Retired Naval Officer, Soccer Enthusiast, and Product Manager

Name: Anthony R.
Job Title: Product Manager, Network Services, Infrastructure Services, BT

Wanting to grow and lead.

My team is responsible for delivering reliable, robust and emerging network services to our consumers and customers. We have matured the network to meet rapidly changing business requirements through numerous optimization and automation efforts. We’re extremely proud of our contributions in this regard.

Taking every opportunity.

Discover makes every effort to grow the knowledge and the professional careers of its employees. I came to Discover for the opportunities, both to grow and to lead, and I’ve had every training opportunity necessary for myself and my team to be successful.  I’ve attended technical training, seminars and tech-talk meet-ups all highly supported here at Discover. Through our joint success, I’ve been given increased opportunity and responsibility, which I’m really excited about.

Giving others an opportunity.

One of the opportunities I had was to be part of our diversity & inclusion efforts. For two years running I am a part of the Network Service Product Family where we focus on recruiting Hispanic/Latino tech talent. I believe that a more diverse organization leads to a greater understanding of an ever-changing customer demographic. As a Latino myself, I feel that it’s important to participate and help create these opportunities for men and women that are under-represented in technology and leadership.

A rewarding place to work.

Discover is the third corporate enterprise that I’ve been employed with, and I can truly say that it is far and away the most rewarding of them. The culture is challenging, hard-working and rewarding. Discover really encourages change and new ways of thinking. We’re all encouraged to bring forth ideas, big and small. We’re also given a safe environment to be constructive when a situation calls for it.

Grow and Move


Name: Kirsten D.
Job Title: MBA Marketing Leadership Program Management

To Michigan and back

When looking for internships during my first year of the MBA program at University of Michigan, I found, at the time, Program. I was looking for a marketing internship at a very customer-focused company and from the description of the role and company, Discover looked to be like a really good fit. The interviews were tough, but I also got a great feeling from my interviewers that Discover was a great place to work. After landing the internship, I spent my summer in Consumer Insights, a department that focuses on market and consumer research, and absolutely loved the role, the company and the opportunities.

Growth & mobility

Since the Marketing Internship Program, I’ve become part of the  MBA Leadership Program, I have seen multiple sides of the business and have gained a variety of different skills and knowledge that have been incredibly helpful in my professional development. I really feel like Discover is different from other companies in that there are options for moving around the company and pivoting your role and/or career.

Assessing risk every day

My department partners to help manage risk in a variety of ways. Specifically, my team works with project on their new initiative, whether that’s an entirely new product or a modification to a current product, to assess the risks involved and help think through the plan to mitigate those risks. We provide guidance to our business partners to help ensure that they have the right connections and tools, and are thinking through the right things to make sure that their initiative is successful.

Empowered employees

Discover is a great place to work with a lot of different opportunities to stretch and challenge yourself. It’s also a place that really values its employees. I’ve always felt like I had a voice to share my thoughts and solutions and that I have always been empowered to work through problems on my own or when needed, raise my hand to ask for help.
