    I have been working at Western Alliance Bank full-time

    Pros

    Management does a good job of staying in touch with their colleagues' needs and are sensitive to ensuring that opportunities for advancement are available. Annual reviews are done in a timely manner and salary increases appear to be commensurate with performance. The bonus structure is competitive and includes an annual bonus available to all colleagues based on bank performance measures. Was also very impressed with the salary evaluation and increases to lower salaried individuals given the recent changes in the tax structure. Annual conferences update the management on performance of the bank and innovation of products and services present and coming in the future. This information is then shared back through the workforce. While efficiency and growth is emphasized, management understands the importance of a balanced work/life structure further encouraging the staff to perform.

    Cons

    Continued concentration on innovative e-banking products and services would be beneficial.
