Exciting and productive workplace in a relaxed environment
Fortress Investment Group is an excellent employer in the financial services industry. At Fortress, time management, meeting deadlines, and anticipating and creating solutions to challenges is paramount. The culture at Fortress is relaxed and professional - you are expect to get your job and responsibilities done and are treated as an adult. Micro management is not present. The people are the most enjoyable part of my day.

Work hard, get paid well
Hedge fund with many different business lines. You are exposed to a lot of structures and instruments. You are expected to work very hard, but you are paid well, especially bonus time.

Average work environment for finance professional
Just an average work environment within the Finance space helping investors make more profits and money, nothing too exciting to write home about. Didn't make you feel much pride to work there.

Wonderful Company
Fortress employees tend to be very intelligent, and everyone has a phenomenal work ethic. Above all, management cultivates an environment where everyone feels valued. There's little training, however. You're expected to jump right in on day one running, and for me, that was perfect. The only reason I'm considering leaving is because I feel that I've outgrown my current role, and nowhere to go; I've essentially hit the ceiling. They are, hands down, the best company I've ever worked for.
Pros
Excellent benefits, and employees are shown that they are valued
Cons
May require long hours

difficult environment. Inconsistent management
IT priorities are all over the place - no clear direction, completely confliting directives. Three CTO's, too many captains running the ship. Success is on the back of your peers, so very competitive and back-stabbing is common.
Pros
good pay
Cons
terrible management

Great place to learn
This was my first job out college. It was a great place to learn about hedge funds. I was always very busy and had a lot of smart people around to learn from.

Good place
I enjoyed my short time there. I still keep in touch with my former manager, director and CFO. Unfortunately the 2009 great recession caused many places to dwindle or shut down and this is what occurred to the firm during that time frame.

Fortess Intern
Interns are expected to learn quickly, but learn from an elite group of investment professionals. If you are motivated and quick you will be given responsibilities.

Oportunities and hard work
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
