    I worked at Fortress Investment Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay is great, benefits are great, view is great. I had a positive experience working here, came in early when not many employees were there, was nice to have quite time. Was able to leave when all work was done at the end of the day, nobody lays the guilt trip on you when you are done with your work for the day.

    Cons

    Long hours, as with every job sometimes. Not personally, but i know that some teams work from 9am-10pm every night including most weekends. High turnover in in these departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees who are over worked eventually leave. If everybody is working at 100% all of the time there isn't any time to gather your thoughts and relax to let new and innovative thoughts in.
