    Pros

    Discover is great company that truly values their employees. They provide great health and financial benefits. They also have a wonderful headquarter office with nice services such as a gym, ATMs, dry cleaning, mail service and full cafeteria. They recently opened a satellite office in Downtown Chicago by the Merchandise Mart. Employees can work there a few days a week which really helps to alleviate the pains of commuting if you live in the city! There is a lot of opportunity to move positions within the company to get a wide range of skills and experience to help you grow your career.

    Cons

    With any large corporation, there tends to be a lot of red tape. Discover is no exception. There are a lot of approvals and compliance requirements that can make it difficult to get new ideas and projects approved. It also makes timelines for everyday projects longer.
