    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 Management

    You 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.

    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 Management

    Forecast accurately.

    Pros

    Challenge, pay, diversity, job experiences

    Cons

    Place 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 Management

    Focus on company's key priorities and listen to the people...not HR.

    Pros

    There 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.

    Cons

    Advancements 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 Management

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

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    No 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 Management

    Listen more. Talk less.

    Pros

    Flexible 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.

    Cons

    Too 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 Management

    Stop promoting people just because you know them. Give the people that actually qualify for the positions an equal opportunity.
