    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Casual family oriented environment. Core values matter. Knoxville is a great place to live.

    Cons

    Getting progressively more "corporate". True innovation is a thing of the past. If it doesn't boost the bottom line for the quarterly earning report it is unimportant.

    Advice to Management

    Enjoy your new overlords at Discovery.

    I worked at Scripps Networks Interactive (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and paid time off.

    Cons

    Very little transparency with management. Millennial get stuck in positions with great pay, but very little opportunity for growth or movement. This makes it hard to leave because a lot of places don't pay as well. It's also very "southern" in the sense that people don't tell you if there are problems, they discuss it behind your back.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on ways to engage and maintain millennial work force.

    I have been working at Scripps Networks Interactive full-time

    Pros

    Pay is great. Bonuses are good (for now). Generally, good work/life balance.

    Cons

    I wish I could stress lack of diversity even more. Being someone of color, I cannot relate to a lot of my coworkers. How the company feels about diversity as a whole is shameful. They have it as a core value but never follow through. Especially working in the lifestyle space, they seem to only care about upper middle class white women. It's a very sad.

    Advice to Management

    Please actually follow through with hiring more people of color. You will not succeed in the long run without doing so.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, everyone willing to "pitch in" to meet goals; a growth company in the media space; interesting work; good benefits; often promotes internally

    Cons

    Being purchased by Discovery, uncertain what will be kept / lost under the new entity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing; try to convince Discovery to keep doing what you are doing...

    Pros

    The people are friendly and laid back. The hours and work load are reasonable.

    Cons

    Very bizarre upper management on my team. Click-ish, and managers are defensive ego maniacs with very poor communication skills. They say one thing and do another. There is no pathway to expand your responsibilities or grow in terms of position or salary no matter how well you are performing. Upper management likes who they like and thats it. Double standards all over the place.
