    I have been working at Yum! full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity to create your own development plan. 1/2 day Fridays and great 401(K) match. Great facilities and great daycare for families to leverage.

    Cons

    If you're looking for the Yum! Culture it's not here anymore. The new leadership team doesn't make it a priority, especially the new CPO. If you're looking for stability it's not here. Yum constantly reorganizes and people are always being laid off. It's a common phrase employees say "they used to work here". If you're looking for performance base promotions, it's not here. Yum is extremely political and only people who know the right people get anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck.
