Former Contractor Project Manager

Project Manager (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA

ProsThe pay at SVB is competitive.

ConsThe management team in IT and the PMO are incompetent, lack management and people skills and play favoritism. The existing processes are broken but they are not open to suggestions or recommendations from employees. I’m so glad to be out of that place because the environment is toxic.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease listen to your employees when they bring their concerns in regards to poor management and work environment. The #1 reason people leave their job is due to a BAD boss!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great people, but way too political.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    I have been working at Silicon Valley Bank full-time for more than 8 years


    Pros: Great, friendly, smart, motivated people. Small enough that you can have an impact. Amazing benefits. Cool… Cons: Clique-y with clear favorites, which has increased in the last year. Really want you to drink the kool-aid instead of think out of the box. Not good… Advice to Senior Management: You have great people. Use them. Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
