    I worked at Hostess Brands full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very Challenging work. Never a dull moment We produced and shipped massive amounts of product by team efforts. I enjoyed the workers dedication to quality and timeliness.

    Cons

    Top level execs robbed the company blind and got away with it. They stole pension money from the workers and got away with it. Most of the operational choices made that lost money were made so that they could inflate and misstate those losses. They were not trying to grow the business and make it profitable.

    Advice to Management

    You (collectively) bankrupted the company. I hope an investigation is opened and it is discovered how your corrupt dealings landed you millions while the workers got thrown under the bus...
