"SVB is a fine stepping stone if you are coming from another company and they offer you a better position. But be prepared to stay in that position or move to another company in order to grow. Also - there are very few women in leadership positions."

"Progressive company. Great place to work. I disagree with the other reviews that it's a white boys' club. I did not see evidence of that."
"The benefits are great from medical to flex time to maternity leave. But they don't promote or pay women equally to men and the number of women in management is low. "
"Flexible hours, receptive to women with children, and good benefits including a subsidized program for emergency child care. Not many women in senior leadership positions however, overall culture of respecting work-life boundaries and working mothers"
"I worked at SVB for a few years and reported to 2 female managers. In the beginning, things were great and I felt empowered working for 2 women in management roles and the support they provided was great; however, felt threatened by me once I became good at my role. Long story short...if you become a threat, they will find a reason to use you as a scapegoat for their own personal gain. What baffles me is if I did such a good job and the entire department but those 2 managers liked me, why would you let go of a highly talented and qualified employee?"
"Good old white boys club. Good if you have connections. That said, they pay well and benefits are great. But you will get punished for being smart and they will slowly kill your morale. If you don't mind sacrificing your sanity for a couple years of good money, why not?"
