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

    Pros

    Shows are good every now and then, but its been more misses than hits due to short term planning and profit driven decision making.

    Cons

    Senior management is all about money and inept when it comes to media production. Constant shifts in decision making like what's occurring with OWN. Management is clueless about non-fiction media.

    Advice to Management

    Board of Directors may be better off replacing Zaslav and his minions. This guy came from NBC... now a last place network.
