    Great company to work for with wonderful work-life balance, however, not a lot of room for growth.

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

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great with awesome benefits. They have a great maternity program and offer quite a few extra programs (like exercise classes or seminars) at no cost to the employee.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for career growth. Job description does not reflect the position and we do not get credit for the work we are doing by senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review growth options for all employees
