I worked at Discovery Communications full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Smart, talented people who are passionate about creating very engaging, quality content. State of the art studio and access to tons of great resources.

Cons

Lots of layers to pass through during approval process. Some processes are so ingrained that it's hard to effect meaningful change. Could use some perks.

    I worked at Discovery Communications part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great time working as an intern at Discovery. The staff is very friendly. The people I interacted with were more than willing to help!
    I had a couple of projects that I was working on- however, I could have handled additional responsibilities. However, the projects were in line with my experience and my manager was a great mentor!

    Cons

    Couldn't find a full-time job as they has no openings.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
