    I worked at Discovery, Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Pretty good pay and benefits

    Cons

    Toxic culture and low morale. Very little autonomy, which hinders innovation. Leadership is pretty elusive and only swoop in when they need something. Not a good place to work if you want to grow creatively. Lots of turnover and HR is also pretty useless.
