    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.

    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.
