    I worked at Silicon Valley Bank as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The company atmosphere was very fun and the people are interesting and easy to work with. Everyone was willing to help and answer my questions. I participated in a lot of out of office activities and community service. It was an overall great experience

    Cons

    Sometimes a little boring, but I think this was because they are slow in the summer.

    I have been working at Silicon Valley Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They're great if you love the typical Silcon Valley perks (coffee service, free food, covered parking, gym, game room, etc.) to mask the fact that they're a sweat shop.

    Cons

    They've taken the "Client First" mantra to the extreme where there is no work-life balance. A standard weekday report suddenly becomes an emergency on the weekend if it involves a client. Almost all project workloads are generated by audit due to compliance issues. There is no career path for people in IT. Management personnel decisions are made without employee input. Staffing levels are insufficient. One IT leader is known for inappropriate emails. People are burnt-out and management downplays or ignores complaints. IT management is better at fire-fighting than strategic planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT leadership is ineffective, incompetent, and ruining the culture that the CEO has installed.
