    I have been working at Indianapolis Motor Speedway full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company treats its employees better than most companies I have worked for.
    Good insurance, good PTO, and periodic gifts from management to remind us that they understand how hard we work. I appreciate the recognition as much as the benefits.

    Cons

    As in any sports event career, the hours get long and include evenings and weekends in preparation for events. Not a con specific to the company as much as the type of work. I have had no negative experiences from the company itself.

    Advice to Management

    You have some great people running Operations, keep them happy and keep letting them run with it!

    I worked at Indianapolis Motor Speedway full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    An overall amazing place to work! I was able to not only work on projects for the IMS but also for INDYCAR and some of their other sister companies. Great experience and exposure into a career in sports.

    Cons

    The only con I can attest to is the frequent change in management as this made it difficult to finish projects.

    I worked at Indianapolis Motor Speedway part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The job is incredibly easy to perform. If you can't do this job, then you are literally trying to fail.

    Cons

    The coworkers are mostly people that don't understand absolutely anything. The supervisors tend to not really know how to run anything, but there isn't really anything for them to mess up.

    Too many changes in upper management, not enough "workers" too many upper management positions that they just keep adding and getting rid of actual workers

    Start caring about dedicated employees who have experiance within the industry

    I worked at Indianapolis Motor Speedway part-time (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.

    I have been working at Indianapolis Motor Speedway full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a fast pace action packed place to work. If you enjoy mulit-tasking and motorsports, this is a great palce to work.

    Cons

    Some of the deadline and projects they produce can be very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Doing more with less is not always a good choice.
