It is a company with a nice working environment but it lacks structure, management that is not forced to grow!

I have been working at Yum!

Pros

Is a company that is big in recognition
Has three main brands with different challenges, you can learn from the three of them very different skills

Cons

Management is old fashioned and have been in the same position for too long.
It is a conservative culture
Career advancement is not clearly defined.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Structure career progression. Nobody should be in a position for more than 5 years.
Learn from other industries. Use more research to build know how, too much relies on implement and see what happens.

    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.

    Pros

    Great competent team members. Team members are dedicated to doing a good job! good recognition culture .. but can be superfacial.

    Cons

    10+ yrs ago great place to work. Your efforts were recognized and rewarded. Since then the good old boy network kicked in. Once someone puts you in a box .. its never getting out. They also use terms like going for breakthrough results to get people to sacrifice there children to the work place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Image is not the way to determine leadership. You need to look at accomplishments of individuals.
