    I worked at Indianapolis Motor Speedway part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great people and a wonderful and well rounded working experience. My experience there taught me a lot about the sports industry and the retail world and how the two fit together.

    Cons

    The atmosphere can get a little intense. The communication between some of the upper level management can get a little fuzzy at times, but overall not too many cons.

    Pros

    Good Benefits
    Great Parking
    Behind the Scenes work at an iconic brand

    Cons

    Unpredictable management moves
    Antiquated performance review
    Limited advancement via promotions
    Limited raises/bonuses (typically no higher than increase in cost of living)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IMS could use and update to their performance review process and their ability to invest in their employee's skills. Too many people at this organization are no motivated to go the extra mile and perform to their full potential.
