    Pros

    Good company overall, internal events on a weekly basis, growth opportunity available, meet lots of different people.

    Cons

    Compensation is somewhat low compared to similar jobs in the area, certain areas lack automation (excel cannot be the answer to all problems)

    Advice to Management

    More focus on developing your assets, stop meeting about meeting, better content.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Discovery Communications.

    Interview

    Applied via their website. Received an online video interview where they asked four questions. Was contacted for a phone interview where more in-depth and resume-specific questions were asked. Overall, it was a pretty informal process. They seemed to care very much about experience that may lend itself to the position, which was expected, so be prepared to highlight your skills pertaining to the position you're applying for.
