    I worked at Diageo full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits, global opportunities, great industry, great brands

    Cons

    Most of current leadership team lacks leadership, alcohol sales are down, several years of downsizing, company prefers to hire outside for Sr Mgt level vs promoting from within

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Individuals need to be moved cross-functionally early in career; need to find mechanism to reward high performers since there are no upward positions available, take a "risk" on internal employees vs hiring leadership from outside
