Great products and good people to work with, but most recent boss was brutally clueless when it came to relationships.

I worked at Diageo

Pros

The company has great products and generally the people there are fairly good to work with. The compensation is pretty good for the industry.

Cons

I had 2 excellent bosses but the 3rd was a complete disaster - he fulfilled almost every bad boss stereotype out there. HR is there for management and clearly not for lower-level employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

HR needs to investigate feedback from employees. If your value surveys say that the manager is a disaster and there are patterns of inappropriate and unprofessional behaviour then perhaps you should do your due diligence and investigate.

    I have been working at Diageo

    Pros

    Diageo is a great place to work. Co workers are professional and courteous. I like the constant interface with the global markets where our brands feature. Management is suberb and competent

    Cons

    Downsides are the office politics that play in every environment. We are very strict with ethics and compliance and this can often be a challenge particularly as we play in the Nigerian market

    I have been working at Diageo

    Pros

    Growing company, global heritage, great brands, lots of passion, great salary and compensation. Despite global heritage, company is a challenger so lots of innovation, new ways to tackle market place issues which makes it exciting

    Cons

    Low tolerance of ambiguity, hectic targets. Given the nature of business in India, senior management sometimes try to shy away from ambiguity rather than embrace it. This also impacts expecations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You've got a good company and a good bunch of people. Just set the expectations right and growth will continue strongly
