Pros

I worked as a temp, however, based on what I'd seen, it is very corporate with additional benefits as an entertainment environment.

Cons

Typical corporate politics, however, very entertaining.

    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 Management

    Stop promoting your friends and reward good employees.

    Pros

    Discovery has great brands, most of which you can be proud to represent! The company is truly global, and there is a lot going on...everywhere. Benefits are strong, and the corporate culture is almost great.

    Cons

    The company is almost great. Unfortunately, the gap between good and great doesn't seem to ever close. The emphasis on making it great for the employees will likely never be there as long as the financial results remain strong and people stay put. If it ain't broke...

    Advice to Management

    Consider sharing the successes of the company with those who deliver the success. If not with money, with more complete programs that are actually supported by all levels.
