    I have been working at Fortress Investment Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    MONEY, bonuses etc. Great access to the latest technology. Company spares no expense to do things efficiently.

    Cons

    Long hours, cut-throat corporate environment, lack of civic responsibility. Not family-friendly.

    Advice to Management

    Money isn't everything.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Reasonably flexible investment approach, people willing to get creative. There are a number of very smart individuals, not all, but most.

    Cons

    A little unstable, can make jerky reactions to markets and major strategic changes based on temporary market conditions. I was satisfied with my pay package but have heard from a lot of people who weren't.

    Advice to Management

    Make it a more consistent environment. Turnover is a killer for a business like this, keep your strongest performing employees, don't lose them over a few dollars of comp, continue to prune the weeds like you do.
