    Great salary and job locations as well as interaction with other managers.

    Poor Training and no upper management direction when needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

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

    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

    I worked at Yum!

    Pros

    While working for YUM!, there were some great survey opportunities to taste test their food - had Pizza once a month to test the markets. The food was great, the people were nice enough, and the pay was great.

    Cons

    Say one thing but do another. Odd behavior displayed when in a financial crunch. Was unlucky timing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forecast accurately.

    I have been working at Yum!

    Pros

    Work life balance. Half day and casual Fridays are nice. Great cafeteria and special events with the 3 brands in Louisville. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Pay is very poor for the area. Little to no room for advancement and raises. Bonuses are small and laughable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To better recruit and not keep the revolving door theory, this is a franchise run company and they are getting tired of being told what to do by a different person every 2 years.

    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.

    Former Employee - Senior, Applications Developer/Technologist in Louisville, KY

    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

    Used to be a great company with significant growth potential, has lost focus on it's people.

    Cons

    You must be willing to do what the company asks of you and you can't say no to an opportunity or you will never be given another chance. The leadership team particularly at KFC is highly disfunctional and has teams running in circles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become aware that there is a true problem in the organization and that good talent is walking out the door every day. Their know how cannot be replaced.
