I worked at NASCAR as an intern (Less than a year)

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 Management

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

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at NASCAR full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Get to work with lots of different types of new media and really get a first hand look into the sports production level

    Cons

    Really hard to move up the ladder, if you are good at your position, you stay there. Hard to get advancement opportunities.

    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 Management

    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.
