SVB has lost its luster; management is seriously disconnected

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Palo Alto, CA

Pros

Benefits, life/work balance, employees are generally happy to be there

Cons

When minor mistakes are made, it becomes a blame game, finger-pointing environment. Some bad managers are making things worse. Employees are afraid to say anything because of the backlash. They are being thrown under the bus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management needs to pay attention. Bad managers are being promoted. It's quid pro quo.
