      Big enough to have experts but small enough to make an impact

      Pros

      Western Alliance has had big growth but is still a relatively small bank, because of that my experience has been relatively less manufactured than I would expect for a bank. There is room for creativity in the current state.

      Cons

      Some departments less-than-ideally organized, so sometimes things that should not be happening fall through the cracks. A happy medium between creativity and structure is always tough.

      Pros

      Vacation time is reasonable and you used to get 1 personal day off for each month but that's gone now.

      Cons

      Poor training and micro management. It is sad to see when people gossip each other, but when they get together they will pretend they are best friends. When they onboard new people, those people will be gone within 6 months if not sooner for whatever reason. Lot of over-promising but nothing happens, and you cant even bring up concern, even if you bring any concerns or ask for something if manager doesnt like you, they will turn it against you, and if they are in good relationship with their manager, you will have a miserable time.
