Good company. Need to reevaluate their discipline procedures.

I worked at Diageo

Pros

Excellent pay for the job.
Good balance of work and personal life (sometimes)
Wonderful benefits for hourly production employees.
Nice perks. (free liquor)

Cons

They need to learn to treat all employees the same.
Discipline procedures need to be fair for everyone you can't punish one employee harsher than another in similar situations.
Some of the management doesn't take into consideration your personal life outside of work.
The union for the production employees could back us up A LOT better.
Definitely show favoritism towards certain people over others.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When you say you're going to listen to your employees actually follow through with it. Don't have your employees take survey that you say you'll look at if you're not going to address most issues on them.

    Pros

    great work, global, open cultures, meritocracy
    ability to travel and have fun - this is a booze company man !
    great set of values
    good people

    Cons

    changes and restructuring frequently lead to some uncertainty
    The exec itself needs to change - to get some fresh blood. Paul has done a great job but time to pass the baton ?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it is still a very anglo saxon company. this needs to change. need to experiment with asian and other talent at senior levels.
