I have been working at Discovery Communications full-time for more than a 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.
