    Pros

    The company pays very well.

    Cons

    Long hours...hard work and life balance because you are always at the office.
    Takes forever to become permanent if you are a temp.

    Pros

    Good company to intern for because it is a great learning experience and because they are one of the top hedgefunds. You will learn a lot.

    Cons

    Sometime I would just sit there because I didn't have work to do. But I think that is the case for most intern jobs.

    Advice to Management

    It would be awesome if there were more projects for the interns to work on. But nonetheless it was a good opportunity.

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

    Pros

    I learned a lot and very fortunate to have been working with some of my colleagues. There is a very tight knit group and easy to get a long with most. Ask for more work or changes or you will get stuck.

    Cons

    The group is very large and no place to move up or internally. The supervisors need to take courses in management.
