The team I was on was absolutely great, they gave me plenty to work on and kept me involved with all sorts of tasks. The interns all lived together in an extended stay hotel which was basically a resort. So there was always something to do after work that was fun.

Downers

The pay is not exceptional. It by no means is low just not crazy. And the start up process upon starting the internship can be a little slow for some to get work.

Advice to Potential Interns

Discover is a great place to work. But to get the most out of it you need to be proactive. Always ask questions and always ask for more stuff to do. You wont learn anything by just sitting at your desk doing nothing.

Would You Recommend

Yes
