    I have been working at Fortress Investment Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Reputable well diversified hedge fund and the pay is pretty good. Working hours are decent, exposure to various credit investments.

    Cons

    Poor management and governance. No autonomy or scope for career growth. Extreme micromanagement and red tape. No appreciation for one's work. No morale boosting.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your team to be responsible enough to complete the given task by the deadline, instead of sending constant annoying reminders and follow ups. Appreciate and recognize good work which boosts morale.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Fortress Investment Group as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learn 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.

    Cons

    Culture 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.
