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

    I worked at Discovery Communications as an intern for 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.

    I worked at Discovery Communications full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people are smart and the company invests in keeping its employees happy and healthy so that their effectiveness is maximized.

    Cons

    Hard to get promoted, and the bottom line is always looming. Layoffs happen quickly and quietly, which creates a great deal of anxiety around personal performance.
