Pros

Salary , great brands and heritage

Cons

two words which are bastradised in diageo india is leadership and strategy and both are missing big time
HR dept. is non existant , they only work as hiriing managers/recruiters

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In 2009 compnay did a restructuring and asked 70 odd people to go and in 2011-12 60+ people left on their own ( July to Jan). please take out some time and do some introspection and try to find out why people are leaving

    Diageo India clearly lacks leadership and vision at all levels, the employees turnover (attrition rate) is very high

    Poor leadership in India
    Favoritism in promotion
    Poor direction
    Lots of corruption by sales in dealing with customers-misappropriation of funds in civil and defence businesses.
    Poor HR practices-untrained and inexperienced HR managers in job.
    Poor annual increments.
    Poor systems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your eyes open to events/incidents that are happening in India. Employees are leaving in big way. Find out the reasons. There is rampant corruption and lack of employee engagement.

    Pros

    great brand porfolio, ok salary, good benefits, looks good on resume working for market leader.

    Cons

    incompetent management; the analysts seem to know more than the managers/directors
    unethical business practices
    highly political, the hard workers are not recognized instead all the work gets dumped on you and you're put on the black list while the ones that don't do any work and just play "office politics" get promoted. Not very encouraging.
    constant lay offs; they can't seem to figure out that they're strategy is especially since the competition is catching up
    high in favoritism
    they don't practice what they preach and don't stand for the companies values
    Lack of smart people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your survey scores because otherwise you will never make it to the top companies to work for. Reward those that are actually doing the work and tone down the office politics and unethical business practices.
