    I worked at Discovery Communications full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I was worried every day that someone might find me promotable.

    Cons

    Primadonna attitudes abound at this, "better than you," employer. Don't bother sharing fresh ideas or think outside the box, you are sure to be shunned for it. It's everyone for himself here, although they pride themselves on their non-existant teamwork. Don't expect anyone to," have your back." You're on your own...
