    Pros

    Get to work with great brands and great people. Experience can depend a bit on where you work - the demand side of the business is thriving but central functions are being whittled away! Benefits are great in particular family leave.

    Cons

    Culture is very pro collective decision making meaning decisions take a long time to be made

    I have been working at Diageo full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Salaries , Potential to try other Roles

    Cons

    Lack of Trust, Excessive Bureaucracy, Lack of Real Decision Making, Box Ticking, 'We know best' , Patronising attitude. Poor decision Making & Communication. Double Standards of Managers. It's evident we're in a race to the bottom to cut cost, including Staff T&C's in an attempt to maximise profit irrespective of the impact on staff who are allegedly 'so valuable' to the business.

    Pros

    Amazing selection of brands

    Cons

    Management not particularly inspiring or prepared, very short term decision making driven more by share price than actual strategy. General attitude is that people believe are much more prepared than what they actually are.

    Pros

    Great career opportunities all over the world, a truly global company. People tend to move roles fairly regularly (2 years seems pretty standard). Great brands, fun industry. Great company culture; fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    Decision making can be a bit slow, also the ongoing pressure to deliver on quarterly financial performance is always there. But I imagine that’s fairly standard for all big corporates.
