    I have been working at Natixis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good compared to OTHER INDUSTRIES. Not to other firms in finance though. Some of us are lucky enough to have a good boss. Others, not so much.

    Cons

    Pay is exceptionally low for finance industry. There's no upward mobility here unless you're a snotty frat boy or somehow you're connect to someone in the C-Suite. There's no real work from home benefit here. They patronized us by giving us a 1-2 day/week benefit but in actuality most managers only let people do it 1-2 days A MONTH. It's a joke, really. Also, the HR department here is a complete disaster. They have no idea what current competitive salaries are and have no clue what employees want. They are a bunch of catty dinosaurs that terrorize people around them and hold people back from promotions and raises.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the top two HR people and listen to your employees. Natixis is NOT an "innovative" company, despite what antiquated SVP's are telling you. Everyone at VP and below is absolutely miserable. You NEED to offer flexible work hours and work from home.

    I worked at Natixis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    a few very good individuals in either management or front office
    a large balance sheet which they are willing to put to work
    strong expertise in certain specific areas (lending in particular)

    Cons

    platform is too far behind as compared to competitors when it comes to legal, operations, systems, models, risk and business strategy.
    Environment is very political with a clear divide between French versus Americans, regional platform versus Head office, Equity versus Fixed Income.
    Management lacks vision and ambition to grow and gain market shares.
    Name recognition is a huge impediment to grow the business and US management is not willing to invest in promotion and marketing.

    Advice to Management

    change the management team: they are old, bitter and need a complete overhaul
