I worked at Element K full-time (More than 10 years)
The people that I worked with at Element K are incredibly fun, honest, hardworking geniuses. People were creative, working together to offer the best in class online training options to corporate clients. I learned more from the people at Element K that I could have learned in 20 years of collage. The corporate and personal values were unparalleled.
Element K was located in Rochester, NY where the is never enough good weather. In good times, employees were hired at high wages, and longer term employees that were hired at lower salaries often were not compensated equally to new hires.
Advice to Management
Continue to listen to the employees who make things happen. Value those that work hard and support them in their efforts to do things well for long term goals. Identify those who always try to find the easy way out and limit their influence/power.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Element K (Rochester, NY) in June 2011.
The company moved very quickly - I submitted application on line, and received a call from the hiring manager 2 days later to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview with hiring manager was great, very relaxed. That was followed up with an in-person interview with the hiring manager, then back another day for two more in-person interviews, one with a potential colleague and one with HR. Atmosphere is very relaxed, not a lot of real "interview" questions, just talking and discussions about my past, and what the new role will be like.
Salary and benefits are decent. I wouldn't say outstanding, but the culture and work/life balance more than makes up for that.
