    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Discovery Communications (Silver Spring, MD).

    Interview

    The initial communication was via email. A phone interview followed. The people I worked with were all very intelligent and creative. My office mates came from diverse geographic, cultural, and academic backgrounds. The corporate culture encouraged diverse opinions, innovation, and ideas regardless of job title.

    Meetings often included people from other departments. This provided an opportunity to find out the needs and concerns of a particular program or project from a variety of perspectives.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you willing to relocate and be here in three days?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate my offer. My advice is to ask, because you never know if you don't ask.
