    I worked at Fortress Investment Group as an intern

    Pros

    Amazing company with incredibly talented people. Great exposure to the industry and learning opportunities from senior management.

    Cons

    Day to day learning is your responsibility. Everyone is incredibly busy so all the teaching will have to be done by yourself.

    Pros

    Huge learning curve, great industry knowledge, positive team culture, teams that like to work hard / play hard, smart people with a desire to do what's right and willingness to train newer staff.

    Cons

    The hours are demanding during critical times in the month / quarter depending on which group you are part of. Sometimes you run into political drama at the higher levels that trickles down to staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. You set a positive tone for the staff below you.

    Pros

    Treat employees right and have a great working environment that is never quiet by any means. Also working at a top firm has its advantages.

    Cons

    Only con I can personally think of is the horrible toilette paper they have in the bathrooms. It's the equivalent of wiping your bum with sandpaper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stock the fridges with red bull

    I worked at Fortress Investment Group part-time

    Pros

    The firm has a great culture and team environment. They really incorporate interns into everyday work and projects. There are also many intern events that are a great way to meet the other interns and learn about other parts of the businesses.

    Cons

    Long hours at times, but that's expected at a firm like Fortress. There is also access to upper management and MDs which is nice.
