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

    Pros

    I started as a contractor and was able to land a full time job. Throughout the years I was able to work my way up and be asked to relocate to the Tempe office and be a part of mgmt. I feel so honored to be working for such a great company. I see myself retiring from SVB as they have been on an upswing and growing with so many opportunities.

    Cons

    We are still learning to grow as a company yet keep that small company feel. Its a good thing but sometimes I wonder if they are biting more than they can handle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work as I trust and cherish their leadership.
