    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
