I worked at NASCAR

Pros

Despite the problems in structure and culture, the motorsports industry is very interesting the work for. It is not often that you walk through your office and you run into Richard Petty in the hallway and have to point him to the restroom. Travel to the tracks is fun (in the beginning) and the live environment makes the job challenging.

Cons

Complete incompetence of middle management. If you are not a director or higher (or a close friend of one) you are not worth squat, your opinion does not matter and your skills are, by default, insignificant. I have worked with some very smart people in non-management positions and all share the same view. Cronyism is rampant within the company, leading to some very unqualified people in fairly powerful positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep close tabs on your middle management layer and keep in contact with all 'regular' employees and not just the chosen few. Do not exclusively hire just MBA's for all management positions, but make sure they have the additional skillset and background required to be able to understand the department they have to manage.

    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.
