One of the most coveted employers in cable, Discovery continues to offer some of the most progressive and generous benefits as it consistently attracts top-notch talent. The economy may be shaky, but Discovery’s stock keeps rising both literally and figuratively as CEO David Zaslav offers clear direction and displays a knack for putting the right executives in the right jobs to advance the business forward. That has meant considerable change at the Silver Spring-based programmer – but also renewed opportunities for those who share the vision and want to help propel Discovery to new heights. That includes the leadership pipeline for high talent/high potential employees, a leadership training curriculum, job rotations, and career coaching, among other initiatives. Its global MentorNet program also offers employees a way to learn their peers in a structured, five-month experience, and its diversity programs are among the best. In fact, about half of Discovery’s managers are women and roughly one third are from minority populations. And how about a 401K plan that lets employees invest up to 40 percent of their base pay, with a 100 percent match on the first 3 percent and 50 percent match on the next 3 percent? Not bad at all. And Discover Your Impact Day is an award-winning effort that encourages volunteerism and camaraderie among Discovery workers. Overall, a darned great place to work.
