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

    Pros

    Top rated programming, great brands, supportive work environemnt, challenging. Discover is a great place to launch your media career. Great corporate culture, management puts great emphasis on work, life balance.

    Cons

    The career path for someone in Ad Sales is very clear but seems very hard to actually move up in rank to become an Account Executive. Some of the work performed by Sales Assistants seems a bit mind numbing.


  2. "Great company to work for with wonderful work-life balance, however, not a lot of room for growth."

    I have been working at Discovery Communications full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great with awesome benefits. They have a great maternity program and offer quite a few extra programs (like exercise classes or seminars) at no cost to the employee.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for career growth. Job description does not reflect the position and we do not get credit for the work we are doing by senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Review growth options for all employees
