At Discovery Communications, you will work hard and be rewarded greatly.

Telecommunications Administrator (Current Employee)
Silver Spring, MD

I have been working at Discovery Communications full-time for 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.

ConsLacks 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 Senior ManagementCreate strategy which allows employees more time to train.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
