Not the best benefits, and not many healthy choices in the cafeteria, but great in every other regard.

Pros

work/life balance, culture/values, decent money for the Midwest, full gym, beautiful campus

benefits, food selection, difficult interviews

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend the few extra dollars for better benefits- having some of the worst around isn't worth saving a buck.

    Gallup mission is to "help people be heard." We just don't want to hear yours at work.That would be negative.

    Pros

    Flexible Work Schedule
    Paid for production
    Bonus and Incentives
    Beautiful Work Environment
    College Reimbursement

    Cons

    Never feeling like you can enjoy a holiday. Always being pressured to work the hours.
    Lack of freedom to be honest about issues in the work environment. All very superficial.
    Pressure to work more hours without appropriate bonus or compensation.
    Value as a person is in performance rather than as a human being.
    Management team that does not respect the feedback of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Q12 is mere lip service than reality. There is extreme defensiveness with the management team to hear the feedback that is necessary to execute change and growth. Risking and speaking truthfully can come at a great cost to an employee. Maybe that technique works well at the high school or college level but certainly not at the career level. It just reveals the lack of maturity at the management level.

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Omaha, NE

    I worked at Gallup full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility. Child care on site that is high quality. Great co-workers for the most part who are dedicated and smart.

    Cons

    1. The expectation of working a minimum of 2,300 hours a year. This comes out to over 44 hours a week 52 weeks of the year. For people who are paid on profitability, working so many hours cuts into the profitability because you are adding cost to the projects on which you work. So the more you work, the less you actually get paid. 2. THE FAMILY. The underqualified son and daughters of one of the founders have taken their father's legacy and driven it into the ground. As one of my co-workers so aptly said years ago - blood is thicker than talent. They play favorites at every turn. Negativity in any form is a kiss of death to your career there. If telling the truth is preceived as negative in any way, you are driven out. 3. They do not treat employees in the same manner that they preach to their clients. 4. Q12, their signature product for employee development, is a sham. It does not measure employee emgagement as they claim, it merely measures management style. it's reliability is also suspect due to so few questions. It's a statistical mess and an embarrassment to present to clients. 5. The last year I worked there my salary was cut 30% due to a "new pay plan" even though I was producing the same as I had the year before. 6. It's a sweat shop. Work, work, work. Productivity is king and can never end. 7. Their selection criteria for employment is nearly impossible to meet. A person can be performing a job perfectly, but if they cannot pass the test for that job, they cannot continue in it even though their performance is known and that is what the test is supposed to predict. Ass backwards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire an entirely new upper management team to clean the place up and live up to the vision of Don Clifton and the Gallup brothers. Honor their legacy by getting out of the way.
