    I worked at Western Alliance Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I am a seasoned professional - Much of the company and culture is positive where the teams/employees are secure in their positions.

    Cons

    Not quite sure why they have IT, they don't develop, most departments are enterprise, but the head and those that do the dirty work know they ride on others coat tails. If you join....be aware and watch your back! Also HR just occupies space.

    Advice to Management

    really looks under the covers - there are many smoke screens. If they continue to set up those that get them to the finish line, they will run out of real estate.

    I have been working at Western Alliance Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working in the info-sec department, management shows a real care about daily needs and is always looking for ways to improve. Management is very flexible with time-off. Given more than enough time for training. The company provides free parking and metro passes to the employees at the DT PHX office. Benefits and pay is competitive with industry standards

    Cons

    Since the bank is relatively large at this point, the topic of audit is a big one. Many standard procedures are constantly inhibited by audit which seems to dominate anything done in IT and similar roles.
