    Pros

    I liked the third shift. I liked keeping busy. I liked working with other people.I liked doing the paper work.

    Cons

    I didn't like when a trailer was late with the product to be shipped out. We were not kept busy while waiting. I would rather be kept busy working at a steady pas than to have down time.

    Advice to Management

    Work well with others, and try working as a team to get the task at hand done together and efficiently.

    Pros

    Great new fast-paced innovative company that has potential to change the landscape of the Sweet Snacking industry

    Cons

    Fast-pace may not always allow for best analysis of consumer insights to help guide best decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Being understaffed doesn't allow me or my team the full benefit of our expertise. We are often too busy just trying to 'get stuff done' to be able to really add the value of our insights.....an unfortunate miss.

    Pros

    Good people to work with as far as fellow employees was concern. Independent work flow was the normal procedure. Planning work flow was each individual responsibility.

    Cons

    Company went bankrupt Chapter 13. Management in the middle level was corrupt and looked at employees as slaves,crooks and property to do the wishes as they see fit. There was never as conversation as teamwork concept just a dictatorial mandate from those middle managers. Middle managers was the reason the company folded. Very Sad!

    Advice to Management

    Not really much one can say about a company that filled Chapter 13. I just hope that former middle managers from the company is not employed in your company.
