I have been working at Discovery Communications full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great brand and niche with a strong differentiators. The company keeps up with technology and has decent executive perks. Discovery is now investing in acquisitions and expansion internationally which will help solidify the brand internationally.

Cons

Been cost cutting for years in the USA. This often means that those that have stayed are very political and may be in roles for relationship reasons, rather than expertise. This also means that there are many competing groups within Discovery that often would rather deal with an outside company than with an internal group.

Advice to Management

Keep growing internationally and have a single view of international rather than the competing businesses.
