    I worked at NASCAR full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    I worked at NASCAR (More than 3 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

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