Our people are our priority.

Our success depends on our associates' great ideas and hard work. Gallup is a living, breathing example of the workplace engagement research and consulting we implement in many of our clients' organizations. We hire people who are a right fit for our company, and we surround them with managers who care about them and their development.

Our associates decide how successful they will be at Gallup. They develop their individual career paths and roles based on their unique strengths. We understand that each associate is his or her own person, and we respect the talents and abilities each individual brings to his or her job. We engage our associates and provide them with opportunities to ensure their personal and professional wellbeing.

Performance matters most.

We expect the very best from our associates. We also understand that individuals achieve success in different ways, using many methods. We give our associates unmatched autonomy and freedom on a day-to-day basis. Our associates do what they do best every day in the ways that work best for them. This formula produces great work and positive outcomes.

With this independence comes accountability for results. We accurately measure our associates' efforts and accomplishments using methods such as a pay-for-performance compensation plan. This gives associates the ability to directly affect their pay through their work on a daily basis. With focus and an entrepreneurial spirit, the possibilities are nearly endless.

Relationships are required.

Do you have a best friend at work? We do. Our exhaustive research finds that friendships and relationships at work positively affect performance in many business outcomes. It pays to have quality partnerships in the workplace.

Gallup's associates are no strangers to spending quality time with friends at work. We emphasize the value of friendships and genuine partnerships throughout the organization. And it doesn't stay within our office walls. We are trusted advisors to our clients. These relationships are built on quality work and the rapport between our associates.

We love to learn.

Our thirst for knowledge and understanding is just as insatiable now as it was in the 1930s, when Dr. George Gallup began polling the will of the people. Our groundbreaking and innovative research allows us to constantly learn and grow as an organization. We impart our dynamic findings and awareness to our clients and others around the world to drive positive change.

Our associates strive to learn and grow as well. They collaborate with one another to create better consulting solutions. They also gain valuable knowledge from client experiences and relationships, and they use this education to enhance our current practices and develop new ideas.

We want to change the world.

We are not shy about our intent to create positive change throughout the globe with our work and partnerships. We hire associates who are emotionally connected to Gallup's aspirations and ambitious goals.

We are passionate about what we do. We are motivated to affect the industries and areas in which we work using our actions and expertise. And we invest in our associates because they inspire us with their care for clients and their focus on achieving Gallup's ultimate goals.

Our unique culture works for us. We invite you to learn more about our workplace and decide if Gallup is right for you.

Diversity is a fundamental value of Gallup.

At Gallup, our definition of diversity goes beyond a listing of objective characteristics -- such as age, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and culture -- to encompass an individual's talents, personal beliefs, and thinking and decision-making styles. In fact, these unique characteristics or differences are what make each employee invaluable to our organization's success.

By bringing the best minds and the most talented individuals together to address our clients' needs, we create a stronger, richer team environment and are able to deliver a wide source of solutions that draw on our varying perspectives.

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers, great office space, great experience, great pay. I know the MP's for both the MW and West Region and they are great leaders (very different styles). Your colleagues quickly become your best friends, even those who have been around for 40 years. You have access to high level senior execs with big name clients - always extremely motivating.

    Cons

    I've read the negative reviews and the people who complain probably think they are right, and in their own minds they might be. The reality is, Management Consulting is a challenging industry. Like any big name Management Consulting firm, you need to be the best because you are interacting with the best (Fortune 500 execs). If you do not fit the mold, you will quickly start looking for excuses and blaming other people. It is a good company to work for and if you are smart, motivated, and have the mindset of a leader and consultant you will be successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not my place. I have a lot of respect for the leaders of the organization.

    Associate Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Toronto, ON

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Gallup.

    Interview Details

    Similarly to most peoples' experience, I applied online and received an invitation to proceed with the first phone interview within the week. It was an hour long phone call and I found the person I was talking to be quite friendly despite the fact that they weren't allowed to communicate too much or elaborate on the questions they were asking. As I got more comfortable throughout the call, I made a few jokes and they laughed so I suppose that helped them relate to me as a real person. I didn't find it to be as rigid as other reviews had said it would be.

    Although preparing for the behavioural interview is of limited value, what is helpful is to think of examples from your work experience for the questions that they might ask. The questions other interviewees listed here were very helpful in figuring out what they would ask but there's only so much you can prepare for this! The questions seemed to be pretty random and they asked the same questions over and over again (I suppose to see if you would change your answer). So my advice is to be honest.

    At the end of the call, I was told that they would like to proceed with the next step which is a second phone interview. They said it would be similar to the first one but more in-depth. I noted here that an offer wasn't extended but I'm still going through the process so we'll see.

    Interview Questions
    • - How do you like to be compensated? (Pay for performance or regular salary)
      - Do you find that people come to you for advice? What was the most recent time someone came to you for advice and what did you tell them?
      - Do you think people do things for you because they like you? Give us an example.
      - Do you prefer a job that's 8-5 or more of a lifestyle? Explain why.
      - Would you consider yourself to be an overachiever? Give us an example of when you think you overachieved.
      - What kind of scoring mechanisms do you use in your day to day life?
      - Do you think a manager should spend more time with his best performing employees or the more mediocre ones?
