If you want your career to die, Element K is for you.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Rochester, NY

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

ConsIf 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 Senior ManagementBe 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Relaxed environment, but little incentive and iffy management

    Instructional Designer (Current Employee)
    Rochester, NY

    I have been working at Element K


    Pros: Relaxed dress code - shorts in the summer. Flexible hours - management is very understanding about family and health time off and making up… Cons: Little incentive provided in any way - no bonuses, only token recognition at poorly attended staff meetings,… Advice to Senior Management: Make more of an effort to appropriately qualify accounts while maintaining reasonable customer expectations. A US based workforce can not compete with overseas based companies… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
