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

Pros

Nice building, nice people, stable environment, precise salary, good neighborhood, good (customizable) cafeteria and other benefits, good healthcare

Cons

Low salary, even for a junior programmer,
slow solution management in the company,
(really) idiot middle-managers, who doesn't even know what their team does as a daily work,
boring, absolutely useless meetings, where nothing happens except talking about nothing and/or trivial things

Advice to Management

Decide about the promotions based on the results, not about the who is who's who, and asslicking (russia team in hungary knows very well, what I'm talking about).
Oh, and you should really hire someone to the upper management who knows more about IT than you do. As I see now, all you know about IT is that it's some thingy with blinking screens.

    I have been working at Diageo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many opportunities to learn and take on more responsibilities.

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunities. Environment consistently changes to the point to where change is truly the only constant. Leadership changes drive different agendas -- need better succession planning.

    Advice to Management

    Cost is a driver, but value is more important.

    I worked at Diageo full-time

    Pros

    Diageo is the biggest company in the industry, and hires the best people. Benefits are strong, and work-life balance is not a just a punchline - it really exists! Depending on the department you work in, work can be quite horizontal, so you get a lot of exposure and experience even if you are lower in the hierarchy.

    Cons

    Advancement can be slow, and if you work outside of headquarters, it can be difficult to feel "connected" to the larger corporation. Supply side receives less attention than demand. Being driven by Sales means that other departments of the company do not receive as much attention, even if they are strategically important.
