    I worked at Diageo full-time

    Pros

    Great business and exceptional leadership. Great brands. Extremely supportive people. Exceptional benefits: pension, etc.

    Cons

    A year in Field Sales to kick-off is probably longer than it needs to be: more and quicker rotations would give you a better feel for the breadth of the company. Pay lower than competitors. Obvious moral quandary of hawking liquor.

    I worked at Diageo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working with global brands. These brands gave you a platform to gain experience in business which you wouldn't get from a smaller brand owner. Systems and compliance. Diageo gives you a full understanding of compliance and legality behind it.

    Cons

    Management teams. Poor people management. Tick box attitude rather than personal duty of care and improvement initiative.

    Advice to Management

    Culture to field sales staff needs to change. The culture is set by line management who can be intense, negatively or non existent in the role for support.
