    Pros

    Great competent team members. Team members are dedicated to doing a good job! good recognition culture .. but can be superfacial.

    Cons

    10+ yrs ago great place to work. Your efforts were recognized and rewarded. Since then the good old boy network kicked in. Once someone puts you in a box .. its never getting out. They also use terms like going for breakthrough results to get people to sacrifice there children to the work place.

    Advice to Management

    Image is not the way to determine leadership. You need to look at accomplishments of individuals.


  2. Nice place to intern but be prepared to do the dirty work.

    Pros

    Learned a lot from my team and manager. Treated me as part of the team even though I were only there for 3 months as an intern. Very open workplace office. Met full time scientists that went to same college for network. Had regular interaction with management. Great company culture.

    Cons

    Drama in other departments. During the three months I were there I saw 3 upper level managers that had worked for Yum for over 10 years be let go. Lots of politics. If your not with the in crowd be prepared to be demoted or moved. Saw this happen several times. Intern pay not too good.

    Advice to Management

    Value your scientists that are doing the constant product evaluations. Check up on resturants, their quality standards do not match yours.

    Pros

    - Strong work/life balance - career advancement opportunities for strong performers - great review/feedback process - recognition-driven culture

    Cons

    - big variance in talent levels between functions and brands - marketing processes and resources (especially in insights) should be elevated (not at same levels as CPG)

    Advice to Management

    Company is consumer driven and therefore organization should focus more on building a world-class marketing organization much like leading CPGs, which would help it retain top marketing talent. The company has a great culture, but falls into some of the trappings of retail organizations, focused too much on daily sales rather than building strong and vibrant brands over time. Overall, the company's people-focused culture truly makes it unique.

    Pros

    - recognition culture - great people - great pay - good benefits

    Cons

    - very performance related and sometime politically related' - good people managed out because they did not get along with current management twice a year reviews so you knew where you stood company is selling a lot of US stores. International is the only good place left to work

    Advice to Management

    You are forcing 20+ year people out. These are the people who know your business from an Operations perspective. It's no wonder store operations continue to suffer. There used to be standards that were enforced, just not talked about.

    Pros

    It all depends on where you work. The better the store manager and their direction, the more you will love to work there. It's fine to boost revenue and be quick but customers matter as well. When customers aggravate you, you feel aggravated throughout the day. If the manager allows you to please the customers with perks when they are dissatisfied, then things flow so much smoother. I can not emphasize this enough. Happy customers. Happy workers.

    Cons

    The store managers demand more revenue and quick output without putting more emphasis on both output and customer relations.

    Advice to Management

    The better the manager, the better your employees will be at handling customers. Constantly train them on behavior and pleasing the customers.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Culture values people. I would recommend to others. Ability to transfer between three leading restaurant brands.

    Cons

    Compensation is low. Lots of "recognition" but nothing tied to compensation and promotion. Challenging to get ahead as not a meritocracy. Lots of political motivations for promotions or lack thereof.

    Pros

    Employee recognition is #1 here.

    Cons

    Too political to get the opportunities to grow your career!

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in consistent employees vs. the younger generation....they just leave in 2 years and that investment leaves with them!!
