    Pros

    Great Brands, People and Culture. Clear strategy that links to the performance culture.

    Cons

    The level of change. It almost feels like the change is for change sake. Take time to embed one change before you are on to the next.

    Advice to Management

    Change is good and invigorating at times but don't throw the baby out with the bath water. You risk losing what was special at Diageo.

    I worked at Diageo full-time

    Pros

    The people are all very knowledgeable and capable. The benefits and travel were good compared to other companies in their peer group. Deeply discounted alcohol. Profit sharing is nice.

    Cons

    Old boys club! Former President of NA ran the company like a 'mafia' family if I'm honest. If he didn't like you, your days were numbered. HR basically would do nothing. Its better to do your job versus offering instructive feedback, views and opinions.

    Advice to Management

    Replacing the past President was a good thing! Now, its time to look at replacing any soldiers still standing. Revamping the entire HR department wouldn't be a bad thing.

    Former Employee - WINE TRACKER in Rutherford, CA

    I worked at Diageo (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - I was mentored and trained by their Wine Tracker, Tony Gruzdiv, who is very knowledgeable and very smart. He was very patient and diligent with teaching me WiPS.

    - I worked with the Cellar team and Lab. Both fantastic and hard working people.

    - Harvest activities was fast paced and busy.

    - Townhall meetings were great for acknowledging outstanding employees and informing us of any changes.

    - Celebrations were inclusive to all employees.

    - Paid a generous amount for my entry-level knowledge

    - Diageo is a giant in the industry and to work for one of their companies was an invaluable experience

    Cons

    - I would have appreciated more department or one on one time with upper-management.
