    I have been working at Wolters Kluwer full-time

    Pros

    Nice that women can make it to leadership and grow careers, and there is an openness to learn, understand, improve. Company encourages trying new things and exploring openings across other divisions. Supportive leaders.

    Cons

    Too much work, not enough time, but that's everywhere. Nice that people work from home once in awhile.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to learn divisions/businesses to understand impact of required changes cascaded down. Teams are not coordinating efforts to see if strategies compete and resources/teams are ready to implement

    I have been working at Wolters Kluwer full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many overtime opportunities, excellent health insurance ( hsa contributions from WK); 401k, great managers. They are always willing to work to help in a messy situation.

    Cons

    Too much cross training...not enough specializing. Lots of information to retain at one time can lead to mistakes too easily.

    Advice to Management

    Stop stretching employees thin with too much brief training.

    I worked at Wolters Kluwer full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fast-paced, interesting and rewarding; space to be creative and take risks. Enjoyable work environment, surrounded by other very interesting staff looking to create trend setting products.

    Cons

    Changing industry, especially when I worked there. Managers could not agree on the direction of the company. The pressure for profit went a bit beyond what the market warranted.

    Advice to Management

    I believe management has figured out the right direction for the company in the years since I've left. While my product area is no longer part of the catalog, it found a core audience.
