    I have been working at Scripps Networks Interactive full-time

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and fantastic location

    Cons

    Very competitive environment, and it can make it difficult to move up without moving into other departments too quickly.

    never sell to a big corporation

    I worked at Scripps Networks Interactive full-time

    Pros

    Really enjoyed working on some of the brands here.

    Cons

    What can you say about a company with aspirations to be a big media player in a not so big media market?

    Advice to Management

    None to give. They never listened anyway.

    Discovery transition is changing the culture.

    Speed up the Discovery

    Pros

    Easy commute, great area, work life balance,

    Cons

    Slackers take advantage of work life balance and do little to nothing. If you are gay or a woman you have a greater chance at promotion. Discovery takeover has most employees spooked, so attitudes and morale are dropping.

    I worked at Scripps Networks Interactive full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart people doing great things. Brands you can really be proud of - as soon as you say HGTV, Food Network, Travel Channel, someone will say "oh, I love that network."

    Cons

    Passive aggressive environment that passes itself off as "nice." Discovery acquisition created huge upheaval and no matter how many times you say "our cultures are the same," they aren't.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Great place to network. Some really smart people work here. A lot of coworkers are willing to help you cross train to learn new skills. Sometimes you’ll get to meet on-air talent. On campus food network kitchen.

    Cons

    Some people get away with doing nothing. You’ll have to pick up their slack. If you have to work on a holiday you won’t get paid extra.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees suggestions on work flow. Don’t be so secretive about the change coming up with discovery. Help your employees move up.

    Pros

    Unbelievable talent throughout every level and every department of the company. The company culture is unlike any other I've experienced. We also stand behind some of the best brands on TV.

    Cons

    There truly are no cons.


  10. "Fun Environment, Little HR Presence"

    Pros

    open communication with upper management
    frequent company events with a budget for "fun" activities
    heavy support of work/life balance

    Cons

    silos create for an uncomfortably competitive/not collaborative work environment
    sales takes priority over compassion - which results in a corrupt HR system that "ignores" those who succeed but misbehave

    Advice to Management

    remember life before you were where you are and what it felt like to be treated by someone with zero respect for those who got them where they are
