    I worked at Element K

    Pros

    The benefits are not bad, but getting worse.
    The people are generally nice to work with.
    It is a casual, yet professional atmosphere.

    Cons

    If you want your career to die, Element K is for you.
    You can expect more work, for less pay, year after year.
    If parent company NIIT has their way, your job may be transitioned over to India. (Though lots of people are in disbelief.)
    No opportunities for career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more truthful about the situation. Do not tell everyone things are ok, when things are not ok. Adjust your expectations to match the size of the work force instead of fostering failure after failure.
