I have been working at Discovery Communications full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Employees perks such as onsite health clinic.

Cons

Zero work/life balance where any addition employee perk could not even been enjoyed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is a lack of leadership in critical functions such as HR that significantly impacts middle management at this company. Talent retention (and not the people on the screens) is non-existent within in critical functions.

    I worked at Discovery Communications as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The teams are great and the atmosphere is friendly than a lot of huge entertainment companies. The people like to teach interns and help them to learn. Part of the culture is a lot of interns come back and become full-time employees after their internship!

    Cons

    The salary is not so competitive compared to what other big names such as Disney are offering.
