    I have been working at Gallup full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you work hard and become good at getting people to say yes you can make good money. They have decent benefits and work environment is great. It is a great company if you have to balance school and/or other life challenges.

    Cons

    If you can not sit in a desk for 8 hours a day and deal with people on the phones it is not the job for you. Also there is no where for you to move up no matter how successful you are, they are not a horizontal company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers need to be more familiar with all the ins and outs for on the phone problems and issues.

    Pros

    -Good pay
    -Can have a longer than 30 minute lunch

    Cons

    -Management is condescending, manipulative, and just overall awful
    -The people you work with are mostly all awful, some good eggs, most people are rotten.
    -While pay is good, it's all commission after two months. If no one answers the phone, you get nothing.
    -While you can have a longer lunch, you are also expected to make up whatever time past 15 minutes up before you leave.
    -If you're sick, you will most likely get fired because they expect you to be there every day and then some and you have to work at least 20 hours no matter what. Vacations, sick days, errands, all unheard of to this company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The absolute worst company I've ever worked for, hire new management.

    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

    "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.

    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.

    Family Run company

    Pros

    Child care available onsite. Fun events happening all the time.

    Cons

    If you make right connections with the right families who own this business you can go places. Its a company always trying to become 1 billion company. Management is biased towards relatives and friends working in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't encourage more sycophancy.

    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.
