential for this company if the right choices are made. Hopefully this feedback will help you.

    My own advice:

    - Get realistic about your business processes.
    - Assimilate your disparate teams and their processes.
    - Set your process management people up for success, stop under-staffing them.
    - Listen to your employees, not just management. They are constantly telling you that the work needs to be correctly.
    - Invest in Quality Control. (outside of the survey distribution part of the business). This means pay more attention to long term.
    - Actually follow the Agile methodology the company promotes.
           - Don't set dates up in advance, get realistic estimates first.

    - Invest in training for your employees.
