It’s always knocking here.

We’re known for robust banking career paths that are as flexible as your talents and interests.

At Western Alliance, learning, advancing and maximizing your potential and expertise come together as a key value. It’s how we perform at such a high level for our clients – and it’s also how we attract and retain the best and the brightest in our industry.

We get top marks.

A look at the industry’s most pertinent ratios demonstrates Western Alliance’s exceptional credentials, including capacity, asset quality, capital and track record for growth and performance.

More action, less conversation.

The best way to describe our culture is entrepreneurial – just like the businesses we bank.

If you’ve got a great idea, people want to help you move it forward. If you like to go above and beyond for a customer, go right ahead. If you want to grow, learn more and do more, Western Alliance could be the right place for you.

Everyone here works hard, but everyone here also values a rich life outside the office. So we have balance. And not just in our checking accounts.

Diversity & Inclusion

We are committed to diversity, and one of our newest initiatives is the WAL Women's Alliance. This initiative is dedicated to attracting, developing, retaining and advancing women through professional networking and mentoring to foster shared learning experiences.

“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.

Our recent collaboration with the Ellevate Network, a global network of professional women committed to elevating each other through education, inspiration, and opportunity, has sparked even more interest in this company-wide program.

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 stock awards for AVPs and above. Not to mention robust professional development opportunities, including seminars and conferences to grow your knowledge base and expand your network.

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.
