I have been working at Discovery Communications full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

This place is great to work at, the people, the culture, the benefits. In my time woking at Discovery, I have been provided with the training and tools to allow me to grow, as well as the motivation in yearly bonuses to stay committed to do better every year.

Cons

You're never 100% happy with any job, but if I have to say that there's one thing I don't like about this company, it would have nothing to do with my job; I would like to get back the smart Discovery programming we used to have, and stop catering to the hillbilly audience. Again, that's just my own opinion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Watch Cosmos. Discovery should have done that, not NATGEO.

    I have been working at Discovery Communications as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Culture is great. Easy to learn and move. The company truly invests in you if you make the investment in them. I have loved every minute at Discovery. Aton of career guidance and introductions are offered.

    Cons

    Take advantage of everything offered as an intern. It seems like it is less accessible if you get hired full time regarding introductions and "special' treatment.

    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.
