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

Pros

Great work ethics. People have been there forever so it's like a big family. Nice people. Excellent benefits and pay. Beautiful offices. Great HR department.

Cons

Very resistant to change. Extremely territorial. People work on silos. No synergies among departments. It's a company that does not believe/invest in digital. Old fashion way of thinking when it comes to original production. Limited growth opportunities. Could be frustrating if you come from an organization that values reinvention and change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop comparing against your own benchmarks. Start looking to other metrics, not only ratings.

    Pros

    - Great perks

    Cons

    - Feel like just a cog, very replaceable and undervalued
    - Low pay
    - Boring; management unresponsive when asked for more responsibility
    - I feel like my brain is rotting
    - Generally unorganized and no communication between teams and groups

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your new employees! They could be the ones to stay with the company and shape it in the future, but the turnover rate is so high...

    Pros

    Good company and better-than-average benefits (though definitely, no Google or Facebook!)

    Cons

    Hard to get your foot in the door

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bonus paid out to employees at one network shouldn't be contingent on the success of a sister network
