    Pros

    You can grow into different fields with the company, the evinornement is very laid back, and the people in this company make it worth coming in every day.

    Cons

    The pay is not that great and there are many long hours. Its hard to change things that haven't worked in years because management is set in their ways.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, time-off policies, chance to work with wonderful, caring, and bright people.

    Cons

    No career advancement, no internal training (although emphasis is put on personal growth during performance appraisals - so just do it on your own time and your own dime). There is only so far the company will let you grow. Once you are there, they would rather hire from outside the company and keep your talents in the dead end job.

    Advice to Management

    Develop from within...

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, relaxed environment & dress code, appreciation for family and work/life balance. The people that work at Element K are friendly, very smart, and demonstrate a great deal of respect for diversity. There was (at least was when I worked there) a corporate shut down every 4th of July week, which gave everyone a chance to relax over the summer. There are internal systems in place for employees to network with each other, form discussion groups, and connect beyond work related tasks.

    Cons

    Limited career paths, heavy focus on overseas outsourcing, much more attention paid to offshore workers career needs rather than a balanced approach for total company. Depending on the department you work in, you could make a better than average salary or a lower than average salary. No 401k matching (was taken away when I was there, along with gym memberships and incentive plans, but some or all may be back now. Unsure.)

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward accomplishments consistently, across all departments.
