    I worked at Natixis as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    The small structure gives juniors a direct exposure to directors and managers.
    Great learning environment as most managers have a lot of experience and have been in the firm for 10+ years
    Firm is ambitious.
    Nice staff, good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Cultural gaps between Paris and NY can be sometimes frustrating for some employees.
    Limited opportunities for juniors (high number of interns).
    Lot of meetings.
    Some processes can be very bureaucratic.

    Former Employee - Investment Consultant in Boston, MA

    I worked at Natixis full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits/time off to volunteer, good location, good array of products so you don't feel pigeon-holed or pressured to present one solution

    Cons

    Monotonous, lack of diversity, little room for creativity, strict with hours even if it would save you an hour commute to leave 7 min early to catch a train, rigid and "classic" stereotyped sales culture, unnecessary/mandatory meetings even if no one has anything to say and looks at the clock until time's up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better development/mentor plans for employees, more flexibility/listening to employees, better promotion of and communication to women. If from the first week it's hinted that there are other departments or career avenues... or if someone is more than three times questioned by superiors if they want to keep in the field because it's male dominated (obvious) .. it's discouraging because it's already a challenge as it is to get promoted as a man without the excess baggage a woman has to deal with. May be subtle, but better management training or org behavior/change management consulting.
