Pros

Excellent Benefits. Pay not comparable to freelance work, but benefits compensate. Highly inclusive environment, very creative, excellent management across the board.

Cons

When networks don't perform according to expectation, there's very little support or encouragement given - it's either silence, or simply layoffs. It's the nature of the business. Be prepared to work hard, but you need to remain creatively fresh or you're toast.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    none
