    I worked at Gallup part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you work here a certain period of time they will help pay for your school. If you meet quota pay is decent. It's a good work environment. All the management and people that have been there awhile are genuinely happy about their job.

    Cons

    You have to get all your hours in every week. It's hard to get time off. Depending on the survey you're on you could have a lot of people yell at you. You have to meet quota or you'll lose your job.

    Pros

    Some very talented and dedicated people

    Cons

    Overuse of recognition to the point it is now meaningless. More interested in profit over people. Poor benefits. Not sure what management does.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back at least a little bit to what Gallup used to be.

    A call center is still a call center

    I worked at Gallup full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Their strengths-based analysis is actually a lot more than just company lingo. The theories and practical uses of the Clifton StrengthsFinder may well be the most valuable thing to take with you from this job.

    Cons

    The hiring methods are just as problematic as they are helpful. Jobs are also assigned by nepotism at least as much at Gallup as at other major corporations. While it varies from one call center supervisor to another, in general they could walk the talk a bit more and implement their own strengths-based management a bit more. Quota adjustment practices (as well as others) are shady at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The people in a call center are your frontline. They work a position that is very draining in a personal way. It could be argued that they have both the hardest and most necessary job. They need and deserve a special kind of support. The fact that an interviewer can technically be fired at any moment for any mistake however minor does not create a sense of job security. The pay scale is up at the top of the call center world, but realistically it is still hard to do more than live paycheck to paycheck. There isn't nearly as much opportunity for moving within the company as I had hoped, and it is not as easily done as it is said to be. In general, more transparency would go a long way.

    Pros

    Gallup has a very strong culture based on its science and research and a powerful mission. It is very stimulating intellectually with no shortage of new things to learn or explore. Diversity is increasing dramatically with international hires and offices.

    Cons

    Based on the talent model, it is tough for some to switch roles or career paths midstream. Sometimes it is risky even to have the conversation unless you already know you are a fit.
