I worked at Discovery Communications full-time

Pros

Defined mission
Good people
Outstanding (full) benefits
Offers work-life balance
Strives for creative, ground-breaking work
Has LEED HQ building
Clear about profit oriented focus

Cons

Roller Coaster. There is an on-going culture of continuous re-organization and therefore uncertainty about job stability regardless of your performance
Technology disrupters w founding business model: what platform will content be streamed on in 2025?
Lack of a career advancement plan (promotions seem to go to outside hires)
Skews to hire young, does not balance "ages" in the workforce
Doesn't re-hire former employees all too often which is a loss to the company
Need to know someone inside to get resume lifted up to appropriate hiring manager

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire and KEEP people instead of continually spewing them out.

    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.
