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

    Pros

    Great pay and for food service decent hours

    Cons

    Lots of nights and weekends. Shrinking margins means less labor dollars so you must do more with less yearly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You must simplify operations to continue to reduce the labor allotment.

    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

    Can learn a lot with the right supervisor.

    Cons

    If you don't have a college degree I would suggest that you don't apply. This company is all about degrees no matter how much experience you have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to look at everybody that does something in a department not just the top level. You have to remember that it is not always the supervisors or managers getting you the information that you may need. It might be someone that is a lower level that has come up everything you need and it is that person you should reward not always management.
