I worked at Silicon Valley Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

SVB gives the opportunity to work in a high growth Bank. The comp and Ben is very good and the people are very friendly with strong integrity.

Cons

As with growing companies the infrastructure is still catching up and resources are limited. There are not too many internal opportunities to grow as the Mid-Senior Management does not change.

    I worked at Silicon Valley Bank as an intern (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 (More than 5 years)

    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 Management

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