    Good salary, great benefits and pension

    Cons

    Union workers can be sour, buildings and equipment are old and worn out.

    Advice to Management

    More job rotation, stop unloading semis by hand, it is the 21st century after all. Diageo is a very wealthy company and shouldn't be purchasing old pallets.

    Pros

    Job description for a Junior Analyst position sounded great.

    Cons

    The job application has a mandatory field asking what nationality the applicant is. This is unacceptable and illegal. Shouldn't you be hiring based on education, skills, and past experience?? What relevance does an applicant's nationality have?

    Advice to Management

    Please have your HR review the pre-screening questions on your applications.

    Incredible brands. Exceptional training opportunities and lots of freedom to succeed. A fun and enjoyable group of people to work with, and they are a bright bunch.

    Typical internal politics as anyone can expect from a large global company. They are cutting back on resources as well so a lot more work is put on the current teams plate.

    Keep up the great work and spirit.
