    I have been working at Yum! full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Salaries and Benefits.
    Great Top Leadership, at high level, reputations in the industry which helps stock price
    International outreach - Opportunity to travel
    Get in good with the leaders and show them what you got and you will advance

    Cons

    Very political so you need to know how to navigate through the politics to get noticed and promoted
    Competitive at almost all levels so assertiveness is a plus otherwise you won't go anywhere
    Hard to get hired - Must have high education and experience or know someone in the company
    Mid Managers focus on their own growth they don't follow through on team members personal of professional growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train mid manager to learn how to manage people before promoting them to managerial positions

    I worked at Yum!

    Pros

    Ability to work from home if needed. Pay is good.

    Cons

    Ability to work from home if needed = you are expected to be available outside of office hours on a regular basis. Major emphasis on organizational hierarchy. Upper level management (VPs) are totally disconnected from their teams.

    I worked at Yum! full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    At the location I was at, my co-workers are the reason I stayed so long. It was a "home" atmosphere.
    It is easy to move up in the company.

    Cons

    Management needs to get a handle on things. I was a shift lead, because of their dis-organization, I now decline any offer as a management position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Taco bill needs people who actually care about what happens with the company, as well as their employees.

    Get area coaches that can help and not just tell to fix things and then not give proper means to correct them.
