    Disappointing

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Client Services in Washington, DC
    Former Employee - Client Services in Washington, DC

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

    Pros

    * Great concepts
    * Positions itself well given its small size and limited scope of ability
    * People do really seem to care about the company and its success

    Cons

    * Complete disconnect between concepts and practice - so sad but true
    * Managers have no experience as managers or practitioners - they just happened to do well on a test and are suddenly put in charge of a large team of much more seasoned staff
    * Completely closed to feedback and criticism - if you indicate you are anything less than fully "engaged" or criticize in any way then look out
    * Salary is terrible and health insurance is nearly non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Open your minds to the possibility that you don't know everything
    * Apply your own concepts - is the way you implement the science how you would advise clients to do so? I highly doubt it.
    * Listen to your employees - they have great insights into the business but will never tell you since they are afraid of getting fired.

    Pros

    Name recognition and history. Some interesting research.

    Cons

    - I quickly realized that Gallup was a minor (very minor) league player pretending it was competing in the majors. It likes to think it can compete with McKinsey, BCG, etc. but it simply can't..

    - Management is a joke. What serious consulting firm is run as a family business? Office and regional managers are toadies who exist to stroke them egos of the family. The individual who ran our office (and division) was so full of himself that he did not realize how much contempt his staff held him in.

    - The pay and benefits are appaling for a company that believes it is a major player.

    - I consider my time at Gallup a lost year (actually less than a year).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real management.
