I worked at Discovery Communications full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Very fun to be part of its mission. Growth potential and benefits are strong. Nominally very employee-friendly. Global reach. The pros of this company are very strong.

Cons

Most of the stock's growth benefits the already-rich shareholder/owners and very top management, as you can see from company reports. A lot of people get laid off every year, and anybody at the senior VP level is vulnerable to a salary purge. Compensation is lop-sided in favor of the inner circle.

Advice to Management

Spread the wealth and listen to your people more.
