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

Pros

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

Cons

Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

Trust 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.
