    Great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Brooklyn, MI

    ProsVery 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.

    ConsI 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.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

    ConsNot 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 Senior ManagementIncrease appreciation and communication across departments, offer monetary incentives for good performance

    Everyone wants the job, but it is still a job...

    Corporate Partnerships (Current Employee)

    ProsMIS 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.

    ConsAt 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 Senior ManagementThe 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.
