    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.

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

    Pros

    My individual boss was awesome, he understood the difficulty of my job and gave me freedom and trusted me to make decisions that I thought were best for my 34 TB locations and creating a new facilities management system from the ground up

    Cons

    I chose to give this company everything thing I had to offer many days 18 + hours a day without complaint more locations then any other tech in the country and I did it with joy.
    Then it was time to restructure and as part of the restructuring my New Boss started giving me impossible tasks to complete, his mission was to fire me even though my track records were on the high side compared many techs being tracked for WO
    They totally Screwed me, because some area coach had a friend in mind for my job

    Advice to Management

    Stop the lies, and stop telling people that If you work hard you can become a successful yum brand employee, because you know it's just a lie to keep them working and pay them as little as possible for that one chance to become a successful yum brand employee


  10. "Contractor"

    Pros

    One of the best things is the name recognition worldwide and locally. There is opportunity to learn a variety of things.

    Cons

    Unfortunately contract does not equal employment full-time even though that is how it is presented.
