    My experience at Diageo was wonderful!

    Intern (Current Employee)
    Norwalk, CT

    ProsI was an intern and the company was really wonderful. Everyone was generally happy, willing to help, and enthusiastic about their job.

    ConsThe interview process felt rather disorganized as they were restructuring the division I was interning. My initial start date kept being pushed back, but once I began, I loved it!
