I have been working at Silicon Valley Bank

Pros

One of the best reasons is the flexibility. The management team is also good at communicating most of the important information to employees.

Cons

Not everyone is qualified to be in their current positions and with the market the way it's trending their skills (or lack thereof) will show.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To the management team: know that compensation is generally below market so stay flexible and keep up the positive culture.

    I have been working at Silicon Valley Bank

    Pros

    Good benefits package. Smart CIO. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Too much politics
    Sr. Mgmt incompetent and un-trustworthy
    No work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CIO needs to complete revamp his Sr. Mgmt team. They are extremely political, and do not inspire trust. All of them have their own agenda's, which completely screws rest of the organization. They just know how to 'talk' smart, but are full of BS.
