    I have been working at Wolters Kluwer full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really good health insurance plan options for individuals as well as families. It’s the main reason I’m still working there.

    Most of the people in the company are really welcoming and friendly, which doesn’t come across in the interview.

    Cons

    Maternity leave experience is extremely poor. HR and Payroll are clueless about the policy and employees get bombarded during leave with forms to fill out, incorrect pay, incorrect amount of leave time, etc.

    The policy is 6 weeks paid for a natural birth or 8 weeks paid for C-section, but your pay decreases during that time. If you choose to take 12 weeks off, you’ll only get paid for the first 6 or 8 weeks (depending on the birth manner).

    Also, Product Management doesn’t know what they are doing but they make a lot of money for being clueless. Overall, the company pays below average and barely gives pay raises once a year (usually just enough to cover the increase in insurance premiums).

    Advice to Management

    Give better raises to employees who go above and beyond. There should also be the ability to earn bonuses since salary is below average.

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

    Pros

    - Most people that work there are nice
    - Good employee participation in social events such as happy hours
    - Beautiful workspace

    Cons

    - Reputation of firing employees to restructure workforce instead of layoffs to avoid paying severance
    - Clash of culture and identity between parent company and acquired company
    - Below market salary, compensation and benefits
    - Strict, inflexible 9-5 in the office policy can make taking care of your health and family difficult
    - Complicated cumbersome systems for HR and On boarding

    Advice to Management

    For Local Management - If you are taken over my a parent company that wants to do things differently, just adopt it instead of resisting and causing overall friction between yourselves and your employees. The dual messages coming out of this is frustrating. Your employees who don't like the change will leave irregardless of what is happening.

    Also pay market rates if you want people to be happy and to stay.

    I worked at Wolters Kluwer full-time

    Pros

    There are always the few managers/co-workers that make it worth your while.

    Cons

    Management, Management, and MORE MANAGEMENT

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to people before implementing change. Also, don't turn your nose up at someone's idea just to steal it a few months down the line and take credit for it.
