    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.
