Pros

When I started at Element K, it had a wonderful, family-like atmosphere. I loved going to work every day and really thought it was the best job I had ever had. The team I worked with was extremely supportive, and they organization had many traditions that contributed to the wonderful feeling.

Cons

Management has no idea what it takes to make the product they sell, and they figure as long as it has Element K's name on it, it's good enough. There is no connection with the end users of the product.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to your customers, and listen to the people that actually make your product.

    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.
