“Good working environment, well-intentioned toward staff care, but falling short”

The working environment is of a good standard, success is celebrated and the people you work with are nice Corporate values are worthwhile as well There are promotion opportunities and openings to progress and is there is a generally positive desire to getting the work/life balance right for their employees

Work/life balance is not achieved due to the volume of work coming in Change management is really poor and you are constantly on catch up There is not enough involvement of management in the training and development of the staff In general senior management are so remote, making decisions in an ivory tower without really knowing how it affects the staff who have to implement changes on a day to day level

Culture of celebration!

“Dynamic Diageo”

A growing company with a busy, dynamic atmosphere. The management are very open to innovative thinking and offer excellent strategic vision for the company. There are plenty of opportunities for people to join the firm. You'll be working with big, well-known brands, so that always looks good on your CV. The hours are good and the pay is very good.

The executive team is a bit remote and could communicate better with the work force. There's often quite a lot of dithering and confusion when it comes to making big decisions.

A global company, which gives you the chance to work overseas.

“Dalwhinnie Distillery - leads guides were older & lacked creativity & enthusiasm. Middle managment somewhat involved - senior managment nonexi”

The very rare chance to partake in a staff tasting of various whiskies. Aside from that some of the other staff could be a laugh occasionally and also most of the tourists seemed to be nice people. There was really no training or information or education to help improve or motivate the staff; there was no attempt to share with staff a deeper understanding of how things "really" worked in whisky production; you were just given some fact sheets and then followed tours for a week or 2 and then led your own tours. The place offers whisky and chocolate, mostly polite and perfunctory staff but not much else.

Not one of the staff I talked to, even a couple of senior management types liked Diageo - everything was pretty straightforward but all was done without much joy or happiness; there was even a level of secretiveness in regards to the more detailed aspects of how things worked at the distillery and again no real education to improve staff or their understanding of whisky production and thus the tours were mainly basic.

Total lack of creativity or forward thinking in terms of uplifting and enthusing the day-to-day operations with energy and/or with some excitement or innovation. Dull, predictable and run by older "lead" guides who didn't lead or stretch themselves very much in terms of motivating the other staff. They were protecting their own positions, not open to change, seemed somewhat burnt out and mainly killing time until they retired. The lead guides did not like to try things in new ways - it had the since of working in a factory.
