    Pros

    Employee recognition is #1 here.

    Too political to get the opportunities to grow your career!

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in consistent employees vs. the younger generation....they just leave in 2 years and that investment leaves with them!!

    Pros

    Great matching 401k plan and some good co-workers

    Cons

    24/7 culture, no vacations without constant calls, management has a have/have not superior attitude, they say it's great pay but when you end up working the extra hours constantly and give up your personal life it's not worth it

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees fair and equal, share the wealth and spread the work/life balance across the company and not just for management

    Pros

    Lot of recognition
    Generally pay raises based on performance

    Cons

    at 50 you now have a target on your back. They want you gone. They have left more people go over 50 in the last 5 years then I bet they did in the first 30 years of existence. It's a shame that Novak who is over 50 does not value people with tenure who made him successful. The same for the Lawyer, the HR SVP, the Media VP, and other all who are on the senior team, collecting millions in options each year, yet finding it OK to terminate or ask people over 50 to leave.

    Advice to Management

    David, you have been there a long time. You've tried many times to have great operations and it never had happened. Cutting labor, too many products, skimping on quality by cutting costs everywhere you go is only making you rich and the brand poor and inn bad shape. You forgive remodels when the brands at KFC and Pizza Hut are old in order to get concessions that line the pockets of executive. Your tenants state franchisees are partners yet you have senior management in place that thinks nothing about lying to them and it is tolerated. No organization is perfect, but it is very hard to see you and your team getting rich at the expense of the very people who supported you. Shame on you. Karma will come around!

    Pros

    Belief in People! Employees are given the tools and autonomy to do their job. People are encouraged to take risks. There is some movement towards work/life balance.

    Cons

    Some areas of the company are not given the overall respect for their contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure all areas are given equal respect for their contributions. Althought operations and marketing drive our core business, remember all functions serve a purpose and deliver results helping YUM achieve excellent EPS.

    Create more objective ways to measure authenticity in the culture
    Make sure you're not pressuring anyone to sacrifice personal family time for team building after work

    I have been working at Yum! full-time

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are comparable for the location and industry. Several in-office ammenities for those that desire them (Childcare, Fitness Center).

    Cons

    Culture is not as advertised. Annual re-organizations and job reductions. Heavy politics and bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that the culture is being taught and learned, but living it can be difficult inside the organizational political structure.
