    Pros

    Culture, management, flexible hours, pay is all great. Take advantage of the guaranteed pay in the beginning. You can also do anything in between calls which is nice.

    Cons

    Sitting at a desk on the phone for the whole day. Job can be difficult or annoying at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more day-work if possible

    Pros

    Excellent building and work spaces. Wonderful perks like a print shop, on-site gym with trainers, cafe, coffee, and more.

    Cons

    In 2009 they raised hour expectations by 10% without change in pay. At times they do not seem to eat their own "dog food". "Grow horizontally for higher pay"...There are glass ceilings for pay, no matter how much extra work or complexity of work you take on, once you hit the cap, that is it. Instead of consulting the IT teams for realistic deadlines, the deadlines seem to come out of thin air and employees work themselves sick to meet them. You have to stand up for yourself and force reasonable work hours or you will be swept away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It feels that the Exec management is getting ready to retire and cash out, leaving a husk of a company behind.

    Pros

    Knowledge gained in training helps tremendously, but ultimately you'll find your niche. The flexibility is great and the extra pay for efficiency is a nice incentive.

    Cons

    Can be overwhelming and demotivating on off-days. Accumulation of hours needed to make up can be stressful, especially during mid-terms and finals, so plan accordingly.

    Pros

    Create your own schedule, managers are friendly and very approachable, coworkers are very nice and have similar goals/personalities, tons of bonuses just for doing your job.

    Cons

    No possibilities for promotion. They treat employees in the company looking to advance their career just as they would any other job candidate. The job can get taxing at time just sitting at a desk and doing surveys all night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward good work with more responsibility, not just more pay for that pay period. If you have a good employee on your hands, promote them or lose them.

    Pros

    flexible work schedule and competitve pay. There are monthly forums and we get awarded for different things that make you feel like they care.

    Cons

    Dealing with people who really don’t want to talk to you every day can be frustrating and disheartening. Sometimes after work you feel like you just got jumped into a gang because as easy as the job is.. it’s also hard when people try you every day.

    Pros

    Decent benefits
    onsite gym
    wellness activities
    onsite credit union
    employees really care for each other
    Very bright employees

    Cons

    Annual hour requirement is crazy high.
    IT very dis-organized, little clear direction, or a direction that regularly changes.
    Spend years on a major strategy only to throw it away
    Instead of build once and reuse, it's rebuild, rebuild, rebuild. Even buying new software that does the same thing as software we already own, but is under-utilized or not implemented.
    Poor work/life balance
    Not a lot of room for upward growth. Very flat company.
    No vacation.. (Seriously). Any time you take off has to be made up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to learn to practice what they preach. We tell other companies how to run their businesses, but we don't seem to follow that same advise. We demand crazy high work hours, always "on" mentality.

    I worked at Gallup part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great pay for the type of work and opportunities to make quite a bit of money. Given lots of opportunities to work on different types of work that will allow you to find something that fits your interests typically.

    Cons

    Given that market research in itself is somewhat unpredictable in regards to scheduling and completion rate, sometimes difficult to anticipate paychecks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep on doing what you do, the industry is tough.

    Former Employee - Consumer Interviewer in Omaha, NE
    Former Employee - Consumer Interviewer in Omaha, NE

    I worked at Gallup full-time

    Pros

    Once you pass the online personality profile and prove yourself personable, persuasive, performance-driven (pick any pair, at least) but always polite, on the phone, you're in and you can make decent money - even good money for this kind of work - especially when you consider that you aren't asking people to buy anything, just give their opinions.
    The Gallup name still carries enough good will that some people will talk to you for the name alone.
    Flexible hours.
    Tuition assistance program.
    The transgressions for which an interviewer can be terminated are very clear and usually easy to avoid. Most of the interviewers I know who have been fired knew they deserved it.
    A clear path is provided for you as an interviewer to improve your pay scale and bonuses do help.
    There is a chance for promotion to management positions or a place in the corporate office, especially if you're an attractive, young, female UN Lincoln graduate or related to someone in the inner circle (in which case, you aren't reading this anyway).
     If you perform well and act like you want to participate in the culture - and culture is EVERYTHING here - they'll make it easy for you to continue. Even if you don't perform well right away, they'll try to help you improve - and some people do. But some people don't or can't or won't. If you can not make yourself fit in, they will make it easy for you to decide to leave (but do try to stay at least six months so you can list them on your resume without fearing they'll tell prospective employers that you are not eligible for re-hire).

    Cons

    You must be willing to learn how to deal with rejection and to speak politely and effectively with rude and/or stupid respondents. This type of work is not for everyone.
    Your success will be determined largely by your willingness to submit to a Borg-like "tribal" culture. They expect you to love them without reserve while they reserve the right to terminate you at will.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very few of us have been given reason to believe we belong to your "tribe." Sure, it sounds cool but please, be real.
