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

Global Category Manager (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Diageo full-time for more than 3 years

ProsHigh 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.

ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementThe 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
