    I worked at Michigan Int'l Speedway

    Pros

    Very friendly staff members in every department from the track president all the way down to the guys who cut the grass. Great summer job opportunity for college students.

    Cons

    I never felt like I had any opportunity to advance and the pay was pretty terrible. Some managers and department heads seemed to only have their job because the knew the right guy or they were related to someone high up.

    A very fun place to work, but not the best pay.

    I worked at Michigan Int'l Speedway

    Pros

    A very fun, fast paced atmosphere with good personalities all around

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement, lack of communication and respect between administration and maintenance (which can be a big deal considering maintenance handles practically everything in-house, a very minimal amount of things are outsourced.)
    Employees should be paid more than they are for their efforts, but some might believe the fun atmosphere would make up for the low compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase appreciation and communication across departments, offer monetary incentives for good performance

    I have been working at Michigan Int'l Speedway

    Pros

    MIS is a great family type division, but the pressure to sell tickets is high. At the time the office was dominated by single executives or those with no kids. But it has changed. The folks who were more free stayed long hours and had more success. Overall, pretty supportive, but lots of stress for a place that only hosts two or three big events yearly.

    Cons

    At the time, the president was not very friendly, the new president seems great. There was not much emphasis on learning and getting better, just more productive. For new person more mentoring is needed, but the time never seemed to be available for the training process. The poerks are great though,. the staff can travel and see other events to try and find sponsors for the facility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The things you have intitiated are great lately. Keep the focus local. All event planning is mostly local in nature. The folks who will travel in from far away are motivated, but the folks who are an hour or two away have more local events to draw their attention. Harder to get someone from two hours away than a dedicated fan from ten hours away. So the focus must be local in nature and the experience must be bigger or better or different than anything within one hours drive.
