    I have been working at Gallup full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great remuneration packages, benefits, work-life flexibility and manager-employee relation. Gallup creates a significantly positive impact on its customers as well as its employees. Supportive environment where motivation is plenty and successes are applauded globally. Truly a benchmark for other organisations!

    Cons

    The depth of work and services offered classify as Intellectual Property, Analytics and Education. This involves a substantial, gradual learning of the entirety of what Gallup does and requires patience. Slow and Steady wins the race at Gallup!

    I worked at Gallup full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good learning opportunities. Good science, and IP.

    Cons

    Total internal dysfunction, where people spend most of their day navigating the drama and uncertainty while fighting to manage their threat state caused by the disconnect between the espoused values and teachings and the experienced internal reality. The environment borders on abuse where people need to petition for their value and fight for fairness in the workplace. There is not a culture of acknowledgement or respect...

    Pros

    Best culture I have ever experienced at any workplace, excellent work life balance, great rewards, recognition and a fantastic boss

    Cons

    Can be a bit challenging with the workload, but i guess that's the same with all workplaces. Pay could be better too to reflect efforts put in and initiatives shown

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are, but just more of it

    I have been working at Gallup full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The solutions, advice and analytics that Gallup provide are unrivalled. There is no other place that I know of that do flexibility like we do. As a full time working mother of two young children, I have been able to design my own work style and arrangements that suit my family and the demands of my role. The culture is truly strengths-based. People know and appreciate the differences in others, and value the contribution...

    Cons

    As a relatively flat organization, those who are looking to climb a corporate ladder may not be suited. However development opportunities are ongoing, with continued specialization and growth.

    I have been working at Gallup full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    As I approach two decades working full time at Gallup I would say it's the culture, people, and the opportunity to work with a set of tools and products that have no equal in the industry that make everyday at work worthwhile, that keeps me here.

    Cons

    Some may consider lengthily tenures in a negative attribute, i don"t.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture strong, continue to mange and communicate as inevitable change happens.

    Pros

    Great research, mission and purpose focused-meaningful work

    Cons

    Conservative, family business, insular. Lacks foresight, vision and commercial awareness, slow to move on changing markets. Pathetic "leadership team; values tenure over talent, political gaming and manipulative tactics. Hypocritical and insincere, self preservation, self justification and progressing one's own agenda is the focus.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach - Managers are key and should be selected on talent not tenure or relationship.

    I worked at Gallup full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of the services Gallup offer are very good. They assist organizations to perform better by getting them to pay attention to things that matter in the workplace.

    Cons

    A political organization that doesn't value the work of their employees. Training was too little too late and at a very superficial level. I originally had a very supportive manager but after he left, the management team were arrogant and lacked a genuine concern for their employees and their customers. It became all about generating fees, regardless of value to client and regardless of our ability to deliver the services.

    Advice to Management

    Start thinking about how you can balance your charges with the real benefits you can offer your clients. Don't value employees who lack any real moral compass because they bring in more business.

    I have been working at Gallup full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Gallup hands down has the world's best leadership. Leadership cares about employees and their success, support what's important to them and partners with employees to fulfil mutual goals. Overall culture fosters friendships because all can freely share and live their strengths and is respected because of them.

    Cons

    I only wish Gallup would more often bypass the desire for a candidate's education beyond a four degree for some of the opportunities. The are a number of potentials and right fits out there who if considered and coached would still soar with their strengths and contribute to Gallup's mission.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership and associates mutually agree that engagement is ultimately the responsibility of the associate. However, a manager/supervisor who actually conveys introspection regarding lowered engagement would give a direct report a sense of affirmation.
