2012 Top Places to Work in PR: Discovery Communications

Discovery Communications 

Discovery offers a formalized communication vehicle between employees and managers via its Global Performance Management System (GPS). GPS creates a partnership between the employee and his or her manager where each party shares the mutual goal of managing performance for success. 

Discovery is also a longtime leader in employee benefits. In addition to the many customary benefits most companies offer, Discovery has a veritable buffet of non-traditional programs and benefits, including on-site Wellness Centers in Silver Spring, Maryland, Sterling, Virginia, New York and Miami. Additionally, employees can take advantage of workplace flexibility, commuter reimbursements for walking shoes and bicycles, on-site massage therapy, dry cleaning service and discounted car washing just to name a few.

Discovery's total compensation package includes a competitive base salary, annual incentive program, and a long-term incentive plan. Of particular note is the annual incentive program that all Discovery employees are eligible for, provided that they are not on a sales commission plan.
