    Working for a leader in sports entertainment is exciting and challenging with constant action and little down time.

    I have been working at NASCAR full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working inside NASCAR provides hands-on opportunities and access to create new ways for fans to connect with the sport. The company understands what it takes to pull off events for 10-11 months a year and trains employees by doing with comparable compensation to other related industries.

    Cons

    Long hours and constant action allow for little down time. The tonnage of events and content around those events doesn't allow a lot of time for planning and often requires execution on the fly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Possibly rotating employees through other departments and definitely staffing up to allow employees to feel they have the support they need to take time off should be considered. While being lean is understandable, it stretches employees too thin and doesn't allow for as much out-of-the-box thinking as it could.

    I worked at NASCAR full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The organization has solid team members and does try to keep the 'big picture' in focus.

    Cons

    The race season is long; if your position requires track travel, prepare to be a Road Warrior. Hiring from within doesn't appear to be a high priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm sure management realizes that different departments/offices don't always share the same vision and end up working against each other.

    I worked at NASCAR full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons for working at NASCAR was the people, the product and the stakeholders: drivers, teams, track owners/operators, sponsors, broadcast partners.

    Cons

    not a lot of opportunity for career advancement; once you are pigeon holed in a area very tough to move to another area of the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create opportunities for management training program where employees can transition to other areas of the company cross-training to foster career advancement

    Pros

    Managers care about employees, great place to be an intern and learn about sport, all around great co-workers.

    Cons

    Diversity department needs to improve, seem very power hungry towards diversity interns, yet don't do much for interns or sport overall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate the director in charge and manger of diversity department. It is a great department with a great mission but needs much better leadership

    I worked at NASCAR

    Pros

    Meeting all the drivers and the respect you get from fans. It is also great to work in an environment where you are surrounded by things that you love, in my case, NASCAR. You also have the opportunity to travle all over the United States and see places that you may not have other wise seen.

    Cons

    There are a lot of downsides to working within NASCAR. You travel all the time and never get to see your family. They expect y ou to put work first and family last. It is great pay but really, really long hours. There are also al ot of big, big egos to deal with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about your employees as individuals rather than just numbers.
