Pros

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

Cons

Promotion based on employee potential instead of actual. results. If you are over 50+, don't even bother to apply.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    Bonus structure was excellent for salaried employees, as a senior worker bee my target bonus was 8%, which even in bad years was a decent lump of cash.
    Excellent amenities for workers.
    Decent health insurance plan. Was awesome, now just competitive.

    Cons

    Lots of 9-5 mentality. Heroes that fix problems they create get recognized. Big annual layoffs and restructuring for the last 4-5 years I was there. Not much challenge for a technical person. Big emphasis on style over substance. Recognition culture went from fun to lip service to a horrible chore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't care to support people be skilled at a job function, just go ahead and stop doing that function.
