I have been working at Silicon Valley Bank full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Strong, collaborative/team oriented culture; management has good strategic focus/objectives; strong benefit package; ability to move around to different roles internally; work/life balance

Cons

Visibility around employee compensation relative to competitors; can be overly slow to make big decisions; minor growing pains (real estate challenges, hiring strategy) as bank continues to rapidly scale

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to promote from within, proactively take care of "best people" through empowerment, compensation and attention from highest levels in organization.
