      The best place I've ever worked

      18 Mar 2021 - Anonymous Employee in Omaha, NE

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great flexibility. Don't have to worry about vacation time. Parent friendly. Managers are caring. You are on a team of high performers. It's hard to get in, so your team members are high quality.

      Cons

      You have to learn how to manage yourself because your manager may not give you a lot of direction. This is freeing, but also disorienting for the first year. You have to speak up when you feel overloaded, communicate what you want to work on, and craft your career. It's easy to burn yourself out because you are running with highly motivated high-performers. It's a great problem to have, there's a lot of freedom, but you have to take ownership of your own work life.

      Empowerment and Opportunities to Grow

      14 May 2021 - Marketing Specialist 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Autonomy and empowerment to achieve goals using your individual strengths and creativity. Many opportunities to collaborate and work with smart, talented and motivated colleagues. Exposure to many different industries and disciplines, constant stimulation and learning. Leadership is positive, engaged and very approachable.

      Cons

      If you need to climb the corporate ladder the culture here is all about "right fit" and not "up or out"; there are many more "horizontal" growth opportunities where you can apply your talents/strengths than hierarchical ones.

      Perfect Employer

      3 May 2021 - senior workplace consultant in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      10 years of bliss, very flat structure, so a lot of freedom to do what you do best, which is what I was hired for. Very talented people, and a lot of respect between people of that talent. Looking forward to the next 10 years, until retirement, especially as a shareholder - another pro of being a part of this very special organisation.

      Cons

      Can not think of anything.

      Amazing place to work!

      10 Feb 2021 - Anonymous Employee in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Incredible support from management, you are coaches by somebody that genuinely cares about you - wellbeing, development, passion projects. Opportunities for global connection are truly excellent. You'll get incredible learning opportunities with world-class performance coaches and access to the latest research on many different topics. Gallup also supports work-life integration, as an outcomes based organization you can pick when you work!

      Cons

      Often longer working hours and some of the systems could be updated, but that's a minor as the overall experience is awesome!

      An inside peek of Gallup

      2 Jan 2019 - Senior Managing Consultant in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Never had a job with so much freedom in any other job. This is a very entrepreneurial culture, where change is embraced and explored. Leadership listens and acts. So many friends and families work at Gallup. This is a tribe and close knit group across the entire globe. The culture is super nice and friendly. You can email CEO, CFO, COO, etc. whenever you want about anything you want. The work is extremely meaningful. Purpose filled, and mission oriented. Helping people find their strengths, changing the way the world's managers think about work environments, guiding CEOs and execs on how to put people at the center of their business, and ensuring all 7.5 billion of the world's voices are heard on some of the most important issues facing us today.

      Cons

      Recent changes are making the downsides of the flatness of the organization not so bad. Flat organizations are better for change and letting your voice be heard, but not great for growing into new roles of responsibility. But it's much better now, and I am actually excited for those are just joining the organization. It's a bright future.

      Pros

      Everything started during the interview process! They make you feel comfortable since day 1! You can really feel the difference from the moment you walk into the office for the interview process. This is one of the best place to work as a management consultant ever, a great place to develop your career and get yourself surrounded by the most brilliant minds! All the employees really live the purpose of the company and everyone is so helpful and amazing! I never thought that i could find such a great workplace in the Consulting field!

      Cons

      The only one that i can think is why I didn't apply earlier in my career!

      Mission Driven, Global Organization with Great Development Opportunities

      29 Mar 2019 - Business Development in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Over the past 2 years Gallup London – which is the hub for EMEA – has completely changed for the better, and is currently on a huge dynamic growth path. With a new Managing Partner, there has been a complete overhaul of the mission, workplace culture, leadership, development opportunities and this is now the best – and fastest growing region - in the organization to work at. Mission: If you are mission-driven this is the organization to work at. You will be working on huge, impactful, mission-driven clients at a far earlier stage in your career. The work is exciting and varied and all centred around a core purpose/mission of helping leaders and organizations solve every pressing problem facing humankind. One day you are advising the C-Suite of a major FTSE organization how to improve the lives and productivity of tens of thousands of employees, the next day working for a global foundation trying to improve the health outcomes of every person on the planet. Learning & Development: Unlike other professional services firms Gallup invests heavily in the Learning and Development opportunities for their associates. Ranging from learn-at-lunches with global thought-leaders to opportunities for overseas placements and managers and leaders that care passionately about you and your future. Transparent and Open Workplace Culture: The biggest perk working in EMEA is the transparent and open culture. If you are worried about something, want to know more, just ask. In EMEA there is a tremendous amount of psychological safety, and you can have honest and open discussions with your manager (go-to) about everything.

      Cons

      Not a con, more an observation. Those that excel and get the most out of their Gallup experience approach their growth and development as an active activity. Meaning they are an active participant in discussing what their future could look like. Unlike other professional services firms, this is encouraged by EMEA leadership and many people have many exciting and different roles in their tenure at Gallup.

      Pros

      I have been given so many opportunities in my time so far. A Go To who believes in me and provides support whenever I need it. Colleagues who are highly motivated. An international company; connecting with associates from other countries on a regular basis. Doing a job that I love. A company that has a purpose I'm passionate about: developing people according to their strengths and increasing engagement in the workplace.

      Cons

      I can't think of any cons at the moment; just enjoying the ride
