I worked at Discovery Communications full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Strong Leadership. Great focus and a leader in the international cable market. Forward thinking. Great people and a fun environment to work.

Cons

Limited growth opportunities in the regional markets. Not a lot of opportunity to advance once at a certain level. A lot of change in the IT/Digital area.

Advice to Management

Keep the focus on growth and innovation and make sure to involve employees at all levels.

    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

    I worked at Discovery Communications full-time

    Pros

    Being part of a larger media company is great and helps provide access to great people to support the business. Built close relationships with key leaders in US public schools Could be an amazing company if there was a good executive management team in place. Enjoyed working with a great team of people.

    Cons

    No hope of anyone getting promoted who is not a friend from Pennsylvania with the Sales Head (if you are sky's the limit!). Discovery Education makes a lot of poor products, unfortunately not any really great innovative products. Morale is extremely bad. Senior management spends all its time trying to sell the employees on how great Discovery Education is instead of trying to actually be great.

    Advice to Management

    Promotions should be based on accomplishments and not being childhood friends with Senior Management. Management should focus on developing great products and really innovative instead of pretending to innovate. Fresh Senior Management needs to be brought in.
