A great company in a fun industry. Work with great people, but advancement may be slow.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsDiageo is the biggest company in the industry, and hires the best people. Benefits are strong, and work-life balance is not a just a punchline - it really exists! Depending on the department you work in, work can be quite horizontal, so you get a lot of exposure and experience even if you are lower in the hierarchy.

ConsAdvancement can be slow, and if you work outside of headquarters, it can be difficult to feel "connected" to the larger corporation. Supply side receives less attention than demand. Being driven by Sales means that other departments of the company do not receive as much attention, even if they are strategically important.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A brilliant place to work - but not as good as it was

    Senior Marketing (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    I worked at Diageo full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: Very bright people. Friendly informal culture. Top quality brands you can really identify with. Good salaries. International reach and scope. Serious company but still in… Cons: It's still a big corporation with all that that implies: complicated processes, constant stakeholder alignment, plenty of jumping through hoops, new mantras from the top… Advice to Senior Management: Take more risks. Act like a major heavyweight company in terms of sponsorships and marketing initiatives. Having said that -… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
