Pros

Great benefits and wonderful people who really try to help you navigate the huge disorganized mess that is CT Corporation.

Cons

I have no doubt the founding fathers never thought it was going to get this big and bureaucratic. % steps forward and 10 steps back as you navigate through the mess of outdated systems and rules within rules for rules. Also the culture of Ct is massive micro-management. That;'s the only way managers can keep their jobs. 50-70 hour work weeks not uncommon so if you have a family life say goodbye to it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

STOP micromanaging and start learning about how to motivate your workers and trust them.

    I worked at Wolters Kluwer full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, time off is excellent, work schedules are flexible

    Cons

    No loyalty from the company. Worked for the company for 10 years, was let go when boss #9 brought in her former laid off employee as temp. Job was retailored to suit her needs. Management either clueless or non-helpful. No training program established to help you move to another position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in people who know how to manage and to work with the individual staff. Show some loyalty towards the staff you have. Establish training programs for your employees and for people whose positions are being retailored or eliminated. No tolerance for management that show preference to friends instead of staff.

    Pros

    Great benefits and compensation, wonderful people who work together to help each other, overall a happy place to go.

    Cons

    To upper management you're just a number. Some of the lower level managers use counterproductive tactics to try to drive results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up on the training process you outlined, don't just let it fall by the wayside.
