    Pros

    Great manager who works closely with you

    Cons

    Bad CEO due to bankruptcy

    Advice to Management

    keep the base salary before going to commission because it takes more time to ramp up to stay on pace. When you take away the guaranteed salary people cannot work for free. At least do a recoverable draw that could help a person not have to worry about their household.

    Pros

    Allows for creative thinking in the sales arena, as long as you think similarly to management.

    Cons

    Constant micro-management of one's pipeline, forecasting, reforecasting, re-reforcasting. Customer service centers are not local and have no connection nor ownership of client relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing as I'm competi9ng against you now.

    Pros

    A lot of great people giving their all

    Cons

    A company that takes everything it can get from it's employee's with very little to no reward

    Advice to Management

    Employee's have weathered the storm through the C-11 by giving up 10% of their income and relinquishing a modest 401k match and in return there has been only 2 merit increases since 2010 which were meager at best. Restore the 401k program match to improve morral and sales.

    Pros

    I worked for Workflow from the time they bought Relizon. They workplace was clean and organized. They will invest in improvements IF you can show projected savings. They do pay well, if you were on the higher end of the pay scale when hired.

    Cons

    This company used to be not too bad, until they went through C11. After stiffing suppliers, they have to compete with one Hand tied behind their back due to having to pay a premium to get supplies just to operate. The merger is the only way to postpone the inevitable. Many good employees will suffer for the executives mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those doing the work. Reward them, not continue to line your pockets at their expense. They are the ones doing the real work and know how to do their jobs efficiently and would make suggestions on improvements if they were rewarded.

    Pros

    Pay is fair. There are some good people that work there but most of the good people have already left.

    Cons

    Poor benefits. No chance for advancement. There have not been any pay increased for years and that is after they reduced salary by 10%.

    Advice to Management

    When will management learn that eliminating good people is not the way to improve the bottom line.

    Pros

    WFO does have some good technology and plants. Tim Tatman should have been CEO years ago and is a good man.

    Cons

    Continued take-aways from employees, the complete destruction of sales service, the people who made these decison and implemented them all got fired. Customers left in droves because orders could not get placed and deliveries were 4 weeks late. Then Ch. 11 made it a perfect storm. Entire sales departments left the company taking the clients with them. The companyy is losing the game to Std Reg. No investment for the future. Local managers had to drink the Koolaid or get canned.

    Advice to Management

    The company is run by the same equity group that broke up Hostess and will probably do the same. Sell the digital group, the plants and the distribution Centers separately, but who will buy them? I give it about 12 more months before this happens.

    Pros

    There are some really great, dedicated, loyal and hard working people in this company. That fact alone has helped me through some difficult times at WFO.

    Cons

    There is an unfortunate disconnect from ownership/senior staff with the general workforce (the ones doing all the heavy lifting). Decisions made prior to the C-11 are haunting the efforts of the company today to push forward. The major lay-offs during and after the bankruptcy left many areas lacking for good talent only to be replaced with low salaried ineffecient individuals lacking in subject matter experience or expertice. Contributions made by individuals are minimized creating an environment where employees do not feel appreciated for work done or sacrifices made on behalf of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Focussing soley on improving sales and ignoring the people who get the work done on a daily basis will continue to cause a hemorrhaging of excellent talent which you can ill afford to lose since workload demands in many cases have tripled for individuals. Paying more for experienced employees who can handle the heavier workloads is much better than letting the talent go and replacing them with inexperienced cheap labor (that just won't work for the long run)

    Pros

    There are a lot of good people that work here, unfortunately they are not recoginized or rewarded for their hard work.

    Cons

    No one will step up to the bat for their team. I have never worked at a company with so many 'Yes" managers. They are ALL so afraid to make a decision it can be weeks before you can get an answer to anything because they all have to ask each other what to do. Let alone get a straight answer out of a manager.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your team and think outside the box. The management team needs to be more proactive than reactive.
