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

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

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 got the opportunity to move as an Expat to Africa.
I am now experiencing Ghana and before Cameroon.

Challenges seat mainly to move at the right pace considering all challenges that Africa can bring.
The most enjoyable part is when we move into action like recently the depot for pilot went live and we started supplying new customers.

I dont give up easily and I like when I am facing strong challenges.

Marketing Director (Former Employee), Chicago, ILMay 21, 2014
Pros: fun events & employee perks
Cons: long hours & no work/life balance
Diageo is a great place to work with world class brands with a diverse culture and thinking. As with all large companies that are owned by shareholders, you have to contuously drive profit through innovation and keeping costs low. This makes for a very fast paced & ambitious work environment, but most of the employees thrive under this type of pressure, – more... as the results and acheivements are so rewarding. But at the same time, it has become less fun and more relentless as the years have gone on. – less
