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

Pros

Top rated programming, great brands, supportive work environemnt, challenging. Discover is a great place to launch your media career. Great corporate culture, management puts great emphasis on work, life balance.

Cons

The career path for someone in Ad Sales is very clear but seems very hard to actually move up in rank to become an Account Executive. Some of the work performed by Sales Assistants seems a bit mind numbing.

    Pros

    Strong Leadership. Great focus and a leader in the international cable market. Forward thinking. Great people and a fun environment to work.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities in the regional markets. Not a lot of opportunity to advance once at a certain level. A lot of change in the IT/Digital area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the focus on growth and innovation and make sure to involve employees at all levels.

    I worked at Discovery Communications full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great company, looks good on resume.

    Cons

    Keep your head down, do your job and don't ask too many questions - then you'll have a a job for a many years with no prospect for a promotion. The company feels so big that no one is paying attention or looking out for the little guy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting your friends and reward good employees.
