I worked at Yum!

Pros

The pay is high and the benefits are good as they are considered one of the top companies to work for in Louisville, KY

Cons

The politics are consuming and a person has to learn it on their own to succeed. The culture that is posted on the walls, is not what is lived out by management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The leadership needs to learn how to communicate more directly and concise in the vision they are developing. The leadership can concentrate more on politics than focusing on assisting the employees to do the best job as possible. They also need to not play favorites!

    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

    I worked at Yum!

    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.
