  1.  

    Obscenely high salaries for highest executives; benefits and work-life balance are quite good for average pay employees.

    I have been working at Discovery Communications as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Top rated programming, great brands, supportive work environment, challenging. Discovery is a place where you can be challenged but also supported in your efforts. The company has great equity in their brands and they seek new avenues for growth.

    Cons

    All companies have their downsides. Discovery offers so many positives for it's employees it's hard to say where it lacks. They could subsidize their on site restaurant a little for the employees…that would be nice.
