Employee experience is very dependent upon line manager. Line managers vary greatly, but mentors are readily available.

I have been working at Diageo full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

High company standards for marketing responsibly to consumers. Work/life balance & scheduling flexibility. Great focus on getting your work done and not so much about when. Truly global, opportunity to learn about other regions and meet those who have your role in those regions.

Cons

There is a strong people agenda, but it is not followed consistently by all line managers. HR is there to support the line manager & company, and the employee doesn't get support to make sure performance reviews, stakeholder feedback & stack-ranking processes are consistent. Little input to annual performance goals; very top-down. Very performance driven culture (which can also be good) If you hit your numbers, you get a good review, usually.

Advice to Management

The annual employee survey doesn't ask all the right questions. If you're really interested in employee feedback, get it directly. Stop and talk to us during Happy Hours.

    Pros

    Interesting work, nice people to work with. Sometimes work/life balance is a challenge but overall nice place. The brands are fun and everyone is proud of the product we are working with. Each location has its own bar and Thursday happy hours are fun.

    Cons

    Headquartered in Norwalk. If you are a young person, it is not ideal area to work/live at. If you are a manager the promotion opportunities are limited due to limited number of director roles open. Take 3-5 years to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Give more praise for good work
