I worked at Gallup full-time (More than 8 years)

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 Management

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.

    I worked at Gallup part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Co-Workers
    Interesting Work
    Great Ideas and Concepts-that aren't always applied
    Stresses Life Balance-see above
    You can earn tuition payback, very cool program

    Cons

    Pay by production doesn't allow for managers pulling you on and off projects. You can literally wind up working for free at times.
    Management doesn't have any real respect for you as an interviewer, you are disposable. (they can be kind, which is not the same thing). The "mission" has long since been lost in the hustle. Pressure can be amazingly high for this type of job.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be absurd enough to offer a Q12 and then explain that the questions asked need to be "interpreted" differently. You've got to (in the interviewing center) get out there and mix with your workers. You can't bunch up in the management huddle at the ball game and be elitist, or you'll be percieved as clueless and out of touch. Make friends of your interviewers, and respect them, then they'll go above and beyond for you. Don't blow off their meetings or stare at your computer screen through a conversation with them and then expect them to go jump on the GIK grenade for you.
