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

Transformation Priorities Director (Former Employee), Chicago, ILNovember 26, 2014
Pros: great brands
Cons: callus approach to managing business and people.
Typical day at work:
- Listen to phone messages and review any unread emails from the day prior.
- Set tasks to complete for the day.
- Get on calls with management and or co-workers to discuss programs, issues, ways of working, etc...
- Get on calls with distributor to discuss programs, current state of business, issues, accomplishments, etc...

What – more... I learned:
- What I learned is this is a company for competitors. This is not a bad thing. In my opinion, most of the employees are competing so hard to beat the next person out that often there is disregard for your fellow employees well being. The competiveness is good to a certain point but at times appears to be callus. Alignment with the right VP/GM's is the key to survival in this company. One cannot survive the constant re-orgs without it.

The hardest part of the job:
Simply put, the hardest thing to do here is to rebuild programs that have been sent to execute without being thought out or complete. I found there was a constant re-building of programs that should be ready to go.

Co Workers:
Some of my co-workers in my opinion are some of the brightest people I've ever met.

The most enjoyable part of the job:
Representing some of the biggest and best Spirit brands in the world. That's a good feeling. – 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

Exciting workplace
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
