    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.

    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 Management

    Treat your employees fair and equal, share the wealth and spread the work/life balance across the company and not just for management

    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 Management

    Forecast accurately.
