    I worked at Fortress Investment Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work within and across the division. Further, collaboration between teams was easy. For company this size, the flat organization structure helps promote communication across the team members.

    Cons

    Annual review process did not provide clear pathway on upward promotion or cross division transfers. The flip side of flat organization structure results in unclear availability of roles which one can aspire into. Most promotion appears relationship based rather than hard metrics which calibrates performance across employees.
