I have been working at Diageo full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Home based so level of trust given is high.
Outstanding benefits - Health Care - Salary
Iconic world class brands to work with.
Respected Marketing and Quality however slipping.Cons
Snr Level Leadership is forever restructuring so you are living in fear of being severed.
Talent is lost due to 3rd party work - lack of accountability - lip service given and not a fair playing field.
Way of working is a very high priority however this is only one way - standards and morals are demanded rightly from the top down however this is not reciprocated - other words as an employee i don't seem to get the same respect back.Advice to ManagementAdvice
For goodness sake keep the talent that you invest so heavily in.
Talent should stay and be respected - let them move on if the individual wants to. Coach and train to move forward.
Don't just for the sake of the shareholder or new CEO do a wholesale sweep of talent and undermine the respect that has been developed over the years. The CEO and the individual Global Presidents don't have the on the ground experience or knowledge of how things actually work. The Ivy league team in the Ivory tower at HQ don't see how the actual real life on the street day to day business works. The office v the real world is different and you need to flex.RecommendsNegative OutlookApproves of CEO
