    Pros

    Great benefits, company is well known with the early stage tech companies as well with the top venture firms.

    Cons

    Unless you are a lender your career trajectory is very limited. Too many middle managers , old boy network prevails.. Rotation program only available for lenders and the "chosen". Many of the successful people fit same profile

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so insincere
