    Pros

    -Competitive pay -Good experience to add that you worked in a global company -Great Brand Ambassador Program. Great perks. -Room to grow and excel if given the right leadership

    Cons

    -No work life balance. -Boy's club in all upper management -Leaders are clearly unqualified and very unprofessional to their direct reports. Oftentimes you see leaders use their direct reports to jump up to the next level. Employees then don't receive any growth or recognition. -Managers are quick to anger and quick to blame. -Leaders and Managers are quick to move on to...

    Advice to Management

    Be straight forward in your expectations and during the interview. Don't advertise the job as glamorous and as a great opportunity if you cannot deliver. Don't act surprised with the high turnover when poor leadership is clearly one of the faults.

    I worked at Diageo full-time

    Pros

    There is good work life balance and the company offers good perks and benefits. Flexible hours if needed. Overall, the company structure is okay.

    Cons

    The people and leadership have ruined this place. Their used to be a fun environment, now all leadership talks about is quotas, diversity and they don't really care about the individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about diversity and hire the best talent for the job. Realize that the majority of folks have plenty of time in their day to do more. Reward the people who do their job and penalize the lazy ones

    Pros

    Competitive salary and employee benefits. Lots of vacation time allowed. Excellent brand portfolio. Diverse and collaborative thinking encouraged. Fair talent reviews.

    Cons

    Work life balance isn't always great, especially if you're working on the supply side rather than corporate. To move up you usually have to move geographical location.
