Great Place to Work Overall

Sales (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at Discovery Communications

ProsGreat benefits, brand recognition allows for easier sales opportunities, great support, nice people, great marketing & resources at your disposal.

ConsThey reward selfishness. Transparency is lacking, so many people cheat their way up easily. Some VPs, Directors, Managers should not be in the positions that they are in, it seems like they are not qualified or competent, making their teams suffer. Not much room for promotion.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease stop rewarding selfishness. Transparency is lacking, so many people cheat their way up easily. It turns off people who are team players and get burned.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Pros: Outstanding benefits Great coworkers Well known and respected product Cons: Executive leadership treats workers as expendable pieces Programming has gone down… Advice to Senior Management: Focus more on treating your workers with respect.
