    I worked at NASCAR full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Senior leadership is great. The company has really listened to its employess and made changes to increase retention. Leadership creates an open environment that makes it easy to communicate issues and get quick solutions and direction.

    Cons

    It's a traveling business, so there's a high probability you will have to travel. Pay isn't so great for new low and middle managers. You have to pay your dues to get raises. It's hard to maintain a family life with the schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your low level coordinators and managers are not getting burned out with travel.

    I worked at NASCAR full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    NASCAR is a unique environment that will definetly grow your career. You will have the opportunity to be exposed to situations that are extremely unique. The company has really made positive changes in the last few years to increase retention and promote a work/life balance.Car program is very nice.

    Cons

    You're going to travel unless you're at the coordinator level in a support department role like, risk, legal, or finanace. Some days you'll need a very thick skin. Pay isn't great unless you've been there a while.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure lower level people aren't getting burned out and under compensated.

    The internship program is organized really well with meeting and networking with executives.
    Almost everyone there seem to be really good people.

    Cons

    I was an intern so I can't complain- maybe the pay?

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the sport!

    I have been working at NASCAR full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    NASCAR execs are willing to promote from within and reward hard work. Benefits are great and people really care.

    Cons

    There can be a lot of travel making it difficult to set boundaries. The culture, as everywhere, is if you have a cell phone, you are available. But again, that makes boundary setting less than ideal.

    Advice to Management

    More time off during the week, please when I travel on weekends. And 3 weeks vacation is great, but for those of us with a long track record, more time off would be wonderful.

    I have been working at NASCAR full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    NASCAR is an innovative company that is looking forward all the time. It is a great place to dig in an apply what you know. You can really make a difference in most areas of the company.

    Cons

    Because NASCAR is so large and has so many unique business areas, it is sometimes hard to get a picture of all aspects of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue making an effort to get to know employees at all levels of the organization and find ways to develop talent within the organization.

    Awesome people to work with. Knowledgeable and experienced in all facets of competition and marketing. NASCAR fans are among the most dedicated in the world.

    Always remember to surround yourself with greatness. Those who do for you are the ones who get you your product expectation

    I have been working at NASCAR full-time

    Pros

    If you are looking to work in sports, NASCAR is an exciting place to be right now. Lots of change going on from top down, and excellent people throughout the organization. Can be a lot of growth opportunity, depending upon your job. Solid benefits package.

    Cons

    Common to hear from most that compensation can be on the lower end of the range for entry level jobs, so hard to bring in new people. Hours can be tough at times as NASCAR has a long season.
