I worked at Gallup full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Gallup has some of the best and smartest people you will ever meet..
Great work parties

Cons

Gallup is a dire place to work.. Dire. They routinely promise new employees the moon and then deliver 2,400 hours a year of creating power point decks. Want to do the job they promised you? Just wait a few months... and then a few more...and then what was it they promised you again? And how can they give you better assignments when you have such a bad attitude as to ask for better assignments? Before I resigned I would have told you I knew maybe 10 people who were really happy at Gallup. When I announced my resignation five of those people told me they were also looking for a job. People are exhausted, terribly unhappy, and afraid they will be fired if they speak openly, or take time off for oh, like Christmas. I have never started a job with such enthusiasm and ended with such disappointment.

Advice to Management

Read your own books and follow your own advice. Listen to your employees instead of terrorizing them.

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

    Pros

    Self-determination, incredible flexibility about when and where you do your work. Young people just out of grad school are given a lot of responsibility.

    Cons

    Underpaid for equivalent experience; what have you done for me lately; only expectation is the here-and-now. Sales people count the most and they have very short half lives.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in some consultants to help determine a future for the company. Some strategy would help.
