    I have been working at Western Alliance full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though it's a bank which causes much bureaucracy, some formalities are just frustrating and unproductive.

    I worked at Western Alliance as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Small company. Companies cash position seems good.

    Cons

    Poor management, poor benefits. IT department disjointed and practices unethical practices. No clear vision. Work environment reminiscent of jr high school. Too many politics and egos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review your IT department. The IT VPs and CTOs vision isn't clear. They treat people unethically. For all their experience you would think they would make better decisions. Western Alliances IT department are going to do considerable damage to Western Alliances brand.
