Pros

Competitive pay package/salary
Flexible time away from work policy

Cons

Agree with all the reviews stated before. CIO has completely lost it. She is clueless about how to run an IT shop. Fired 2 Leadership team members this week, after promoting both of them 5 months back. How can someone be so fickle minded. Apparently they were not exhibiting OneIT culture and whatever that means. One of them was known to express his dissent if he didn't agree with her opinions. The clear message is that you either suck up to her and not have your own opinion, or leave the bank.

Don't think we even need her, she is never around for her employees anywyas. She is either attending conferences or going around bad mouthing IT to the business. How messed up we were before and how this transformational journey is going to take us to the moon. Someone should question what has she accomplished in the last one year. Besides completely messing up the morale of the team.

Advice to Management

Advice to COO: you need to take over IT. You have appointed a leader who is totally clueless and creating a culture worse than what we had before. Intervene now before it's too late.

    Pros

    This review is from someone who has been in SVB IT for almost 2 years.
    Great opportunities to grow skills and business acumen.
    A leadership team that really listens and promotes equality.
    Women have equal opportunity to advance.
    Great pay and conditions.
    The business challenges and motivated people make it a pleasure to come to work.
    CIO has a great vision to transform IT.

    Cons

    Some long term IT people have old values and are too comfortable in their jobs. These people form cliques and unfortunately undermine progress with passive-aggressive behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Support the change in IT. It's a breath of fresh air.
