      Great in some areas, let down in others

      Pros

      The company has great things going for it: amazing brands you can really get behind, great people who are passionate about what they do, great at offering internal opportunities (even more if you're mobile), friendly and inclusive culture.

      Cons

      Work life balance. Trying to create a flexible culture but expectations are always increasing and no proper prioritisation takes place. Workload can be unmanageable and its very difficult to get a good balance. Reward below market.

      Victimisation

      Sep 5, 2021 - Contractor in Cameron Bridge, Scotland, Scotland

      Pros

      Well paid and some of the staff were decent and not on a power trip

      Cons

      Only cons are diageo staff think they are above you they also victimise contractors Everyone has their phone except contractors we are not allowed too keep them in our cabins or cars on site so we can check them on our break. If we want too make sure our family's are OK we're expected too walk 20 mins off site when we have a 20 minute break so not possible. also they can't plan a shutdown. Too many cooks spoil a broth situation. Really poorly planned shutdown. Their really needs too be a look at the amount of management it is ridiculous the site I'm talking about needs a strong leader their at all times too keep all these managers in line. And too plan future shutdowns everyone was wanting things done on the same day they had booked people in on the same days as others had so there was no communication between them really needs looked at.
