I worked at Gallup full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The name GALLUP and the people who have been the real builders of it.

Cons

It is shameful to see the results of very bad leadership (Exec Comm). For the past two decades the respected and admired Gallup name was sent up the flagpole and a moat of arrogance was built around it. Sell whatever you can, as fast as you can and then be persecuted by operations for doing your job. I just left and it will be interesting to see how long it takes for my history to be rewritten and my contributions minimized.

Advice to Management

It has been easy to lead when up by 21 points at half, but when down and needing to come from behind -- current cocoon will be the downfall. New team before... well, we'll see. Good luck my friends.

    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.
