    Pros

    Needs to adapt work culture and ethic from Diageo group

    Cons

    United Spirits is one of the worst company to work with with their old school HR Policies and worst attitude HRBP specially in Supply, Demand and support functions. They do not treat their employees and support staff as human beings.

    Advice to Management

    Please get rid of these overly paid HRBPs with wrong attitudes and please adapt a employee centric work culture like Diageo global.
