Major growth corporation still trying to act like a small small with executives not suited for globle business.

Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Discovery Communications full-time (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 Management

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 have been working at Discovery Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have a lot of amazing benefits and you only have to be in office two days a week. Boss leaves you alone and workload is very manageable.

    Cons

    Pay is low and not likely to go up much. With all the changes in cable business, I don't know the future of the company. No opportunities for promotion at least in the Atlanta office. Might be different in Silver Spring HQ.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your satellite offices like Atlanta. Feels like we're off in no man's land.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Love the people there. It's a really fun atmosphere that inspires creativity.

    Cons

    As with any large company, sometimes it might be difficult to see your full impact if you aren't in senior management.
