I have been working at Fortress Investment Group full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Reputable well diversified hedge fund and the pay is pretty good. Working hours are decent, exposure to various credit investments.

Cons

Poor management and governance. No autonomy or scope for career growth. Extreme micromanagement and red tape. No appreciation for one's work. No morale boosting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your team to be responsible enough to complete the given task by the deadline, instead of sending constant annoying reminders and follow ups. Appreciate and recognize good work which boosts morale.

    I worked at Fortress Investment Group as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Learn a lot and get lots of exposure to a variety of markets.
    Small teams and lots of access to VPs and MDs.
    Got to do "real" work as an intern on Wall St... most other summer analysts can't say the same.

    Cons

    Culture is a very aggressive one. If you are not a cultural fit (i.e. very aggressive personality) will not fit into this particular group. However, this group is not representative of other groups at Fotress.

    I worked at Fortress Investment Group as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment
    Employees are taken good care of
    Get to learn lot of new technologies,they won't hesitate to put in capital for the applications
    Small IT team hard work is recognized very well, juniors' ideas are also heard.

    Cons

    Less work life balance.
    24/7 critical support applications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT teams and applications, more application learning sessions should be conducted so that more departments drop the act of maintaining separate IT teams and come under one roof for better results and savings.
