I have been working at Diageo full-time

Pros

Growing business across rural Scotland with a fantastic quality of life and salary for local conditions.
Opportunities to move across wide range of production plant from malting, distilling through to packaging within Scottish production facilities. Further opportunities to move into beer , wine and marketing across the globe.

Cons

A lot of competition for promotion across a relatively flat structure does cause some slower progression and some dissatisfaction with opportunities with young ambitious staff who value hierarchical promotion over quality of life .Taking time to assess the conditions and roles they have and the life balance they can enjoy should help everyone realize the grass is not always greener elsewhere.

    I worked at Diageo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Diageo has good processes in place and takes good care of their employees.

    Cons

    Must be aggressive with their marketing campaign

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diageo brands sold in the Philippines have different (SRP), there should be a uniform selling price anywhere you go.

    I have been working at Diageo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice building, nice people, stable environment, precise salary, good neighborhood, good (customizable) cafeteria and other benefits, good healthcare

    Cons

    Low salary, even for a junior programmer,
    slow solution management in the company,
    (really) idiot middle-managers, who doesn't even know what their team does as a daily work,
    boring, absolutely useless meetings, where nothing happens except talking about nothing and/or trivial things

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide about the promotions based on the results, not about the who is who's who, and asslicking (russia team in hungary knows very well, what I'm talking about).
    Oh, and you should really hire someone to the upper management who knows more about IT than you do. As I see now, all you know about IT is that it's some thingy with blinking screens.
