Only the best makes you better
Training/Event Coordinator (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMarch 8, 2013
Pros: working with great people
Cons: trying to find time to relax
No day would be the same in this role, which was great, you never knew what was the next item you would need to manage.

Extensive travel, fast pace environment, working with great teams and managers, made this a fantastic role.

At times there was no life balance just work but the satisfaction of watching a great event that you had help to create was – more... worth the loss of personal time. – less

Horrible place to work
warehouseman (Former Employee), Blackgrange,AlloaSeptember 22, 2014
Cons: too many to list
Dark dank warerhouses smelling of urine with yellow tape warning employees that asbestos is present ( Diageo tape does not keep your employees or customers from the dangers of asbestos) .
Full of brown nosing employees willing to throw fellow employees to the sharks for the promise of a full time post as work was limited to three weeks in four on rotation – more... whilst new people were being employed every week.If possible steer clear of this company. – less

Receptionist (Former Employee), Park Royal Station, ENGSeptember 18, 2014
Productive and fun, positive environment. A typical day at Diageo, consisted of logging on to the Condeco system, checking emails, a quick walk through of the meeting rooms. Liaising with the facilities team on what jobs need to be actioned. Management of emails coming through and requests for parking spaces and catering. The hardest part of the job – more... is probably enjoying it too much, honestly. The most enjoyable part was being in a positive friendly environment where I was able to meet high profile clients. – less

Divisional Sales Capability Manager (Current Employee), NigeriaJuly 24, 2014
Pros: enjoyable work environment
Cons: long hours of standing
I train field salesforce on a daily basis base on need basis and gaps identified during field coaching sessions.
I have learned to manage and coach each individual based on their perculiarities and learning styles. I train fit for purpose and not on size fits all approach.
I have an interesting work life with my co-workers and I am loved by all because – more... I find time to attend to everyone's issues.
The hardest part of the job is having to stand for long hours all through most of the days.
The most enjoyable part is that I get to know places through lots of travels and I enjoy work life balance – less

Quit a job that I shouldn't have for this one.
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Plainfield, ILJuly 18, 2014
This job is terribly managed. Only worked there for a year. I worked my butt off and any of them care less. They made sure they won an award for best place to work in Illinois then two weeks later announced layoffs and lower people's pay drastically. That company ruined a lot of people lives. They was not losing money at all. Just greed that has to – more... come from the share holders. I found out first time what birddog meant never heard that word before. When I say terribly manage we found emails that was sent from manager to manager in detail to "birddog" employees. This is upper management! Now a CEO can make decision to layoff but he make 11mill a year? I will never understand that but I guess that's the way things are. I had a job before I worked there. I thought I can make more and enjoy working for a reputable company. That wasn't the case. Their attitude and this is all the way up the chain of this company is : keep them drunk make more money. Because if alcohol wasn't addictive then they wouldn't be in business. – less

Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Glasgow, SCTJune 11, 2014
Pros: job satisfaction
Cons: job insecurity
Each day brought a different challenge and a new experience. I was able to learn so many different skills from stock control to people management. I was able to work with many different characters in my time with Diageo both in management and on the shop floor and this made my time both interesting and challenging.

The part of my job that I most enjoyed – more... was being able to consistently achieving targets, with the downfalls being job insecurity. – less

North America Learning Specialist (Current Employee), Norwalk, CTJune 1, 2014
I spend the majority of my time partnering with our HR Business Partners to create and execute learning plans for all functions in North America. I manage a number of stakeholders and have visibility to senior leadership. Most of my co-workers are remote so I spend a significant amount of time connecting via email and phone. The hardest part of my current – more... role was to get up to speed quickly on the expectations of my stakeholders and become the expert in our region on learning interventions. I enjoy my role because it allows me to positively impact our organization and help to build capabilities thus affecting the quality of our talent. – less
