I worked at Silicon Valley Bank

Pros

Technology industry
Good benefits
Friendly people (for the most part)
Flexible when need to be flexible
Promote fast if you work for it

Cons

Getting to be a "big bank"
Suprising personnel decisions (picking wrong people to promote and getting rid of or driving out good, producing workers)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not manage by fear and insecuirty. If you hire talented people, they will work hard and it will payoff for the company.
