    Pros

    Great benefits, most coworkers become your family.

    Cons

    If you want to get a promotion or get the opportunity to advance to another department you have to be great with politics. It’s not about your work ethic, years of experience, knowledge or by dominating your interview. Also the pay for what your job entails is way below what you deserve. Unless if you’ve succeeded in the politics within management then you most likely will get better pay. Also if your close with management and they like you, you’ll be able to get away with anything. Outcomes will be in your favor wether you abide by company rules and regulations or not. You’re only held accountable for your actions when you’re not close with management.

    I have been working at Discover full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits. Nice facilities, great gym. Historically very employee centric company that tries to instill good corporate values. Fun activities, relaxed dress code, move to more work life balance like allowing more flexible work arrangements. Support for volunteering activities and socially responsible. Good college tuition and advanced degree program offering.

    Cons

    With the new CEO there is a trend to hire more from the outside and there is a significant turnover at the VP and executive level. I have seen some really good employees and managers leave or being let go, but their external replacements are not necessarily better and many so called new "star"employees prove to be a failure and don't last long. Although HR talks about talent management and internal mobility, in reality there is very little happening in terms of internal career development and thoughtful rotations. Employees are left on their own to learn about new positions and apply. Most often external candidates are given preference simply because they are external. Employee loyalty is decreasing. There is not a clear vision strategically of where the company is going.

    Pros

    Good food, great benefits, perks for employees.

    Cons

    Horrible management, no value of new hires, no HR or higher leadership support, no room for learning; project/team is difficult. If you raise your voice against something wrong, management makes your life misserable and makes sure you ultimately leave the company.
