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

Pros

I worked as a temp, however, based on what I'd seen, it is very corporate with additional benefits as an entertainment environment.

Cons

Typical corporate politics, however, very entertaining.

    Pros

    Great company, looks good on resume.

    Cons

    Keep your head down, do your job and don't ask too many questions - then you'll have a a job for a many years with no prospect for a promotion. The company feels so big that no one is paying attention or looking out for the little guy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting your friends and reward good employees.
