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

    Pros

    Great company, who provides great benefits, 20 days PTO, health, dental, disability, etc. Great 401K

    Cons

    Salary is lower then other options, raises are very very low even when you are a top performer every month. $.35 for a yearly raise! While the CEO took a record bonus that year.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to remember who actually provides customers with their great customer service. Provide more growth opportunities for employees, rather then hiring managers from outside the company.

    Pros

    Nice Gym, Decent Benefits, good location to public transportation

    Cons

    DFS version of Diversity = Majority of workers are Temporary Chinese, Indian, Eastern European!
    Minority of Workers are Anglo-American, African- American, Asian-American, Hispanic American, Arab American. I am all for diversity but this form of diversity breeds a culture of identured servitude.

    The commnication barriers create major problems as not only is it hard to understand some of the dialects, it is very hard for the Temp workers to understand "normal" english and this creates a lot of time wasted for everyone. This temp - cheap worker strategy ends up being "penny wise-pound foolish strategy, Discover has made a big comeback but they should remeber who there customers are and hire accordingly.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit more Amercians and hire more minorities in management which there are very few at Discover even though they hail thier Diversity program as being top notch due to all the foreign temp workers they hire!
