What is the retirement plan like at Natixis?

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 of, the proposals are generally dis-regarded in favor of old approved structure, even if it makes no sense. If the proposal are disregarded, it usually takes a very long time to build something and the problems with delivery and workflow are becoming "a bad taste in the mouth" for a long time. The lessons however are NOT learned & the same story usually repeats on a different project. Work from home is generally not approved, but it's up to the manager.

Advice to Management

Listen to what people performing work and the experts in the field recommend & trust in your resources

How are the career development opportunities at Natixis?

Pros

Overall, the majority of the people are good to work with. Good career opportunities in Boston where most of the jobs are located.

Cons

As with just about anywhere else, your happiness level will depend a lot on your manager and your colleagues. Some are great; others not so much. There are always going to be some bad managers or difficult people to work with. Very limited career opportunities in the much smaller SF office.

Advice to Management

Be more proactive in managing out bad managers, difficult employees, or laggards. There are a minority of these, but they really drag the company down.

Very limited career opportunities in the much smaller SF office.
