    I have only been there a few months. Everyone is very helpful and friendly. All seem to be working for the single goal.

    Not much to say here. The drive in can be a bit painful at time.

    Keep doing what you are doing

    Pros

    The company is an amazing work place. The benefits are extremely good and having a doctor in the Silver Spring HQ is awesome!

    Cons

    Very slow to change. Very slow to adopt new technology. Politics can be a problem in all businesses but at Discovery it is in ever facet of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen closer to middle managers they actually run most companies.
