    Great exposure and experience

    Senior Technology Position (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    Pros- recognition culture
    - great people
    - great pay
    - good benefits

    Cons- very performance related and sometime politically related'
    - good people managed out because they did not get along with current management
    twice a year reviews so you knew where you stood
    company is selling a lot of US stores. International is the only good place left to work

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou are forcing 20+ year people out. These are the people who know your business from an Operations perspective. It's no wonder store operations continue to suffer. There used to be standards that were enforced, just not talked about.

    Odd.

    Site Registration Coordinator (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsWhile 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.

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

    YRI is Good for some...not for all

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsChallenge, pay, diversity, job experiences

    ConsPlace 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 Senior ManagementFocus on company's key priorities and listen to the people...not HR.

    Satisfied

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsThere is a strong culture of teamwork, collaboration, and positve energy. Employees are supportive of one another and there is very little backstabbing. Also, management is pretty understanding about time off for family or personal reasons.

    ConsAdvancements and promotions are kind of a mystery. Everyone's performance is measured by achievement of goals, etc., but there is definitely an undefined subjective element which determines which people get promoted faster.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEstablish some sort of process to rotate talent through jobs at the brand level and corporate. Also, better training resources to non-restaurant level employees.

    Great pay but no advancement

    Associate Manager, Architecture and Design (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsGreat pay especially when compared to other jobs in the AEC market.
    Good facilities - gym, day care, food court, and such.
    Recognition is sincere and appreciated in most departments, but not all.

    ConsNo room for advancement - all senior level people so unless someone quits or gets hit by a bus no room to advance.
    Coaching and recognition is talked about but not practiced.
    Way behind on the tech curve - if it can be done in excel than its probably not done at YRI.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen more. Talk less.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Place to Work!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsFlexible time off, work from home, laid back atmosphere, great sr. leadership, always keeping you abreast of what the company is doing. Lots of tenured employees. No one breathing down your back. Work hard/play hard.

    ConsToo many people are in positions because of whom they know, NOT what they know nor what type of education they have. Most of the tenured employees come from the restaurantsand are in high positions and do NOT have a college degree, while individuals with college degrees and higher are in lower positions and it's obvious it doesn't matter. In addition, there is no diversity in management, everyone looks alike.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop promoting people just because you know them. Give the people that actually qualify for the positions an equal opportunity.

    Great place for leaders, but a little past its prime. PepsiCo lite - so why not try PepsiCo instead!

    Senior Director Finance (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsHeritige of being part of PepsiCo gives it higher standards, executive compensation levels, and well qualified people compared with other restaurant companies. Compensation is more performance based than many companies, with higher upsides and downsides on bonuses than many large companies. Stock options have also been a big part of compensation and the company is managed to drive the stock price up.

    ConsWhile the company is well managed and business is growing, the opportunities for employees are not growing as fast because it makes more financial sense for fast food to be run by franchisees instead of by the company itself. This means fewer employees are needed, unless you want to work for or become a franchisee in the future. Yum is also not a great place if you don't like to talk about yourself and how great a job you do. You need to be consious of your image and "personal brand" so that you don't get labelled as an average (or worse) performer, which will hurt you bonus as well as chances for promotion (risky in an "up or out" environment like Yum).

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management seems to much based on personal relationships among top management. You should find a way to make more fact based judgements about people - maybe HR needs to have a stronger role in assessment?
