Financial Analyst, OTC Derivatives (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 25, 2018
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.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 3, 2019
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.
Excellent benefits, and employees are shown that they are valued
Vice President, Head of Client Services (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 26, 2018
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.
Great leadership and very well thought out and run internship program
Hedge Fund Summer Analyst (Former Employee) – New York, NY – April 4, 2016
Had an incredible experience as an intern with Fortress Investment Group. The program was planned with a lot of thought and most employees were more than happy to work with the interns to help them thrive in the program
Analyst (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 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.
company benefits, training, cross collaboration
extensive hours, salary does not reflect work output and expectations
