I have been working at Diageo full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Clarity in purpose and business strategy. Its people and the collaboration culture. Empowerment through confidence and risk taking. Great industry and the best brands. Excellent business performance and outlook.

Cons

Still struggling to find the right balance between operational agility and controls. Technology, improving but still lagging. Understanding and implementing operating model in a consistent way remains a challenge.

    Pros

    They give you real jobs, not just mini internships, and a lot of exposure to upper management and growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Working at a plant versus working at corporate is a VERY different environment. It's still a great company culture, but be prepared to work some crazy hours.

    I have been working at Diageo full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Global multinational that offers lots of opportunities to move internationally
    Diageo has some of the worlds most established brands so selling them isnt too difficult compared to some of the competition
    Fantastic office facility in London and some of the benefits are as good as you will find
    Unrivalled share scheme, opportunity to make lots of money if you stay long term
    Great people who are very passionate about the company
    Great regular staff events

    Cons

    Some managers tend to be quite old school in their approach which doesnt help people at the early stage of their career and can intimidate some
    Competitors pay better salaries
    Appraisal/Development system is poor, management don't really help you get to where you want to be they expect you to 'own' your development and do all the work yourself, which is tough when you are a new employee and don't know much about the company
    Lots of focus and attention goes to graduates as opposed to other employees at the same level who are as good as and usually better performers
    Lots of change and restructuring which leaves employees in limbo for long periods, and management don't do a lot to reassure employees who are under threat
    Graduates are often given roles they are not worthy of and don't understand how things work at customer level which leads to a lot of pointless activities on the ground
    Feedback from employees is often ignored

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and stand up for them
    If you feel an idea is a bad one then say so as opposed to the view that every idea will work
    Spend more time with new employees when they start instead of using team mates to get them started
