    Pros

    Great people to work with! Casual environment and you can wear jeans daily. Treated like adults, people trust you to get your work done. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Runs slim, so you have multiple responsibilities. Not a lot of opportunities for advancement unless you have a very traditional career path.

    Advice to Management

    HR has no real presence and coaches need coaching.

    I worked at Yum! full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Fun culture
    - Good work life balance
    - Decent compensation packages

    Cons

    - If you work at Yum, you'll have a great time. But know that the fun culture on the surface is only one piece. Politics are RAMPANT at Yum. You won't likely keep your job (let alone move up) if the right people don't see the work you're doing at the right time.
    - Recognition culture is great, but the politics creep their way in again. If you don't constantly recognize other people (even when it's not truly merited) you'll be thought of as a 'bad culture fit'. Recognition should be about the person RECEIVING the recognition, not about the person GIVING the recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Yum would be a great place to work if the office politics and posturing got reigned in. Also, figure out how to make the great recognition culture something authentic rather than a political tool.

    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.
