I worked at Discovery Communications full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Smart, creative people. There are a lot of really talented programmers at Discovery, and they deliver results for the networks.

Cons

CEO David Zaslov comes from the GE school of management where those who don't move up are "pruned" from the organization. This happens frequently, which can be un-nerving for some.

    Lots of layers to pass through during approval process. Some processes are so ingrained that it's hard to effect meaningful change. Could use some perks.

    I worked at Discovery Communications part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great time working as an intern at Discovery. The staff is very friendly. The people I interacted with were more than willing to help!
    I had a couple of projects that I was working on- however, I could have handled additional responsibilities. However, the projects were in line with my experience and my manager was a great mentor!

    Cons

    Couldn't find a full-time job as they has no openings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!
