One Culture. One Bank.

What we call our culture – acting with integrity, displaying creativity, demonstrating teamwork, showing passion and delivering excellence – is simply the way Western Alliance people do business every day. These are the values that define us and relentlessly drive us to serve our people, our customers, our shareholders and our communities.

Our customers are at the center of everything we do, so we’ve created an environment that welcomes new ideas, prizes creative thinking, encourages collaboration and drives our people to overcome obstacles.

If you’re looking for a company that is large enough to offer lots of opportunity and professional growth, yet small and nimble enough to welcome new ideas, embrace change and feel entrepreneurial, Western Alliance could be the right place for you.

In return, you'll work with smart, dedicated, and energetic people who share a unique sense of belonging and take great pride in all that they do.

Diversity & Inclusion

Through support and education, we continue to build a culture that values and encourages a diverse and inclusive work environment.

“Diversity in the workplace is important because it manifests itself in building a great team, leading to increased opportunities for our people. We want to build a pipeline of diverse talent at all levels within the company with a focus on creating conditions for sustainable growth within the company, hiring, retaining and building the skills necessary to secure top management positions within Western Alliance. I believe together we can shape our company for the better and we should not settle for anything less.”

Kenneth Vecchione, CEO Western Alliance Bank.

Along with diversity training workshops, our WAL Women’s Alliance and Veteran’s Initiative Program, we also launched an Opportunity Council dedicated to highlighting and encouraging practices that result in diversity of thought and leadership, and emphasizing the benefits of a culturally diverse team.

Great benefits matter.

It’s all part of the package. Not only do we offer competitive compensation and the opportunity for an annual bonus at every level – the benefits package also includes medical, dental, vision, and life and disability insurance. 

There’s also an attractive 401(k) program, health savings account, employee education reimbursement programs, and more than half of our employees are eligible for an annual stock grant.

We like to give back.

Strengthening the communities where we do business is important to us. So we volunteer. We join boards. We get involved in issues that matter. And we provide financial support – through community development lending and investments, plus a variety of grants and initiatives. 

If you have a passion for getting involved and making a difference in your community, that’s a big part of life at Western Alliance.

Thrive in a Company of Entrepreneurs 

Western Alliance’s entrepreneurial spirit starts at the top with leaders who understand that empowered people are central to everything we do. By providing access, resources and capacity, they empower Western Alliance teams to deliver superior service to clients. The result is a culture that allows the company, our people—and the businesses we bank—to thrive.
