Great place to work!

Analyst (Current Employee)
Tempe, AZ

I have been working at Silicon Valley Bank full-time for more than 5 years

Pros-Tempe operation top notch, great vibe and the two senior mangers running it are genuine & competent. If you take a job here, get based there!
-Focused group of banking professionals, they stick with what they know best and avoid risky adventures.
-Exciting global opportunities for the right candidates
-New IT culture taking root--incompetent Snr. Managers are gone for the most part and the organization is being consolidated and revamped.

Cons-Executive level seems to not get along well. Plenty of games, don't get to close to the sun.
-Going global--while also positive, company is learning its lessons

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what your doing however pull together as a tighter One SVB team at the top.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
