    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Yum! as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Large Company exposure
    Free food sometimes

    Cons

    IT inept, poor management styles, disorganized, lack of opportunities for growth, buy out of older employees before retirement, heavily contract with no intent to convert to full time. Pizza Hut specifically doesn't understand Project Management or modern development. Too big to fail so anything goes.

    Advice to Management

    Build up your direct reports and stop taking credit for the work they do so you can keep your positions. Understand the work direct reports do so that timelines and costs can be scoped realistically. Do performance reviews of upper management once a year to keep out cogs.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Yum! full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great culture and benefits (four weeks vacation at hire, long maternity leave, good pay).

    Cons

    Continue to push employees to do more with less as the more experienced employees are consistently retired/laid off and an increasing gap between levels. New benefits (vacation, maternity, two-weeks vacation in 10th year) are clearly aimed at new hires and millenials while the seasoned employees are ignored.

    Advice to Management

    It does not go unnoticed that only certain people are promoted and there are fewer opportunities for movement than in the past.

    Pros

    Some pros about pizza hut was it was very difficult for me at first but then i got the hang of it. I love a challenge.

    I started off at min. wage and worked my way up to 9 dollars an hours. Because i am only 17 my GM was not authorized to pay me any higher.
