    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

    Great work experience, and opportunities to learn skills. Get to travel the country following the tour.

    Cons

    Poorly paid, over worked, have to be available pretty much 24/7 from Feb. - Nov. and work 40-60 hour weeks when you travel. Not much room for promotions or any pay raises. They pay cheap and hire young.

    Pros

    Exciting atmosphere and great peers. Interesting environment to work in as well as a great part of town.

    Heavy amounts of favoritism and negativity with my supervisor in particular. Complete lack of communication and sense of partnership. Some of upper management seem to think they are celebrities.

    Learn to communicate better to your direct reports. Learn to include everyone on your team in your team activities.
