    I worked at Hostess Brands full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Being able to get out and deal with customers on a daily basis. Also, providing a service to the community by distributing a commodity.

    Cons

    Management was very secretive about what was really going on with the company, maybe their way of keeping employees there until the end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No need to give advice, they ran the company into the ground.
