    Pros

    The executive leadership of Wolters Kluwer have developed a sound strategy for maintaining or attaining lead positions within the various markets in which it competes.

    Cons

    Multiple staff reductions over the past few years has left remaining staff accountable for more responsibilities than can be maintained at prior levels of quality and competency. However the company has begun to rebuild staff numbers with new hires better suited to the changing work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the current division executive leaders in place for longer than 18 months to provide much needed stability and continuity. They are doing a good job and employees want to execute for them.
