    Current Employee - Administrative in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    The benefits are great, and the pay isn't bad.

    Cons

    You will never get promoted and your ideas will be ignored. No one in a position to care about your career does anything to help further you along. HR department is unproductive for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to mid management. They are pouring poison on the fruit vine.

    I have been working at Fortress Investment Group full-time (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.
