Find your place at this extraordinary banking organization that delivers the best of both worlds: the strong capacity and sophisticated product offerings of a large bank, along with the flexibility, commitment and service of a more specialized institution.

See what sets us apart.

Our World is flat.

Western Alliance is one of the country’s top-performing banking companies, ranked #1 regional bank by S&P Global Market Intelligence for 2018 and in the top 10 on the Forbes “Best Banks in America” list for four consecutive years, 2016-2019.

Western Alliance Bancorporation is headquartered in Phoenix, and our geographically managed banking divisions in Arizona, California and Nevada, along with our National Business Lines with offices around the country, deliver unparalleled market knowledge, expertise and responsive customer service. All of our businesses are backed by the significant strengths of our growing, $25 billion bank holding company.

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.

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.

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, growing 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 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.

We get top marks.

Western Alliance is ranked #1 regional bank by S&P Global Market Intelligence for 2018 and in the top 10 on the Forbes “Best Banks in America” list for four consecutive years, 2016-2019.

By every measure, our organization is a top-performing financial institution and an excellent banking partner for businesses.
