    I worked at Diageo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Amazing brands and an incredibly talented and dedicated work force

    Cons

    A silo based structure too often leads to myopic decisions that may serve a single brand, region or division/department.

    Advice to Management

    Need to find the path to decsion making at all levels that is in the best interest of "one Diageo" rather than the fractured decsion making that serves segments of the whole.

    Pros

    Money was great. Benefits are excellent. Some of my coworkers were good to work with.

    Cons

    Lots of butt kissing in management. Company spent 55 million dollars to the Relay Plant in Baltimore just to close 3 years later. Consistently in competition with other Diageo plants across the country. No balance between work and life.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like people not numbers
