    Pros

    First of all the staff is really friendly and because the company is over staffed you have a well balanced life. Secondly, deals are interesting, the portfolio is pretty impressive.

    Cons

    Compensation is below its peers, unfortunately because the company is over staffed, it is difficult to consider a path career.

    I have been working at Natixis full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and general vacation package for Officer level employees. You'll always find friendly co-workers and some of the French folks are personable as well. Good location. Clean office environment, although desks are tiny and crowded.

    Cons

    Working in IT is like having a glorified dead-end job. There's literally zero chance of movement unless your manager leaves. Quality work goes unrewarded most of the time and some of the departments within IT are extremely dysfunctional. Toxic political climate. There are several unqualified and completely clueless managers in charge that pretty much ruins it for the rest of us. Second-tier bank pay which means lower end of the scale. You will seldom see significant raises or bonuses to write home about. Sometimes you'll get the good old double zeros regardless of how hard you worked or the quality of work you have put out. Zero effort on attempting to keep talented employees on board, not that there are many of them here. Seems like a landing area for dead end "tech" people. No employee training program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to obtain better awareness of what is really going on in IT. Better leadership equals better results. Instead you have antiquated and often times clueless managers in charge which stunt the growth and innovation of IT.

    Pros

    Very comfortable place to work, nice people, reasonable demands, ample time off.

    Cons

    The negatives of Natixis are pay, pay, pay, and pay. That, and the salaries are very low, and bonuses are small to nonexistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organize yourselves better, and pay people more money!

    Pros

    Great place to gain knowledge in multiple areas. There is always work and they have the latest Technology

    Cons

    If you are not French you will not grow with the company.
    Example I worked over 2 years as a consultant, a new French related consultant came aboard they gave the new person that did not have my qualifications a senior position with a permanent position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Natixis is a French Bank that does business in the United States. they should have a high ratio of US employees. They should stop bringing French people with Visas to have management positions!!!

    Pros

    It's a place where you are encouraged to go outside your comfort zone and try new things. Time off and benefits are very reasonable, people are friendly. Can't beat the location. Product line up is arguably best in industry and is supported by a sophisticated sales model.

    Cons

    Challenges include small size of company relative to other industry leaders. An opportunity to take on challenges but at times you are at a loss for step by step guidance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the positive work culture going and put added responsibility on managers to coach their direct reports.
