I worked at Yum! full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

You can build things and watch them grow (to some extent). Fun culture and people are friendly.

Cons

Confused leadership, politics for politics' sake, like to go around in circles.

Advice to Management

Think like leaders. Take risks and prepare to change fast because you are living in the past.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Yum! full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Bonus structure was excellent for salaried employees, as a senior worker bee my target bonus was 8%, which even in bad years was a decent lump of cash.
    Excellent amenities for workers.
    Decent health insurance plan. Was awesome, now just competitive.

    Cons

    Lots of 9-5 mentality. Heroes that fix problems they create get recognized. Big annual layoffs and restructuring for the last 4-5 years I was there. Not much challenge for a technical person. Big emphasis on style over substance. Recognition culture went from fun to lip service to a horrible chore.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't care to support people be skilled at a job function, just go ahead and stop doing that function.
