Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Hostess Brands

ProsHostess has solid financial backing and solid brands. Everyone wants to see the company succeed. Employees are loyal and hardworking.

ConsThe company has not successfully grown revenues. Its market share and quality are currently too weak to develop positive momentum.
