Oportunities and hard work
Analyst (Current Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 19, 2014
This firm has tons of opportunities for aggressive professionals who are looking to get experience under their belts. The only problem is that, the culture is enforced by management and the vision of the users can be unrealistic. I work 60-70 hrs per week and can never truly disconnect from my responsibilities.
Pros
company benefits, training, cross collaboration
Cons
extensive hours, salary does not reflect work output and expectations

The place is very deadline driven and is quite fast-paced. You have to be able to think quickly and be as productive as possible. You definitely learn a lot through it's complex structure and exposure to a vast variety of investment products.

Senior Network/IT Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 11, 2012
Fortress is by corporate standards a small company. This is both a plus and a negative.
The size of the company made for an interesting challenge and required providing support to traders, admins and executives. Our helpdesk, desktop support team worked well together as we provided all levels of support. We did not have an overnight shift so monthly 24/7 on-call was mandatory. Small companies have small budget making technical support more difficult than is should be. The weekly support meeting were the best part of the week and very helpful because we discussed all the issues we encountered throughout the week and we were able to share resolutions to specific problems. The most difficult part of the job was related to the company size. Because it was small many employees knew us on a first name basis and did not hesitate to contact use directly, even when we were home and not on-call. All management contact was done through supervisor so we never communicated with them directly. The most important thing I learned was the value of team work. The job would have been impossible without it.
Pros
great benefits and salary, varied duties
Cons
job is fundamentally 24/7 even when not on-call
