    Pros

    The PTO policy is excellent.

    Cons

    For the last several years, the organization has undergone a significant reduction in force, with little to no relief in day-to-day tasks. While most people are accustomed to "doing more with less", Wolters Kluwer CCH takes this adage to new heights.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We understand the importance of maximizing shareholder value, but executive management needs to recognize that part of what will help to drive that value is retaining top talent from the bottom up. The employees feel overworked, under-appreciated, and have less loyalty to the company than ever before.

    I worked at Wolters Kluwer full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There aren't any anymore. Used to be a 4 to 4.5 star company, but it's lost it's way through an endless series of revolving door management changes. It's just another struggling company now that thinks it can keep cutting heads and expenses until it is profitable; the classic downward death spiral.

    Cons

    Zero chance for any promotion. Any slot that comes open, is automatically filled with an outsider. The job you are hired for is the one you will be at when you leave, whether 2 or 20 years later. It's a multi-national corporation that doesn't have a training department, or even spend or budget one nickel on training - think about that. The place is absolutely obsessed about their insane BDP's (business development plans) and budgets. They spend 9 months each year arguing what the numbers should be for the next year and initiating various cuts, instead of growing the business, grooming people and taking entrepreneurial risks. Then they start the insanity all over again 3 months later. It's a protracted disease like nothing you've ever seen anywhere, and is driven by a Dutch finance spendthrift mentality that all other companies have abandoned 50 years ago. It is not really a corporation at all, just a loose group of companies running wild, with a deep fear of any central control and fearful of any change. The few folks who are in the central control spots are fearful of exercising any power or authority for fear of losing their jobs, and tend to just go with the flow and make least common denominator decisions that offend no one. When Congress gets around to passing a flat tax, this company will go under in the U.S.
