  1. 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 Management

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

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Many smart people with great people skills. Recognition culture is real and alive.

    Cons

    Promotion based on employee potential instead of actual. results. If you are over 50+, don't even bother to apply.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the high growth markets, and promote executives in Operations in stead of Marketing so to be consistent with the strategy.

    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!!
