I have been working at Discovery Communications full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Transparent
- Provides opportunity for career growth or change
- Corporate culture is direct. Executive management strives to stay relevant which drives profit and avoids complacency. I don't mind working hard and I loved having a mission and strategy I could believe in and support wholeheartedly every day I came to work.

Cons

Lacks clear strategy to support employees continued education and/or industry training. While the Lifeworks programs should be greatly praised (it was the best I experienced throughout my 15+ year career), I found getting the time to educate/train without distraction almost impossible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create strategy which allows employees more time to train.

    I have been working at Discovery Communications full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits (annual bonus, health insurance, paid vacation, 401K). Discovery keeps employees up to date on state of the company, corporate updates, etc

    Cons

    Salaries are not so great for lower level employees. It is also very hard to be promoted. It seems like they prefer to hire from outside than promote from within.
