Brand Marketing at it's Best!

Former Employee - Senior Associate in Riverwoods, IL
Former Employee - Senior Associate in Riverwoods, IL

I worked at Discover full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Company-wide, the branded experience is preached through and through. Best marketers. Best brand marketers. User-centered design is preached through and through. Despite being a financial focused company, Discover has access to some of the best innovation UX design-wise.

Cons

Little to no focus on external multicultural efforts, or internal diversity programs. Some departments overwork their people, while others allow (and encourage) incompetence to stay and flourish. The priority on marketing leaves little room for back-end innovation, and marketers seem to make the "tech calls" when they are not qualified to do so. Can be clique'y.

Advice to Management

Listen with your ears and with your hearts to what the unstated needs for your employees are. Some employees have great ideas that don't get past their managers. Create a more open, diversity-inclusive environment.
