    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.

    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.

    I worked at Yum!

    Pros

    Great people who are commuted to constant improvement of themselves, and the brands they serve and build.

    Cons

    There can be some politics in getting things executed, and at times I'm not sure the best idea always saw the light of day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that although you may eat the food occasionally, you are not the typical customer.

    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.
