I have been working at Diageo

Pros

Diageo has a great work life balance. For the majority of roles, there are great perks that are not quantifiable, such as leaving early on Fridays, working from home, time off flexibility and overall stress free work environment. Additionally, as much as you would like to drive your career, Diageo can support you.

Cons

It is sometimes very difficult to navigate. There is a feeling of a larger corporation and sometimes a lack of impact you can make in the future of the company.

    I worked at Diageo

    Pros

    Given a Quarterly Per diem of $225+ to purchase company product.
    Company pension plan is very good and you do not need to contribute
    Opportunity to make a difference if given the right backing.

    Cons

    Since the 2008 downturn in the economy there have been layoffs 3 times to downsize and get more competitive. The company seems to care more about shareholders more than employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would agree that sufficient communication time is given prior to layoffs although announcing a possible layoff and then letting people wait a month to hear if they have their job is not right. That time period leads for more angst and lower productivity. If you are going to layoff, tell the people that will be leaving immediately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before you change a structure or a way of working, make sure that you have really assessed whether it is working or not, and are not just trying something new because it is time to change
