yum is a great place to gain experience, but the politics can be tiring

I worked at Yum!

Pros

strong analytically, company values intelligent leaders who speak their mind. culture is great - recognition is very important. worldwide company, so relocation is possible if you are interested.

Cons

politics is the worst part at yum. navigating how to present an idea, how it will be received, the specifics words to use, who to pitch it to first, how to work behind the scenes, etc. just tiring after a while. company would be better served by being more direct - letting ideas and work stand for themselves.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

reduce bureaucracy, be intentional around developing talent, adopt a rotational approach to leadership development where people get short-term assignments in other groups to broaden their experience

    Pros

    While working for YUM!, there were some great survey opportunities to taste test their food - had Pizza once a month to test the markets. The food was great, the people were nice enough, and the pay was great.

    Cons

    Say one thing but do another. Odd behavior displayed when in a financial crunch. Was unlucky timing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forecast accurately.

    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.
