    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Work life balance. Half day and casual Fridays are nice. Great cafeteria and special events with the 3 brands in Louisville. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Pay is very poor for the area. Little to no room for advancement and raises. Bonuses are small and laughable.

    Advice to Management

    To better recruit and not keep the revolving door theory, this is a franchise run company and they are getting tired of being told what to do by a different person every 2 years.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.

    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

    Great salary and job locations as well as interaction with other managers.
