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

    Pros

    Fortress is filled with immensely talented people, who often are excited to take time out of their day to work with interns and give you one-on-one help. If you look for them, Fortress is filled with so many opportunities.

    Cons

    I sometimes felt like I was thrust into tasks without much guidance. Yet again, teaching yourself how to do something helps you learn it well.

    I worked at Fortress Investment Group part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The internship program was setup extremely well. There was access to upper level management and most employees were more than willing to sit down and help any intern with any questions they had

    Cons

    Fortress does not hire out of the internship programs usually. No offers were given at the end of the summer which makes it hard to work your way back into the firm

    Advice to Management

    I think management is doing a great job and should keep running the shop the way they have been over the past decade.
