Former Employee - Ad Sales Intern in New York, NY

I worked at Discovery Communications as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Great program with tons of learning opportunities. The final presentation at the end of the summer was great and got to do a lot. Great entry if you want to go into Ad Sales.

Cons

They get busy so sometimes you have to find stuff to do.
Not paid in NYC is difficult.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management was great and met with the interns a lot. Zaslav met with us a few times.
