Pros

Competitive salary, generous time off, dynamic and exciting workload

Cons

Greatest flaw that comes to mind is the use of Windows XP and MS Office 2003. Were told upgrades to Windows 7 and Office 2010 upcoming, but nothing yet.

    Pros

    Discover provides housing in a top-notch extended stay hotel for the entire summer, with some meals provided. The work environment is warm and welcoming throughout the entire campus. You are provided a mentor that is there to help and talk to you whenever you need it. You will not feel lost at any point, because the people you work with will help you with anything that you need. The campus also has a huge food court, several small shops with treats/food/drinks. It also has a fitness center that is very convenient. The people are very easy to talk to and get along with. The recruiting supervisor is absolutely the best. She makes the experience top-notch and extremely enjoyable with intern events planned all throughout the summer. Being able to hang out with other interns also makes its a great summer. You will make many new friends and have experiences with them that you will never forget. Truthfully an amazing summer for an intern.

    Cons

    Upper management is fairly distant from employees and they have a hard time acting on feedback and suggestions given to them by employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, and actually follow through with promises that are made. Take suggestions/criticism and use them to your benefit.

    Pros

    Excellent vacation time, good people, stress free environment, manageable work schedule, good employee perks, amazing campus, good compensation, understanding business partners.

    Cons

    Compensation could be better, upper management avoids listening to lower level employees, far to get to, uneducated business partners, bad cafeteria food.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to lower level employees. Make decisions based on established results and not on personal, subjectivity. Use existing capital to hire more people to better disperse the work.
