Balancing Work And Life

At SVB, we offer plenty of paid time off and perks to help employees balance work responsibilities and their personal lives.


Non-exempt employees accrue vacation up to 22 days per year and exempt employees participate in SVB’s “Time Away from Work” practice, in which you collaborate directly with your manager to plan time away from work to refresh and renew.


There are 10 scheduled paid holidays.

Sick Leave

Employees accrue up to a maximum of 10 sick days per year

Employee Assistance Plan (EAP)

Employees and their family members can contact the EAP for confidential counseling, advice and referrals on personal as well as work-related issues.

Commuter Benefit Program

This program allows employees to save on eligible commuting costs through automatic, pre-tax payroll deductions for transit pass, parking provider or both. Once the pre-tax limit is reached, post-tax deductions can be taken.


SVB offers discounts for movie theaters, theme parks, personal computing purchases and more.

Staying Healthy

We offer comprehensive health care coverage and other resources to promote the health of our employees and their families.


Options include a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) and Point-of-Service (POS) plans through United HealthCare. Regional HMOs are also available in California (Kaiser) and Massachusetts (Tufts).


We offer coverage under the Delta Dental plan.


We offer the Vision Service Plan (VSP) and, for employees in Boston, we also offer Advantica Eyecare.

Health Care Flexible Spending Account

Employees can save on taxes by contributing part of pre-tax pay to this account, then getting reimbursed for eligible out-of-pocket health care expenses.

Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account

Through this pre-tax plan, employees can save on taxes for out-of-pocket dependent care expenses like after school care, adult day care for an aging parent who lives with you, as well as babysitters and nannies.

Financial Protection

We offer a number of insurance plans to protect employees and their families in the event of an unexpected life change, such as a disability or a death in the family.

Short-term Disability

This plan offers a basic level of income replacement after seven days of missed work due to illness or injury.

Supplemental Short-term Disability

This plan pays in addition to the basic short-term disability coverage. Employees pay the full cost for this coverage.

Long-term Disability

If an employee's injury or illness continues for more than 90 days, a percentage of pay in benefits is received. SVB pays the full cost for this coverage.

Life Insurance

To protect an employee's family in the event of death, SVB provides basic term life insurance coverage of two times base pay. Supplemental coverage for employees can also be purchased.

Dependent Life Insurance

Employees may choose to purchase dependent life insurance for their spouse and children.

Building Wealth For Tomorrow

SVB offers several comprehensive programs that support our employees in meeting their financial and retirement goals.
