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

    Pros

    You can carve out your own space within this company. It can be a tricky path but if you contribute to some successful projects you can build your internal brand and thus your own business within the company. A lot will depend on the relationships you build with colleagues in control of budgets. Most people are paid a base salary along with bonus system similar to billing hours/commission.

    Cons

    Since virtually everyone is paid on a commission system, you are extremely reliant on the sales team who are the managing partners of the company. The integrity of some of the MP's can be questionable and they build their own fiefdoms within the organization.
    If you need any structure this is not the right fit. For example there is no time off policy...take as little or as much as you need. It sounds interesting at first but in practice is very difficult because you are always looking for work internally.

    This biggest worry of all it that senior leadership is not very strong, a clear example of the dangers of nepotism at a private company.

    I have been working at Gallup full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Gallup has good books that provides indepth insight on their range of products. Organizations can apply many of the tools and incorporate it to their existing culture.

    Cons

    When it comes to practising what they preach however, there is vast disparity. Consultants are too young to cut it. Some senior consultants rehash a lot of bumbo-jumbo, but no practical solutions. They appear to perform, but sometimes lost the plot. The impact provided by previous ex-consultants were significant and of a different level.

    Advice to Management

    One Singapore consultant boasts in LinkedIn that she was promoted from Associate to Consultant in just 7 months! She was literally fresh out of National Singapore University. And she is put in charge of a >$1 million project. Gallup is lucky to have such accomodating clients! But do not count on luck all the time. It's time you try to draw back the old colleagues who had left for greener pastures - at least on a part-time basis.
