    I have been working at Yum! full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Salaries and Benefits.
    Great Top Leadership, at high level, reputations in the industry which helps stock price
    International outreach - Opportunity to travel
    Get in good with the leaders and show them what you got and you will advance

    Cons

    Very political so you need to know how to navigate through the politics to get noticed and promoted
    Competitive at almost all levels so assertiveness is a plus otherwise you won't go anywhere
    Hard to get hired - Must have high education and experience or know someone in the company
    Mid Managers focus on their own growth they don't follow through on team members personal of professional growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train mid manager to learn how to manage people before promoting them to managerial positions

  7. I worked at Yum!

    Pros

    Great people who are commuted to constant improvement of themselves, and the brands they serve and build.

    Cons

    There can be some politics in getting things executed, and at times I'm not sure the best idea always saw the light of day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that although you may eat the food occasionally, you are not the typical customer.
