Marketing Project Manager (Current Employee), Silver Spring, MDFebruary 11, 2014
Its very much like a college campus with various events each week. But, the downside is the office politics. Because everyone is young and eager to grow, they don't mind stepping on toes (with a smile).

Fun place but limited growth
Manager - IT Internal Audit (Former Employee), Silver Spring, MDFebruary 7, 2014
Pros: on-site health center, cafeteria, childcare (not cheap though), people
Cons: limited promotions, hierarchical mentality
Discovery, the home of Honey Boo Boo, Mythbusters, Deadliest Catch and so on, is an enormously fun place to work. You will learn a great deal about the reality TV market and watch as this company just grows!

The people are interesting, everyone is very personable and open to making even the most mundane idea a great one.

However, management direction – more... is not always consistent or clear. What may seem like a fairly straightforward task can turn into the biggest nightmare created. I would say more, but not here.

Everyone agrees the benefits are the biggest draw. On-site childcare, an on-site health center with free prescriptions refills, excellent training opportunities and frequent events to keep everyone connected all serve to make it hard to leave. – less
