Overall good place to work
Operations Specialist (Current Employee), Santa Clara, CADecember 26, 2013
Pros: overall treats employees well. good benefits and pto.
Cons: cost cutting and new office in tempe. not much room for advancement.
Company is doing well and overall treats employees well. However, trying to save money and grow at the same time leads to lower morale among the long time employees.
Outdated systems and products for a "technology" bank.

SVB gave me an impecable experience with sales and customer service
Client Service Advisor II (Former Employee), Palo Alto, CAJuly 1, 2013
A typical day at work would be scheduling appointments, answering emails from clients from problems with accounts, research, to training them with the services that they have as well as opening and closing new accounts. The best part of the job is when I receive commendations for a job well done from clients. The hardest part of the job is to make sure – more... all is pleased with your work. – less

Operations Supervisor (Current Employee), Santa Clara, CAAugust 16, 2012
Pros: free fitness gym, cafeteria, coffee cart with starbucks coffee.
Cons: n/a
A regular work day is about as hectic as the next. Very fast paced, deadlines to meet on a weekly or monthly basis, team oriented, but most of all a great company to work for.

I have learned quite a lot in my 9 years employed at Silicon Valley Bank. I have been able to mature into the individual I am today, after modeling myself based on cultures and – more... values that SVB shares day in and day out. I have learned to be a succesful leader without using a title to define who I am as an individual. I have been a supervisor for over 6 years and been able to manage a team of 6 successfully based each of their own different personalities and not as a standard. Things that I would have done 9 years ago would not be as great as a positive as they are with the knowledge and growth that I have since being employed with SVB.

Silicon Valley Bank as a whole, has a great team of Managers and employees. If there was a hard part of my current role it would be the transitions of department re-structures that the bank faces every so often. Whether the change be good, bad or flatline, I have been able to manage my individual responsibilities as well as my direct reports. But to say the least, the most enjoyable time I have working at SVB is working with my team. Because we share the same goal as a sport team would. We want to be dedicated to the job, to one another and all the while to be successful. – less

Process Development and Documentation (Former Employee), Silicon Valley, CAJune 26, 2012
I was happy to work at SVB as a consultant because they were in need of my skills and knowledge. Navigating the management ultimately limited my effectiveness due to internal disagreements.

A Great Place to work
Business Implementation Manager II (Former Employee), Santa Clara, CAJune 19, 2012
Silicon Valley Bank is great place to work. The bank is growing and has a direction for excellence. One of the things that I most admired about Silicon Valley Bank is the culture. The bank ensures that their employees work for an institution where employees feel valued, part of the overall success of the company, and provides opportunities for individual – more... success and team/global achievement.

Management is very supportive and co-works have a team-oriented drive. I never woke up in the morning feeling the burden of having to go to work. Employees have fun and are able to express their creativity.

The bank offers outstanding compensation and benefits. – less

Sr. Processor/Quality Control (Former Employee), Santa Clara, CAMay 22, 2012
Cons: commute and they re-organized this department.
The Private Banking Dept. was set up for a special group of customers. Sensitive customer service always needed. Processing consumer loans was a new item for me to learn.
