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 Management

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!

    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 Management

    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

    - Strong work/life balance
    - career advancement opportunities for strong performers
    - great review/feedback process
    - recognition-driven culture

    Cons

    - big variance in talent levels between functions and brands
    - marketing processes and resources (especially in insights) should be elevated (not at same levels as CPG)

    Advice to Management

    Company is consumer driven and therefore organization should focus more on building a world-class marketing organization much like leading CPGs, which would help it retain top marketing talent. The company has a great culture, but falls into some of the trappings of retail organizations, focused too much on daily sales rather than building strong and vibrant brands over time. Overall, the company's people-focused culture truly makes it unique.
