I worked at Wolters Kluwer full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Products number one in the marketplace. Esteemed in professional circles. Dominant lines. Competition is far behind

Cons

More and more managers are hired from outside without a clue about the products, markets, the culture. They also lack basic management skills. Hard for good ideas to get an airing. The long term market domination is in danger of fading without concern from management whose main goal is to just "move forward".

Advice to Management

Listen to ideas from employees. Don't be so quick to dismiss them.

    I worked at Wolters Kluwer full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, strong and recognized band in the B2B Publishing industry, recognized as an industry leader in both publishing and software, and part of Wolters Kluwer, a Global enterprise.

    Cons

    Difficult transition from traditional publishing environment to online/mobile. Print revenue is in decline. Customers are finding other resources to do their research online which are not as expensive or free. Delivery of flagship Tax SaaS software suite has experienced multi-year delays which lead to revenue challenges in recent quarters. Where is the young innovative talent?

    Advice to Management

    Determine whether the company specializes in publishing/professional research or is a software company and focus in one direction. Mediocre performance in one area seems to drag on the overall profitability of this company. Consider outsourcing development of the software suite to focus on leveraging the strong brand to improve sales.
