Experience as an Intern

Operations Intern, Discovery Education (Former Employee)
Silver Spring, MD

Pros-Great Internship program, I got to do informational interviews with people from other departments. Every week they had heads of departments or networks tell us about what they do and tips for working in the industry

Cons-I honestly really enjoyed my experience as an intern. I didn't really have a bad experience.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
