    Pros

    Good people for the most part
    Great benefits
    Great intent on culture
    Intense
    Global experience

    Cons

    David Gibbs, CFO is the most uncouth person I've had the displeasure to work for. Although the company is touted as the best place to work for minority's that doesn't live true at the corporate level. For all the years I worked for David, the only minority in his corporate staff are from past incumbents. The individuals he hired and promoted looks as though they came out of a Brooks Brothers add. Yum is a great place to work to gain global experience but you have to have a thick skin and overlook the continued disparity.
