    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 have been working at Discovery Communications full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits package, Great individuals in the company, super flexible with location, telecommute options are fantastic.

    Cons

    Management is a mess with zero long term direction. Everything changes from quarter to quarter. Zero process control on their SDLC. No ability to prioritize. Zero understanding of leading edge technologies. Company is top heavy. Too many useless meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Look at industry leaders. Stop trying to save a buck immediately and look long term. Without a long term strategy, Discovery will become obsolete and unable to compete. Agile isn't working for you. The SDLC is a mess. There are too many kinks in your digital supply chain. There are not enough people on the ground actually DOING work. Use time tested examples to provide a basis for moving forward and stick with it. Otherwise the scrambling will continue until there is no money left.
