Pros

Wolters Kluwer was a very positive experience because everyone worked well together in parts of a team; bi-weekly meetings with upper management

Cons

Contractor-based development teams left a very low morale amongst core group of full time developers; some contract employees lasted only a week or two

Advice to Management

Employee retention would be greater if we encouraged increased morale with the team; more company town hall meetings would have given greater visibility

    Pros

    Decent health benefits
    401K
    Good accrual of PTO and vacation time, but only after you've been there five years or more

    Cons

    There have been cutbacks requiring most people to do the work of two to three. Management often not as experienced as those they manage and not willing to listen to people in the field. Constant demands to do projects without providing support needed to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    It's kind of pointless to give advice because as a master plan is filtered down from below and you are just expected to accomplish it. There really is no room for discussion. I was on one advisory panel that was geared towards bringing issues from workers to upper management, which was disbanded after six months.

    Pros

    - The small size of branch office made it easy to work and connect with people
     - The local management great with employees and was able to cut the red tape
     - Enjoyed the health benefits of a large corporation. Larger coporations tend to have better health and travel benefits that smaller or start up companies on a budget

    Cons

    - Affter acquisition main headquarters was distant from child company.
     - Took a long time to get approvals because of long processes
     - Employees with most experience and talents were not recognized
     - No room for growth

    Advice to Management

    When you make a company acquisition, make sure you find out who has experience, longevity and knowledge in the company and make use that talent. It seems that the company was not aware of the most valuable employees and allowed them to leave without finding a way to keep them. It is hard to find good experienced people so it is in the companies best interest to hold on to talent.
