    Difficulty in getting assistant to be attentive as an under-study to my position.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent in personality, decisions in responsibilities of my position and more supportative.

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement with hard work and time commitment
    Managers (especially Senior Mgrs) without personal connections to sport are strong
    Element of pride working for NASCAR

    Cons

    Abyssmal pay/nonexistent raises
    Senior management crippled by licensing constraints and owner apathy/greed
    Managers WITH personal connections to sport are typically incompetent
    High turnover
    Low sales
    Diminishing customer interest/excitement
    Terrible morale

    Advice to Management

    Once the licensing constraints are taken care of and the company is rightsized, call back some of the non-Nascar-team-connected that left, offer them a healthy salary, and allow them to facilitate the change necessary to create a profitable business. Fire the long-term whiners and promote enthusiasm.

    Pros

    This was a good place to work when it was Action Performance. However, due to poor management since the joint venture between SMI and ISC, brought MA into existence, we are on a downward spiral. The only good reason to work here is fair salary and good benefits.

    Cons

    Total lack of leadership. No accountability. To report ethics violations, you're supposed to call a number that is answered inside the building, by someone who reports to the biggest violator. Unbelievable that no one from either of the owners has ever come over and asked what is going on... seems they don't care...

    Advice to Management

    Either make positive changes or GET OUT, so the rest of us can keep the company afloat.
