    I have been working at Press Ganey full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are great. There is a lot of flexibility to take time off if needed. Not much else I can say is a pro.

    Cons

    Management, inconsistencies across teams, lack of ability to move up or around in the company. Thoughts and ideas aren't too valued.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that are fit to be managers. Create some consistency throughout different teams. Work on promoting from within.

    Pros

    Great company if you work directly with the clients​.

    Cons

    Senior Management has extremely different visions for different departments within the company and only promotes the vision that is most​popular at that moment. Any department that doesn't deal directly with the client is not going to have any priority with any level of management.

    Advice to Management

    Decide which message you what to support and then show at least a little consistency in how you implement that message.

    Pros

    Can't think of any pros.

    Cons

    Before it was bought out by an equity firm, it was a very good culture. After the buyout, many employees were let go on a regular basis for no reasons given.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to appreciate the employees that support you.

    Pros

    Freedom
    Do what you want to get the job done, if you're productive you'll be noticed
    Great benefits
    Amazing vacation policy
    Great bonuses
    Ability to work remotely whenever need/want
    One of the best IT infrastructures in Northern IN
    Management was a pleasure to work for
    HR was really good once hired in, hiring process is slow and drawn out
    Strong financials

    Cons

    Very few but there is some laziness in department (see pro on production will bet you noticed)
    Execs are out of touch w their employees

    Advice to Management

    Execs need to stay more involved w their employees. CEO is very out of touch w employees for a smaller company (less than 2000 employees)

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

    Pros

    Ability to work from home with flexible hours.

    Cons

    The excellent benefits that entice employees to work there, such as immediate vacation, can rarely be used unless you are willing to "work the system" (call off sick and after all sick days are used, it will automatically count against your vacation). Pay is low and often misrepresented.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent and realistic with candidates and new hires regarding benefits and pay.

    Pros

    The company has been growing year after year since I was hired in 2003. Wonderful employees. PG carefully screens candidates for hire to ensure the fit the culture and fast pace of the company.

    Cons

    Worked very long weeks. I traveled quite a bit which required expensive preparation for each client visited. Press Ganey is constantly changing and it was a challenge to keep up with new products and new processes. Demanding of its employees - heavy workload to the point I felt overwhelmed much of the time.
