I worked at Gallup as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Overall the people are smart and pleasant to be around. In the Chicago office, most people work from 9am-5:30pm with little travel, which is very rare within the consulting industry.

Cons

The company hasn't experienced as much growth as a lot of other consulting firms. You can receive outstanding performance reviews without being rewarded in compensation/bonuses/job security. The firm feels slightly "cult-like", and at times employees aggressively push their research and strength-based consulting products onto other employees and clients.

Advice to Management

Carefully examine employee incentives to ensure they are aligned with performance.

    I worked at Gallup part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good job for night owls and people with no social life. You'll get a paycheck. They will hire pretty much anyone that has a pulse and no strong accent.

    Cons

    Forced social events that are unpaid, shady pay structure that pretty much assures you will never get a bonus or even the $9.75 they say they will pay you. A call center filled with teenagers who are there to socialize and, for some reason, people who think watching TV at work is acceptable. Their idea of a reward is getting your own desk. Everything seems to be based on popularity rather than the type of work you do.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring any idiot who actually shows up to the group interview.

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

    Pros

    There were some very bright and enjoyable people in the Gallup talent pool during the time I worked there as an Engagement Manager. I have heard that the Irvine, CA office is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Very few people stick at Gallup. Almost nobody from my Consocciates class still works at the company. The DC office is rife with bad politics. There are two sets of rules, one for favored, tenured employees and another for the rest of the world. Unfortunately, it isn't presented that way... more like you can chart your own career, be your best authentic self, succeed on your terms and work a flexible schedule. All of this is complete rubbish and will get you canned faster than you can say 'fired'. DC was like a revolving door with long term senior management and the rest of us, who were minions.

    Advice to Management

    I don't believe that Gallup Senior Management cares what any employee has to say. Gallup preaches employee engagement, but they don't practice it. Please read your own publications and adhere to your own recommended best practices.
