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

Pros

The people are smart and the company invests in keeping its employees happy and healthy so that their effectiveness is maximized.

Cons

Hard to get promoted, and the bottom line is always looming. Layoffs happen quickly and quietly, which creates a great deal of anxiety around personal performance.

    Cons

    - Feel like just a cog, very replaceable and undervalued

    - I feel like my brain is rotting
    - Generally unorganized and no communication between teams and groups

    Advice to Management

    Value your new employees! They could be the ones to stay with the company and shape it in the future, but the turnover rate is so high...
