    I have been working at Diageo full-time

    Pros

    Great culture with a portfolio of incredible brands. People are passionate about winning and developing talent.

    Cons

    Limited career advancement, all roles are being downsized and or reduced to cut costs. Norwalk office is a sub-optimal location.

    Advice to Management

    Stop profiling employees based on gender/diversity and instead hire, develop, and retain the best possible talent. If you do that, diversity will come.

    I have been working at Diageo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of money to be made
    Insurance is amazing
    Schedule is great and easy to balance home life and work life.
    Plenty of overtime to grab as well

    Cons

    Management has their favorites and it shows
    The union isn't very strong and there really isn't any backing when you need them
    And your union brothers and sisters don't care about anyone but themselves

    Advice to Management

    focus more on your workers who make the operation run instead of only caring about getting product out and running the lines until they break down
