    ProsWhen I worked for Western Alliance, to was a nice place to work. Nice personable people to work with.

    ConsIt's a bank so there is a lot of red tape.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEven though it's a bank which causes much bureaucracy, some formalities are just frustrating and unproductive.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
