I worked at Gallup full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
"Great place to develop entrepreneurial skills."Cons
Lots of drama and full of managers that don't know what they are doing. They offer no opportunity to advance within the organization. They preach recognition and employee engagement with tooting horns, but they do not know how to practice the recognition properly or fix employee engagement issues. If your go-to doesn't have your back, your time at Gallup won't last long. The culture there is very misleading. They want everyone to put on a happy face and pretend that everything is perfect, which by the way is not, and people should know that.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Teach your Go-To's how to manage a team properly. If you can't get them to manage teams accordingly, then get rid of them. They often put the problem on someone else b/c they fear losing there job if they don't . Some of the managers have been there far to long and you need to restructure your management.
After seeing how some of the managers there operate, I'm not sure how they got into the role they are in. It takes a special person to manage people and not all have the ability or knack to do it, even if they have been there for 20 years doesn't mean they are good managers.
Have a more clear picture on time off. The erroneous hours that you require of salaried employees is quite ridiculous. You preach work/life balance, but when your employees are constantly worried about hitting the minimum hours, you make it difficult to maintain that work life balance. Why track hours if you are salaried? My thought is if you get your job done in less time required, then why make a deal of hitting your hours. Make a deal of it with individuals that are not performing at a high level and put them on performance plans.
Lastly, listen to your employees and help them resolve issues. This is one area where your company is very weak. Resolving issues is part of the managerial role and part of being an employer, but when you have managers that don't know how to or address the issues at hand, then you have someone that is in the wrong role.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
