    Pros

    Significant investments in the last year in developing Sales Staff and supporting Sales Leadership to foster a culture of high performance. Thoroughly enjoyable place to work. You'll work hard, but you'll be supported and recognized along the way. Leadership appreciates a "can-do" attitude and (from personal experience) takes feedback and criticism seriously...striving to do what's best for the organization.

    Cons

    If you aren't a self-starter, don't come. Sales is very decentralized with many work from home team members and corporate infrastructure is somewhat lacking...you have to be tenacious sometimes to get things done. There are significant investments being made in Sales Operations & Support, so things are improving and expected to continue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on communication, transparency, and building a high-energy culture that recognizes and rewards performance.

    Pros

    Good benefits and salary. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Internal positions are created and filled without the position ever having been posted. Favoritism from managers to specific team members. Major software development mistakes and delays caused cancelled customer contracts and customer dissatisfaction and ultimately led to a "reorganization" of the team. Middle managers=secret keepers. A lot of frustration and dissension has occurred in the past couple of years.

    Pros

    The sales management team in the Tax & Accounting division is committed to excellence. This has never been more evident than watching them invest in their skills and craft as leaders. There are a ton of things right with this business and Wolters Kluwer is a place to come and grow your sales career.

    Cons

    The accounting marketplace can be difficult. You need to up for the challenge!

    Pros

    Getting to read these flowery fluff reviews is funny! The Company has good benefits, family matters but that culture is being erroded.

    Cons

    TAA Leadership. If you are a yes man and like to be under payed while flying 100k miles per year, with no training and invisible bosses this is the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop asking your Sr Leaders to meet so much and take the budget money saved and get some Mgmt training.

    I worked at Wolters Kluwer full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great products and for the most part good people to work with. @ CCH you have some one of the best reputations in the industry and you are able to leverage that every day.

    Cons

    Always some change on the horizon and the communication of those changes is almost always poorly done and unknown until the very last minute when senior management announces the change. Transparency is a farce at the company and once you are in one business unit it is very difficult transfer into another so you find yourself stuck in neutral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please communicate better with your front line managers so they can in turn not look so silly in front of their teams when these changes come down the pipe line.
