Company Culture

Collaborative!

Environmental Friendliness

Recycling everywhere!

Work-Life Balance

Calls can be stressful

Job Security

Very stable!

Challenging Work

Some positions require emotional intelligence and critical thinking skills

Suggestions for improvement

  • Work on the work-life balance and don't put so much as an emphasis on results.

What I like about the company

Discover was supportive when I wanted to go back to school and worked around my schedule. They were accommodating when I had personal matters to deal with. They have excellent opportunities for overtime and other benefits.

What I dislike about the company

The competitiveness and negative attitudes towards employees who aren't performing at the top trickle down. Leadership has a lot of pressure from department managers and some of them crack under pressure and say the wrong thing to the wrong person.

Company Culture

The culture is very corporate and competitive.

Support from management

The culture is very corporate and competitive.

Freedom to work independently

Very micro-managed

Internal Communication

They're very quick to tell you how badly you're doing.

Environmental Friendliness

Everything just gets thrown in the same dumpster.

Work-Life Balance

There is no schedule flexibility and they often change your shift/hours for "business need."

Job Security

The departments were constantly shifting and "streamlining"

Handicapped Accessibility

The building is very large and the elevators are often out of service.

Challenging Work

The work was simple enough, but management was all about the numbers.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Offer more schedule flexibility and stop expecting people to jump when you say to.

What I like about the company

Discover does offer many opportunities for education advancement.

What I dislike about the company

Care more about employees. You've got people having panic attacks in the hallways because you have no compassion.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would improve some of the benefits (e.g. reimbursable childcare expenses, daycare on site, etc.) and ensure that direct leadership is constantly keeping us abreast of what is happening within the larger department, as there is sometimes a disconnect.

What I like about the company

I have been given opportunities to move up within the company. I am getting 90% of my graduate degree paid for. The culture is fantastic and I feel truly valued and cared for as an employee. I know what is going on with the company and our strategy for the future. There is an amazing work-life balance and leadership understands that sometimes life happens!

What I dislike about the company

I wish we were reimbursed for daycare costs and that new initiatives did not take so long to implement.
