Nice place to intern but be prepared to do the dirty work.

I worked at Yum!

Pros

Learned a lot from my team and manager. Treated me as part of the team even though I were only there for 3 months as an intern. Very open workplace office. Met full time scientists that went to same college for network. Had regular interaction with management. Great company culture.

Cons

Drama in other departments. During the three months I were there I saw 3 upper level managers that had worked for Yum for over 10 years be let go. Lots of politics. If your not with the in crowd be prepared to be demoted or moved. Saw this happen several times. Intern pay not too good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your scientists that are doing the constant product evaluations. Check up on resturants, their quality standards do not match yours.

    I worked at Yum!

    Pros

    Fast-paced, meet a lot of people

    Cons

    Poor upper-level management, low pay for associates means constant turnover and high expectations of them for too-little pay. I managed a multi-brand concept store and it was an epic failure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify, organize, consistently train

    I have been working at Yum!

    Pros

    Challenge, pay, diversity, job experiences

    Cons

    Place is highly political; rules don't apply to HR; promotes bad behavior - the bigger the stink you make, the more you get away with; YRi Finance is infamous for being a burn 'em and churn 'em group - (particularly now); investment in great innovation a waste because company lacks effective Leadership - no directon at alllll

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on company's key priorities and listen to the people...not HR.
