    Great Experiences

    Louisville, KY

    ProsYum definitely has a good work life balance. The culture is wonderful. This place has a great opportunity for experience for those getting ready to graduate and enter the work force.

    ConsThe direction of the company is too marketing driven. The work hours at times can be long depending on the projects that you are working on.

    Smart leaders with relentless pursue of value and growth

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsMany smart people with great people skills. Recognition culture is real and alive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the high growth markets, and promote executives in Operations in stead of Marketing so to be consistent with the strategy.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great culture, fun company, personal development challenging

    Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat company to work for. Culture values people. I would recommend to others. Ability to transfer between three leading restaurant brands.

    ConsCompensation is low. Lots of "recognition" but nothing tied to compensation and promotion. Challenging to get ahead as not a meritocracy. Lots of political motivations for promotions or lack thereof.

    Cashier (Current Employee)

    ProsIt all depends on where you work. The better the store manager and their direction, the more you will love to work there. It's fine to boost revenue and be quick but customers matter as well. When customers aggravate you, you feel aggravated throughout the day. If the manager allows you to please the customers with perks when they are dissatisfied, then things flow so much smoother. I can not emphasize this enough. Happy customers. Happy workers.

    ConsThe store managers demand more revenue and quick output without putting more emphasis on both output and customer relations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe better the manager, the better your employees will be at handling customers. Constantly train them on behavior and pleasing the customers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
