    Pros

    Nice campus and office area's - some good co-workers to work with. Other than that it was expected that you either were buddies with somebody higher up or you will get poor performance reviews.

    Cons

    Arrogant HR and management. My friend with over 20 years of experience in a particular I.T. area was told that although he had great experience company policy prohibits him from even being interviewed and to never apply for a position again without a 4 yr degree. Are you kidding me what good is a 4 year degree achieved 30 years ago compared to 20 years of experience?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of corporate micro management attitudes and old boy network - change the hiring process to accept years of experience or a degree like most companies. It borders on age discrimination. I worked on a highly technical team of 20 individuals at another company and everybody was very good at the job - maybe 5 actually had a 4 year degree.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
