I worked at Discovery Communications as a contractor for less than a year

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.

    I worked at Discovery Communications full-time for 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.
