“Being part of something bigger than yourself”


Name: Jessica
Job Title: Lead Auditor, Internal Audit

As an auditor, I serve as the 3rd line of defense to make sure that Discover has controls in place to mitigate risk for both our customers and the organization. Internal Audit is the voice of reason for the organization. We are passionate about the success of Discover products, processes, and controls. Although we are independent, we are very much a part of the team.

What’s a typical day for you?

Every day, I get to ask the question, “What are we doing to mitigate risk?” I also have the chance to LEARN and be CHALLENGED. No one day is the same and I love getting to meet so many people across the organization and hear about the role they play in making Discover possible for our customers.

Regardless of my level in the company, I never feel like I can’t effectively challenge management or voice my concerns. I have been in tons of meetings where I’ve been told by members of our leadership team to CHALLENGE them, rather than just agreeing outright.

What’s it like working in Internal Audit?

Discover makes you feel like you are a part of something bigger than yourself. We are more than just our products. I honestly can’t believe I have been with the company for three years. The best part about working here is that I never wake-up dreading going to work. It’s truly an amazing feeling when you can be happy at work even during the stressful times. I always know I will be working with a team of dedicated people to solve problems.
