Discover provides the necessary tools for both employees new to the industry and those with high tenure that allow for constant development and personal growth. The company strives to build a culture of diversity and inclusion while teaching employees to make the world a better place. It defines that of a company whose focus is its customers, employees, and its community.
Working at Discover Financial Services was extremely stressful. The management pushes to have employee performance stats at peak capabilities, which isn't a bad thing, but too many factors are out of an employees control and can't be fixed by doing an impeccable job. Incentive is heavily weighted by customer survey reviews, but even if an employee did their job correctly, went above and beyond to inform and help the customer with their needs, if the customer still doesn't feel that they were treated the right way, an employee's incentive gets blasted into oblivion with no hope to get it back for another three months. The only positive part about working at Discover was working with fun and energetic people.
