    I worked at Yum! as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Yum definitely has a good work life balance. The culture is wonderful. This place has a great opportunity for experience for those getting ready to graduate and enter the work force.

    Cons

    The direction of the company is too marketing driven. The work hours at times can be long depending on the projects that you are working on.

    I worked at Yum! full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work life balance is the job's biggest perks. Hours may be long during certain projects but no one is standing by the door to make sure you are in by 8.

    Cons

    The company culture has changed dramatically since I first worked there. This was once one of the best places to work in Louisville and I use to recommend it, during the last years of my employment, it slowly started to gain a body shop feel. Recruiting any talent or hiring interns full time became difficult since no one wanted to work there.

    The pay and benefits are not great, while not bottom of the barrel bad, you can find the same job (IT jobs) in the Louisville area paying over 20% more with better health insurance.

    I seen this place lay off very talented young individuals over people who had 5+ year experience who could not do 25% off what laid off person could do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to value IT and understand there is a lot of untracked work they do for the company. The moves you have made against your IT has caused ALL the talent to leave. It may not slow down tacos sales but walk around and ask the end users/clients of your IT on how they feel about the changes.

    We use to say we worked for Yum! Brands with pride and felt like we was apart of something. Now, I mumble it when I talk to people and glad I'm no longer there.

    Pros

    Challenging work because of scale; upward growth potential, recognition culture is great (when taken seriously), lot of great folks, dedicated and passionate.

    Cons

    Can be cliq-ish... beware the boys club mentality as you move upward... constant pressure of aggressive performance targets can causes work/life balance issues...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower the people you have working for you. You just might be surprised at what could be accomplished.

    I worked at Yum! full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Bonus structure was excellent for salaried employees, as a senior worker bee my target bonus was 8%, which even in bad years was a decent lump of cash.
    Excellent amenities for workers.
    Decent health insurance plan. Was awesome, now just competitive.

    Cons

    Lots of 9-5 mentality. Heroes that fix problems they create get recognized. Big annual layoffs and restructuring for the last 4-5 years I was there. Not much challenge for a technical person. Big emphasis on style over substance. Recognition culture went from fun to lip service to a horrible chore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't care to support people be skilled at a job function, just go ahead and stop doing that function.

    Pros

    Great matching 401k plan and some good co-workers

    Cons

    24/7 culture, no vacations without constant calls, management has a have/have not superior attitude, they say it's great pay but when you end up working the extra hours constantly and give up your personal life it's not worth it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees fair and equal, share the wealth and spread the work/life balance across the company and not just for management
