        I worked at Fortress Investment Group full-time for more than 2 years

        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.
