I have been working at Silicon Valley Bank

Pros

Great benefits, company is well known with the early stage tech companies as well with the top venture firms.

Cons

Unless you are a lender your career trajectory is very limited. Too many middle managers , old boy network prevails.. Rotation program only available for lenders and the "chosen". Many of the successful people fit same profile

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be so insincere
