Extreme micromanagement

Associate (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Fortress Investment Group full-time for more than 3 years

ProsReputable well diversified hedge fund and the pay is pretty good. Working hours are decent, exposure to various credit investments.

ConsPoor management and governance. No autonomy or scope for career growth. Extreme micromanagement and red tape. No appreciation for one's work. No morale boosting.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your team to be responsible enough to complete the given task by the deadline, instead of sending constant annoying reminders and follow ups. Appreciate and recognize good work which boosts morale.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
