    I worked at Discover full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, decent base salary (was $10.00 an hour as of early 2013) for an entry level position and very good commission based compensation for those who excel at the job. Business model is one of honesty and transparency for the most part. Branch leadership was fairly strong.

    Cons

    Completely results driven. If you aren't one of the better performers, you aren't seeing a whole lot more than that $10.00/hr base. A lot of pressure to meet daily call count/ talk time thresholds. Environment can feel hyper competitive. Once you acquire the licenses to legally do the job, you are on the phone (thrown to the wolves so to speak). **Actual SALES training is insufficient at best. I cannot emphasize this enough.**

    Advice to Management

    Improve the transition from studying for/ passing NMLS License exams into the actual job. Sales Managers are stretched FAR too thin to be able to offer the type of sales training each individual needs.

    I have been working at Discover full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company is good to employees. Work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    Some managers are incompetent, very subjective and not willing to own up to their mistakes. Company is very conservative and not willing to try new things.

    Advice to Management

    Be more objective and open to diversity.
