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

Pros

The company is focused on innovation and improving products and market share

Cons

Leadership development is a flavor of the month variety if pursued at all. They don't trust established Directors with substantive business (and company) experience to be able to continue double digit growth. GM's do a better job of developing themselves and ingratiating up than truly developing teams of well deserving employees. Overall, not much compassion for employee base. The Houston office just welcomed a new GM. This is an excellent start to unlocking the potential.

Advice to Management

Read about Servant Leadership. If you really want an "engaged workforce" then get the right leaders who lead and not manage.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits - but overall compensation is below average. They will show a plan for average earnings, but no one make plan.

    Cons

    Many situations ranged from bad to unbelievable. A company this size should know better than to have managers that openly discriminate based on gender, age, race, religion - you name it.

    Advice to Management

    Hire right and you wouldn't have to keep fearing / fighting legal battles. Large settlement could have been avoided by terminating the manager or - better yet - a more discriminating hiring practice. No one understands why the manager is still there.

    I have been working at Wolters Kluwer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    PTO= 20 days off, don't do too many layoffs, people are friendly, pay is good but benefits are not

    Cons

    Very difficult to get anything done due to large nature of organization. Impossible to move up within organization as almost always find people from the outside

    Advice to Management

    Try to promote employees from within
