"It truly depends on your manager and whether he/she will allow you to work from home more than once a week or take advantage of the satellite office downtown. In my experience, my management has been very accommodating with my schedule when I needed flexibility, but I know this doesn't happen for everyone."

"I believe the policy has changed since I left the company. I believe it is more generous in that instead of getting 60% of pay during the first six weeks, you can get more than that. Men can also now take advantage of paternity leave, too."
Would you recommend Discover Financial Services to other women?
"Discover offers great benefits such as 25 PTO days off the bat, medical/dental, 401K, tuition reimbursement, an on-site gym, a satellite office downtown. However, in my experience, I have encountered situations where pay has been unequal and when a promotion is given to men over women when it was clear that the women deserved it more."

"I've worked there almost 10 years. In that time I haven't seen as many women as men move into upper manage my positions. Discover does have great community groups and diversity and they do a great job of work life balance but it still feels like women get shorted in the promotion area."
