Loved and was loyal to the brand, but left broken hearted after being pushed out at 51.

I worked at Yum! full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Lot of recognition
Generally pay raises based on performance

Cons

at 50 you now have a target on your back. They want you gone. They have left more people go over 50 in the last 5 years then I bet they did in the first 30 years of existence. It's a shame that Novak who is over 50 does not value people with tenure who made him successful. The same for the Lawyer, the HR SVP, the Media VP, and other all who are on the senior team, collecting millions in options each year, yet finding it OK to terminate or ask people over 50 to leave.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

David, you have been there a long time. You've tried many times to have great operations and it never had happened. Cutting labor, too many products, skimping on quality by cutting costs everywhere you go is only making you rich and the brand poor and inn bad shape. You forgive remodels when the brands at KFC and Pizza Hut are old in order to get concessions that line the pockets of executive. Your tenants state franchisees are partners yet you have senior management in place that thinks nothing about lying to them and it is tolerated. No organization is perfect, but it is very hard to see you and your team getting rich at the expense of the very people who supported you. Shame on you. Karma will come around!

    Pros

    Belief in People! Employees are given the tools and autonomy to do their job. People are encouraged to take risks. There is some movement towards work/life balance.

    Cons

    Some areas of the company are not given the overall respect for their contributions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure all areas are given equal respect for their contributions. Althought operations and marketing drive our core business, remember all functions serve a purpose and deliver results helping YUM achieve excellent EPS.
