    I worked at Interstate Bakeries full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learned a great deal there.

    Cons

    They closed their doors for good. Both management and the unions were fanatically at odds. Management dissipated countless opportunities to turn things around. In the end the misguided baker's union, led by a few old school union brass, brought the entire company down. It was a pity. The products were still great.

    Advice to Management
