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

    Pros

    Consistently known as one of the best employers to work for, and I can further attest to that. The growth potential is tangible, and it starts from a desire to develop growth from the top. Premium products that the company can relate to. Truly a collaborative environment. Competitive pay and the benefits are helpful. Very accommodative and offices all around the world.

    Cons

    It is not all the time, but like many places, there is a crunch time to deliver. Being an industry leader, a reason for why the company rewards there employees is because, we work hard. Moreover, the exponential growth experienced in the higher band levels, often does level off quite materially, once someone hits a certain band level.

    Advice to Management

    1. Continue to develop growth and have people, who want to move within functions, continue to do so. It truly allows and helps with overall collaboration, innovation, and drives our purpose of celebrating life, every day, everywhere.
