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

    Pros

    The teams are great and the atmosphere is friendly than a lot of huge entertainment companies. The people like to teach interns and help them to learn. Part of the culture is a lot of interns come back and become full-time employees after their internship!

    Cons

    The salary is not so competitive compared to what other big names such as Disney are offering.
