    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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Read your own books and follow your own advice. Listen to your employees instead of terrorizing them.
