    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Hostess had an iconic product still in demand.

    Cons

    Management failed in so many ways with Hostess, and not just with respect to union contracts. You can't continue to operate the same way you have for 100 years and expect to compete.
