    I have been working at Yum! full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great brands, very proud to work for YUM. Always trying to find ways to make the work easier for their employees and delight customers. Have found ways to reward employees down to the front line team members. Give the stores and ARLs access to funds to recognize the teams even for simple things done well.

    Cons

    Almost all of the Senior management is men. Reflective of the entire industry and an older Franchise driven community also dominated by men, but wish that YUM would take a stronger stand to help more women leaders emerge.

    Advice to Management

    Quit reorganizing the field every year- look for ways to mentor and develop a more diverse leadership team to include more minorities and women.

    Pros

    Belief in People! Employees are given the tools and autonomy to do their job. People are encouraged to take risks. There is some movement towards work/life balance.

    Some areas of the company are not given the overall respect for their contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure all areas are given equal respect for their contributions. Althought operations and marketing drive our core business, remember all functions serve a purpose and deliver results helping YUM achieve excellent EPS.

    Pros

    Flexible weekend hours, great conversational supervisors; The Social Hive in the Public Affairs dept. is full of friendly, supportive people.

    Continue to find ways to make the job more efficient to do with fewer employees.
