    I worked at Yum! full-time

    Pros

    There are incredibly smart people who who there.

    Cons

    They foster an environment of chaos and back biting. There is very little cooperation between teams... its all just a competition to get promoted with no regard for the state of the business or your teams

    Advice to Management

    Choose a path. So much time and energy are wasted because of poor leadership and indecisiveness.

    I worked at Yum! part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employees and store managers I worked with were fantastic, easy-going, competent, and made it an enjoyable experience. Working as a cashier was a fun job that helped provide more than enough compensation for me at the time. There were good systems in place for conflict resolution and excellence/dealing with secret shoppers or inspections.

    Cons

    The store I worked in was permanently under-staffed due to questionable forecasting/advice that can be traced back to a combination of the store's general manager and the regional manager. We often had lunch or dinner rushes with only 3 or 4 people on shift, which led to large customer wait times and complaints.

    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.

    I worked at Yum! full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company is very good at giving amenities to employees. Having flexible schedule, sick leave days, free snacks, free sodas and other soft drinks.

    Cons

    Professional development is based upon one's ability to be a political asset to your superiors. Top management from other areas influence your work load, have don't affect your score for a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on meritocracy based promotions instead of focusing on political power between areas.
