A great career path

I started out at Discovery as a call centre agent. I was given the tools to grow, and I was encouraged to grow. I progressed through to a senior management role with excellent support from my teams and managers. It is a great place to work, and I enjoyed my tenure there.

Pros

Growth and support

Great company

I love Discovery. As a financial advisor, you work on commission only. The industry is tough, but if you want to be in the industry, Discovery is the place to be.

Pros

Excellent training

Cons

Commission only

Very Challenging work place.

Workings hours on average is 9 hours a day. Target and quality driven environment with quick turn around times for investigations and enquiries. Planning and organizing of work is extremely important. Selling yourself, your expertise and knowledge to the different Departments and to keep their confidence is difficult but challenging. Consistent progress feedback is of the utmost importance. Training of employees in other Departments of your capabilities as fraud specialist, winning their confidence and identification of fraud and/or red flags indicating potential fraud, keeping them informed of the latest trends and is very important. Keep the Departments satisfied with your product. The best part of the job is the freedom to do what you do best, with minimum interference from Management.

Pros

Job security and satisfaction.

Cons

Office politics, favouritism.

Promising Oppertunity

Large corporate environment where one has great independence with personal responsibility to deliver and meet targets. Very helpful colleagues. Understanding seniors. Definitely a promising opportunity to get experience and grow in financial system development. Although tasks as a junior are somewhat boring. Being underestimated by not being handed larger and more interesting projects. However it is expected in a large corporation as a junior.

Pros

Growth

Cons

Boring tasks
