    I worked at Discover as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The office environment is amazing! Everyone is so welcoming and laid back, while still being very professional and productive. All of the interns receive 3 days of orientation and training, which really helps provide background knowledge to the work you perform throughout the summer.

    Cons

    There were times when I did not have any work to do because I had finished all of the projects assigned to me and no one else had anything for me to do. For the majority of the time, however, it was an appropriate workload

    I worked at Discover full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible schedule. Enjoyed work from home marketing position. The people I worked for and with were great and felt like family within a short amount of time. Easy to connect with. The training provided was very thorough and I felt ready to hit the ground running.

    Cons

    Daily travel was sometimes lonely and long days of driving. Not enough work from home opportunities, so the contract position ended sooner than planned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be great if they would extend more positions to telecommute in more than just major metropolitan cities.

    Pros

    I think that Discover has a great work/life balance. Not only do you start off with 25 days PTO, but there is also opportunity to work from home.

    Cons

    The salary could be a little more competitive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your HR department so that you can improve retention
