Never boring. always on the go!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ProsWorked as a team always sharing ...BDPs

ConsIf you want, you could work seven days a week. Your work is never done. The years go quickly.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't look at internationa as your only major asset. Domestic is vital to one's success as well.

Great Place to Work

Associate Manager (Current Employee)
Louisville, KY

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

ProsBelief in People! Employees are given the tools and autonomy to do their job. People are encouraged to take risks. There is some movement towards work/life balance.

ConsSome areas of the company are not given the overall respect for their contributions.

Advice to Senior ManagementEnsure all areas are given equal respect for their contributions. Althought operations and marketing drive our core business, remember all functions serve a purpose and deliver results helping YUM achieve excellent EPS.

Great company to work for- very supportive of family and individual needs

Senior District Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Yum! full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat brands, very proud to work for YUM. Always trying to find ways to make the work easier for their employees and delight customers. Have found ways to reward employees down to the front line team members. Give the stores and ARLs access to funds to recognize the teams even for simple things done well.

ConsAlmost all of the Senior management is men. Reflective of the entire industry and an older Franchise driven community also dominated by men, but wish that YUM would take a stronger stand to help more women leaders emerge.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit reorganizing the field every year- look for ways to mentor and develop a more diverse leadership team to include more minorities and women.
