    I have been working at NASCAR full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, Perks, and an Overall Fun Company to work for. Your overall role is easy as long as you have the necessary skill sets to do the job. Growth within is a biggie and they always look within first

    Cons

    Like any business you work for there is the good, the bad, and the ugly. The good is if you do a great job your work doesn't of unnoticed and they prefer to promote within first. Bad is that its so fastpaced sometimes that people expect things to get done without enough logical time. Ugly..like others have said sometimes management do what they want and pass the blame down the line to cover their end. You just have to always cover yours first and roll with the punches.

    Advice to Management

    Teach and train early. Don't be afraid to grow your team so that when employees leave you will already have someone trained and developed to step in. Cross training here is great, but don't hold back the knowledge based off of personal opinions. Other managers may look at it differently but portray it another way in a "Meeting".

    I worked at NASCAR full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice location and someone flexible schedules. Good foot in the door for production or racing industry. Embraces technology.

    Cons

    Old fashioned in structure and growth outlook, sees everything fiscally and not creatively which is not good for an entertainment company. HR runs the show and not department managers which is unfortunate.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace young talent and be open to change and not just hearsay or rumors. Promote based on talent and track record and not loyalists who will undermine others for their own advancement. Continue to fine-tune staffing to multi-skilled and hard workers.

    Pros

    Fast paced, great benefits, awesome experiences

    Cons

    bad pay, bad management, retainment very low

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more importance, pay needs to be way better, how can a coordinator pay for travel upfront if not making enough

    I worked at NASCAR (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Being a contract video editor was awesome... if you did great work, they would definitely call you back. I made great money while living in Charlotte.

    Cons

    I saw many good full time workers get fired for the sake of the bottom line and it was tragic that they lost so many hard workers that started with the company before they moved to the Nascar building downtown.

    Advice to Management

    You get what you pay for...

    I worked at NASCAR full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Not very many pros I can think of other than the building is nice and you do get to work with the latest technology. Some very nice people to work with.

    Cons

    The pay is low they expect you to be on call and working 24 x7. Work life balance stinks. Very much a good ole boy club. Young and middle aged men are promoted easily and quickly. Very clickish if you don't fit in are a little nerdy you won't move up. No processes are followed if management wants it you better get it to them and they always want it yesterday. Salary is very low compared to industry and even lower for women. Some managers are allowed to act very unprofessional. A lot of discrimination is still quite evident and so glad to be now working at a place I am recognized.

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of very educated highly skilled women that work there and need to be recognized. You are missing out and losing valuable assets. More eyes need to be on management they are allowed to do what ever they want with no supervision from upper level management.
