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

Pros

Lots of perks..fitness center, various Yum! food brand options, convenient location and a fun recognition atmosphere.

Cons

Their continual downsizing and turnover. Being expected to continually be involved with all the recognition antics when the time could be better spent on getting work done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper Management needs to listen and show more concern for the workers.

    I worked at Yum! full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great matching 401k plan and some good co-workers

    Cons

    24/7 culture, no vacations without constant calls, management has a have/have not superior attitude, they say it's great pay but when you end up working the extra hours constantly and give up your personal life it's not worth it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees fair and equal, share the wealth and spread the work/life balance across the company and not just for management

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

    I worked at Yum! full-time (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!
