Overall, it has been a positive experience but the slow-pace of the industry and company makes me restless.

I have been working at Wolters Kluwer full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Work-life balance - time outside work for your own hobbies, family, activities. Great people to work with - attracts people who are not as ambitious or who take part in politicking, who are friendly, and who respect each other. Very open to job rotation for exposure and learning especially for longer-term employees.

Cons

Remuneration (increments and bonuses) is not competitive. Can stifle those who are ambitious and who want to grow very quickly. Rather slow-paced industry combined with a company who wants to change and innovate but is rather sluggish in doing so. Can get used to slower pace and feel complacent to jump back in the rat race if the opportunity presents itself from another company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Departments need to have better and more honest communication and teamwork - currently very diplomatic but loses cutting edge execution. Requires far stronger mentorship and leadership development structure and processes. Although innovation is a key focus, change and ideas are still very slow in being explored and implemented - needs greater investment of resources and management support to succeed.

    I worked at Wolters Kluwer as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    very laid back environment.
    General colleagues are friendly.

    Cons

    they are very political and promotion is only achieved through politics not performance.
    they promise you everything but never keep to them.
    low wage
    high expectation
    could be made redundant at any time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people because they do well not because of your relationship with them and also dont just fire people like its nothing.
