    I have been working at Discovery Communications full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - For a large company there is still an embrace of individuality that exists within Discovery
    - Work life balance depends on your manager (mine at the moment rocks!)
    - Pay is on the upper side of the scale
    - Perks and benefits are some of the strongest in the industry with good time off, sick, 401K, and medical
    - Strong telework opportunities
    - Opportunity to work with incredibly motivated, smart, engaged people
    - Easy access from Metro, MARC, and other public transport plus employee parking in the building
    - Lots of great nearby restaurants within easy walking distance (a 1 hour lunch actually feels like a 1 hour lunch)

    Cons

    - There are politics - what company doesn't have them.
    - Innovations started in one area will be quashed in another
    - Little synergy between the different groups
    - The quality of the manager / director that you get can be a crap shoot - some are good at what they do but their interpersonal skills are non-existent.
    - In some areas of Silver Spring you can definitely feel a sense of despair (counter to the energy you see in other places)
    - Some of their policies and practices lag behind the times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Remember what made Discovery great and get back to that
    - Value and support your employees, without them, you have no product, no content, nothing to sell to your customers and viewers
    - Value and support your viewers by offering them quality, engaging, and compelling content

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
