    I worked at Natixis full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Well funded for trying to do interesting communications, campaigns, and build thought-leadership. Management like to take care of sales team and makes sure people are rewarded for their hard work. Employees have access to Management and give nice transparency. They have a nice culture of giving back to the community and supporting the New port Jazz Festival.

    Cons

    There are a number of Marketing Sr Managers that bully and try to run the show in the Global Marketing teams. Sr. MGMT is too afraid to get rid of those problem individuals. Sometimes there is a sense of politics, cutthroat game-of-thrones style corporate positioning. There are a number of institutionalized people who have been there 15-20 years that may not be connected to current trends in the industry and really can...

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of those problem individuals and embrace a bully-free environment.

    I worked at Natixis full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good, 401K match, with the same amount contributed to company's own retirement plan. 5 years to get vested in the latter. Vacation time grows of up to 6 weeks. Knowledgeable people, but some of the hires and promotions are highly questionable.

    Cons

    Management does not want to listen to good ideas & proposals. Agile projects structure is only working within particular groups, & only b/w some of the departments, not as overall company policy. The projects would get approved from the higher level, without consulting people who might propose something better. Even if something better is proposed & might be favorably viewed of up to the highest possible level...

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

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good. There's a matching 401K. Overall the people here are nice and friendly. There's a lot of great opportunities to learn here.

    Cons

    The management in general is pretty bad. The overall culture fosters nepotism and poor planning. What ends up happening is a 20% of the people does 80% of the work. And half the time it's unnecessary busy work.

    Advice to Management

    The hiring needs to be better. A lot of the newer employees have no idea what they're doing and management seems to only take care of themselves. Everyone just says yes to their respective boss and puts the pressure on the people below.

    Pros

    Great people. Great team. You can meet with some of the nicest people.

    Cons

    The headquarter in Paris centralizes everything which means the local platform has little power over many topics. Company is French speaking and English can be non-existent sometimes. Very limited growth opportunities for non-french speaking people. Very political overall. Very backward in terms of technology. You can have tons of workload and stress due to high turn-over.

    Advice to Management

    Please do invest in technology because it's preventing the company from growing.

    I have been working at Natixis

    Pros

    Great people and tight knit working environment. Smaller size allows for much more hands on experience. Nice office and great location.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not a strong point of this company. Taking time off is frowned upon and there is no work from home option.

    Advice to Management

    Improve work life balance. You'll get more productivity and less turnover.
