    Pros

    Open & caring leadership team, lots of development opportunities, close knit cross functional teams, results oriented business, great perks (stipend for Diageo brands, happy hour, events), smart & talented people, big all business community service events, awesome brands, lots of opportunities to move across the business through beer wine & spirits & globally, fun place to work! Great industry, great properties, great brands, great company.

    Culture could be better in terms of people having a "can do" attitude & embracing change, though that is improving quickly.

    I worked at Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Diageo has the resources and procedures in place to support it's workers with their career paths. The avoid a "lost" feeling and provide much information on new positions and classes/tools to help existing positions.

    Cons

    With a larger company like such, it's difficult to execute change. Voices and opinions are muffled and career growth is slow. It's too be expected and isn't a true "con" but it is apparent at ever level.

    I worked at Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They are willing to teach if you are willing to learn. The overall work environment is pleasant as long as a blind eye can be turned against the unsavory factors of the management.

    Cons

    Leadership problems abound in this company from the tippy top to the very bottom. I can't point fingers but the good people that truly put in 100% have the life choked out of them by the days end and it isn't fair.

    "Diageo is a mess. They keep changing direction, hiring people, firing people & laying people off. They manage by fear - fear of losing your job, fear of doing something wrong. They talk a good game about valuing people, work - life balance etc, but they do the exact opposite."
