I worked at Discovery Communications as a contractor

Pros

It's such a large company that once you get in, you're pretty much set. The benefits are good.

Cons

While the benefits are good, some of the salaries for some of the contract workers are definitely less than the standard.

    I worked at Discovery Communications as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great program with tons of learning opportunities. The final presentation at the end of the summer was great and got to do a lot. Great entry if you want to go into Ad Sales.

    Cons

    They get busy so sometimes you have to find stuff to do.
    Not paid in NYC is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Management was great and met with the interns a lot. Zaslav met with us a few times.
