I worked at Fortress Investment Group as an intern (less than an year)Pros
I worked relatively long hours considering I had to commute from Connecticut. But overall they provided good training, and great pay for an intern.Cons
I sometimes was reduced to doing paper work day after day. The work got repetitive sometimes, but they would put you at different desks to mix it up.Advice to ManagementAdvice
I would want to integrate with more of the company, rather than just on one floor.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO

- Application Details
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Fortress Investment Group in April 2014.Interview Details
I was offered Nespresso and watched like a lab rat for over 45 minutes. The person who was supposed to interview me never arrived. Apparently she was in a meeting.
A succession of three women, starting with a college intern, each "checked in" on me, presumably stalling until the interviewer would be free. They did not really ask me questions in a typical interview format, but were ultimately responsible for judging my behavior.
Three people from Fortress started following my Twitter account a week after the interview, although their decision to not move forward with me had already been made. Go figure.Interview Questions
