    I have been working at Discovery Communications full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employee benefits typical of a major corporation.
    Brand recognition.
    Some interesting assignments.
    Flexible working environment.
    Some helpful and knowledgeable people on staff. If you are lucky enough to work with them.

    Cons

    Continuous layoffs and restructuring.
    Digital is poorly managed with a direction that changes on almost a monthly basis.
    Poor communication between departments.
    Senior management have little interest in any employee outside of their current pet project.
    Work quality and experience largely irrelevant. Advancement based on trending projects and ability to schmooze your way onto the correct management radar.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying attention to all your employees. Learn their skills and how to relate to them in a knowledgeable manner. Find the best people for the job, not just those with the loudest voice or the most convenient.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
