      Stay Away - Horrid Culture

      Pros

      - Big Brand - Work In Tech

      Cons

      The leadership and managers at discovery education are horrifying, and I can't recommend staying away enough. I have never seen adults so immature and demeaning. If you are evaluating this as a prospective employer, I'd pass.

      Pros

      You can make money if you’re in the right part of the country.

      Cons

      Nepotism galore. If you’re a friend of the CEO you will do well and tell senior leadership exactly what they want to hear.

      Great mission and passionate people

      Pros

      Welcoming, kind, and enthusiastic people who are passionate about education. With a lot of colleagues who have background in education, you can always count on people to be patient and collaborative.

      Cons

      Naturally, there are growing pains. Leadership wants to do the right thing, but given the size of the company, some decisions and processes default to being bureaucratic.

      A talented product team to learn and grow with

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Overall great company company to work at. The products are very impressive and I generally enjoy who I work with - overall very talented people. It is a great step in my career to learn and grow within a larger product organization with a vision everyone is working towards collectively. A real focus on community and inclusivity is pretty important, in addition to being open about back to work-covid guidelines.

      Cons

      what exactly will the culture be like as DE returns back to the office - with a variety of employees working remote. How will they be included in company events?
