    The benefits package at Discovery was probably the best I've ever had in my career, so far. They treat their employees well (from a benefits package perspective) but with such high turn-over and a constantly changing approach to their businesses, it's not a place a lot of people desire to stay very long. The average, I'd say, is 3-5 years max, unless you're a VP, in which case, you'll do almost anything to stay.

    The best thing about the benefits package at Discovery Communications - Cheap life insurance & great coverage thru UHG The best or worst thing about the benefits package at Discovery Communications - the work life balance all work no life so you cannot take advantage of the tuition reimbursement. Also some benefits are only for Silver Springs, NY & LA locations, so the remainder of the company misses out.

    nothing was offered, was an intern with Discovery so benefits arent relevant to me. 11/hr wage and nothing included on top of that.

    Best health insurance ever! A lot of in-network doctors & affordable deductibles to specialists like chiropractors. Also includes $25 fitness reimbursement.
