    Pros

    Discover is a great company to work for. The culture is good they try to make it as fun as possible with contests and games. Which definitly helps because it can be a stressful job. The pay is great and benefits as well! Easy to get promoted.

    Cons

    Its very stressful, not something for everyone, back to back calls sometimes it feels like there is no time to breath.

    Pros

    Discover has a very unique environment. They believe that if they treat their employees well then in turn we will treat the customers well, which in turn will make the company money. It has been working for them. They have a wide range of opportunities. You are able to move around very easily from team to team.

    Discover has an open door policy. Everyone is very friendly and willing to help, it has a great culture.

    Cons

    For the most part I have not seen many cons to working for Discover. The company is very meeting centered, so at times it makes your days/weeks very stressful but that is to be expected at most jobs.

    Work/life balance is great. 25 PTO days and great work from home options. Benefits are great. Friendly people, culture is very relaxed.

    If you start here, your salary is lower than someone who got hired externally. Political environment and middle management in IT is not trained in how to manage employees.

    Pros

    I liked working at Discover. There is plenty opportunity to grow with in the company. There is some one always there to help and they want you to succeed. You also get benefits which is a plus.

    Cons

    The job can be repetitive. I also didnt think their grading system on phone calls was just.
