I worked at Wolters Kluwer as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Telecommuting was allowed and everyone in the QA department had a laptop and access to all office systems via remote networking.

Cons

All of the job training and 90% of the project managers worked from home/telecommuting. It was really difficult to get a sense of faces and names and teamwork.

Advice to Management

When I left the management was already encouraging all employees in the QA department to spend at least one day of the week in the office and to get together for lunch on that day. It was sort of working but not everyone was coming in on Tuesdays as requested.

    I worked at Wolters Kluwer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    some good & forward-looking people, good vacation time, easy to travel and work from home, relatively relaxed environment, centrally located, lack of nanny computer restrictions on software

    Cons

    Like the title says, this company is not transitioning well into the digital world because they can't find and focus on a winning strategy. The vast majority of staff are mired in the print mindset, and senior management is pretty clueless as to what is going on in their own company, which raises red flags about their strategy going forward. They are very revenue driven, which, with the current leadership, means they tend to throw money in one direction and either forget what they invested in, or abandon the effort when it doesn't pay dividends immediately.

    The group of smart people dedicated to innovating are few and over-worked. There are frequent "restructurings." They are also very conscious of their #2 (and falling) position in the marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the unsexy fundamentals to build a future-oriented digital infrastructure.

    I worked at Wolters Kluwer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A good commission plan where the employees worked diligently to ensure a good customer experience.
    the platform IntelliConnect is a very robust system. The content tax research is number one or two in the industry.

    Cons

    I worked there as we experienced a new SAS installation and it was challenging at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value the intellectual capital of your employees!
