I worked at Fortress Investment Group

Pros

Reasonably flexible investment approach, people willing to get creative. There are a number of very smart individuals, not all, but most.

Cons

A little unstable, can make jerky reactions to markets and major strategic changes based on temporary market conditions. I was satisfied with my pay package but have heard from a lot of people who weren't.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make it a more consistent environment. Turnover is a killer for a business like this, keep your strongest performing employees, don't lose them over a few dollars of comp, continue to prune the weeds like you do.

    I worked at Fortress Investment Group

    Pros

    Very involved and active work environment. A lot of deals pass by your table so you get to acquire an insight into different market cap, sector etc . companies and different valuation and financing methods.

    Cons

    Not very organized and 'one firm' culture is not implemented that well. Different parts of the company ( private equity, hedge fund etc...) are mostly treated as separate entities even when they could be leveraging each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In junior levels leadership and mentorship program is adequate . - can be better.
    ALso because it is a public company sometimes it is hard to judge senior managements interests.
