    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.

    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.
