I have been working at Discovery Communications full-time

Pros

They offer work/life balance programs and a supportive environment. The work is challenging, the compensation is good, and the company has an excellent reputation.

Cons

Like most successful companies, they are most interested in the bottom dollar. People are human capital, and as such, are expendable if not profitable.

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

    Pros

    Challenging work environment
    Intelligent management who constantly pushes you do perform better
    Great Teamwork
    Minimal Supervision on projects

    Cons

    Ironically too corporate compared to the content the company produces
    Not as innovative as it could potentially be
    Work environment is drab and not conducive to being creative
    Not that many incentives to perform better
    Lots of workload for ok pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more team events which encourage employees to perform better and think outside of the box. Feels very corporate and suffocating at times. The atmosphere the marketing group works within is not creative at all and unfortunately everyone is told that they need to make more $$ for the company with no direct incentive for employees themselves. Management needs to incentivise better and encourage growth from within
