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

    Pros

    I worked for a subsidiary of Wolters Kluwer with a lot of work and the management understood the pressure of performing. Great benefits and motivating supervisors.

    Cons

    There was a heavy turnover of employees because there was daily deadlines with a lot of work to do everyday. The pay was also lower than what one would expect for a 50 plus hour work week.

    Advice to Management

    Please add performance incentives

    Management is not easy to communicate with. The leaders are always changing as well as the rules. You are never sure if your job will be there tomorrow.

    Advice to Management

    Have management more accessible and more responsive.

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

    Pros

    The perfect mix of strong, smart, and strategic leadership in an organization with a caring, supportive and collegial culture.

    Cons

    With a 150 year history, and (too) many long tenured employees (over 20 years of service) WK won't ever be mistaken for Google or Salesforce. Don't come here for a "cool" workspace or cutting edge technology.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to find ways for WK to be more nimble and move faster. Agile development doesn't work with a Waterfall approach to Finance, Marketing, and HR.

    Pros

    PTO time... yeah that's about it. I wish I could come up with more but I really can't think of any others.

    Cons

    Lack in training on things that really matter. Constant change in goals and what we are supposed to achieve. Unfair work balance.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Keep them in the loop as to what is going on.

    Pros

    Decent benefits; work environment is pretty laid back; everyone is always willing to help. Located directly across Chelsea Market so easy access to great food

    Pay employees what they are truly worth
