Culture at DIAGEO

Please describe your company's culture both in the office and after hours. Let us know about the structure and hierarchy, cooperation and teamwork, and socialising amongst colleagues.

We are great when it comes to cross-functionality and connecting across departments/teams. Diageo is very results driven and have introduced more structured performance metrics to measure how we are performing in our roles. This can sometimes feel overwhelming, but the challenge is great and I’ve learnt that if you get stuck in and seek support from your peers anything is possible and the learning growth is huge. Socially we are very good - having a fully functioning cocktail bar open on Thursdays and Fridays in the office definitely does a lot to bring people together at the end of the week and catch up/unwind.

We have a great culture in the office and out of the office, everyone is hardworking, friendly and enjoys each other's company. The company is big on teamwork, and we have fantastic opportunities to socialise amongst colleagues.

In the office it is generally quite relaxed and flexible. Quite a flat structure and doesn't feel so hierarchical (refreshing compared to an FMCG I interned at). There is a lot of collaboration between functions, so the ability to work in a team and communicate well is important and well-regarded. Within your own team, people are really supportive and Friday lunchtime people will often go to the pub for a meal. We have a bar at work that is open on Thursday and Friday evenings and people enjoy catching up together over a drink. It's a relaxed way to get to know your colleagues.

Relatively flat hierarchy, strong relationships and positive energy. Being a drinks company, it's a social working environment and enjoy socialising during after work.
