    Great culture and great benefits

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    Pros- great work culture: employee appreciation and engagement
    - good benefits: above average vacation days and they encourage work life balance
    - salary: pay is good

    Cons- The only negative for me is commute time from the city. However, they have a remote office in the city now which employees can use occasionally.

    I had a great experience as a forklift operator at Discover Financial Services.

    Forklift Operator (Former Employee)
    Memphis, TN

    ProsWhile working for Discover, there was a lot of room for growth. In doing my job as a forklift operator, I was given very good guidance by all of my supervisors.

    ConsThe most challenge that I had at Discover, was being able to adjust to a last minute schedule change.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhile working at Discover, we (employees), were able to go on a vacation within a six month time frame. Also, we were given a minimum of eight hour PTO time each pay period. These incentives encouraged you as an employee to maintain your employment. In other words, you were not given a reason to dislike the job.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
