I have been working at Diageo

Pros

Makes a great effort in promoting diversity in the workplace. Prides itself on having the leading brands in the industry. Can be a good place to work depending on the location.

Cons

The historical leadership position within the industry has bred arrogance in many employees especially within the UK. Has its fair share of company or consultant generated buzz words that are looked for in the language that employees speak. Functional global matrix organisational design has meant that there is not complete clarity within markets and that budgets are covetted as personal money stores. Lack of decision making by senior managers who tend to remain in situ for too long creating a lack of promotion opportunities. Much of the strategic thinking driven by embedded consultants.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the long term strategic decisions for the company and don't throw the vision plans away in order to meet short term profit targets. The culture is not just words, it needs to walked with conviction.

    Pros

    Great people, high level of competency, good renumeration, and lots of opportunity for advancement. Excellent training to advance your working knowledge and skill sets.

    Cons

    Constant reorganization it seemed to happen every year like clock work. With change often came new management with a new agenda.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great company, with great people and great brands second to none. Keep the focus and stay the course as opposed to changing every year. This way people will be loyal to the company.

    Pros

    Growing company that will develop very strong brands via new emphasis on solid branding

    Cons

    Passive agressive management style with hidden agendas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear feedback to employees regarding performance so they can gage their work. Avoiding honest feedback, or having personal agendas that disuades solid performance by staff does not help folks move forward.
