    Great place to learn.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsHuge 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.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing. You set a positive tone for the staff below you.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Phenomenal learning experience in one of the top hedge funds in the industry.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

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

    ConsOnly 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 Senior ManagementStock the fridges with red bull

    Summer Intern

    Summer Intern (Former Employee)

    ProsThe 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.

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

    Liquid Markets Summer Analyst

    Capital Formation Group Summer Analyst (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsLearn 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.

    ConsCulture 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.

    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.

    ConsLess work life balance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIT 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.
