I cant say enough great things about this company. It was a wonderful working environment with supportive and collaborative teams. There was never a moment where I felt out of place. Extremely welcoming working environment .
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – San Francisco Bay Area, CA – May 6, 2018
SVB used to be an amazing place to work. Management used to look out for their employees. Now days if your not willing to brown nose your way to the top, management looks for ways to get rid of you. Don't get me wrong the benefits are great but the culture has become down right intollerable. Don't get me started about work-life balance because the company works their employees to the bone and could care less about your personal time. I worked for the company for almost 20 years and I used to say I would never leave but changes in management made me realize I needed to make a career change.
QA Director (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 27, 2018
Amazing boss and amazing place to work. Unfortunately they decided to go to a sticky team which mean everyone is under one development manager and no need for a test director. I would still work their if they found me another position.

I would not recommend working here due to the workplace culture and the non-training to your position aspect of the company. It's a great place to work as a contractor but not a full time employee. Too many internal politics.

Senior Relationship Manager (Former Employee) – California – March 6, 2018
Dominant bank in its industry. Strong customer service. Selling easy, just take the calls that come in. Stock has consistently done well over the years. You just have to drink the kool-aid and never disagree with management or you will disappear.
Deposit Operations Associates (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – February 28, 2018
The job description is nothing compared to the actual workload given per position. I was promised a lot of work, challenging at that - however on most days, I'm literally sitting there yawning at my computer screen pretending to look busy because the workload was lackluster.
When there was work, management tends to be very murky leaving you lost and confused as to what you're supposed to be doing. There's a disconnect between the operations employees and the management and higher ups (reports to CEO). While the CEO and people directly reporting to him have good intentions of making the company a better place, the immediate management to the daily operations employees need better guidance. Management are not willing to help you grow your career, they are looking out for themselves only.
Team Lead / Senior Desktop Technician (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – February 13, 2018
People used to be important at SVB and it was the foundation of its success. Specifically speaking about IT, there has been a tremendous turnover in the leadership team over the course of 10 years and most recently it is being run by a fear focused model. Leadership team clearly states one thing but silently acts on another and its obvious the managers are all afraid to make decisions and therefore turn-around throughout IT org is high. There are great people hiding in their shells waiting for change to occur so they can emerge and see SVB culture thrive once again.
Good people, Good Benefits & Comp
Fear stricken staff, corrupt leadership, difficult to mask
