    Pros

    Having been employed by this company for over 10 years they give a lot of incentive to stick around. The work life balance is very good.

    Cons

    Depending where you work in the company you may not get a chance to use the most current technologies. There is a large amount of yearly maintenance work due to tax law changes.

    Advice to Management

    Have more performance based incentives. It is easy for the top performers to get lumped in with the rest of the team.

    Pros

    4 weeks PTO plus 12 holidays right after hire. 6 weeks PTO after 10 years.

    Cons

    Horrible managers. CCH software development dept for Prosystem fx ran like a sweat shop and you're treated like you're a kid. Constantly getting emails about stupid and petty stuff. Expected to work 55-60 hours from Oct- Jan regardless of getting your own work done. Dept plays favorites. Let's some work only 40 and constantly harass those that don't. The VP's for Prosystem fx are complete idiots. They only care about the bottom line. Negotiate as high a salary you can because you'll be lucky to get a annual raise. It's not based on performance. The dept gets a pool of money each year and has to divide it among 100 people. Each lead is forced to run their team like the military. If you like your lead to hold your hand and constantly look over your shoulder then this is the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Your software sucks because your pay and raises are horrible which leads to turnover of your best employees. The only one that stays are people who don't have any other option or have been there too long to have any transferable skills for another job. They want to leave but can't. I didn't know anybody there who loved working there.

    "Good place to work while you look for your next job"

    I worked at Wolters Kluwer full-time

    Pros

    Steady hours and six weeks vacations

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to know who's doing what work, so credit goes to whoever's closest to the boss. Managers often aren't even on-site.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time hanging around the office and getting to know your employees.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work in a corporate environment. Great job if you just want to work, get a paycheck, and live life. If you are looking to advance your career this is not the job for you! Total time off first year is 21 days if you can take it.

    Cons

    Very little internal promotion or raises. You may get around 2% a year as a "reward" but that's probably going to be it unless you are the best of the best. They give you 21 days of time off but you're not allowed to take more than two days or less off for 9 months out of the year - so you can only vacation in May - Aug and no trips for the holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Hire supervisors and not just give people the title because they have been there the longest. There is a real lack of middle management in the company.

    Pros

    The workplace is excellent. The opportunities for some, are vast, there is enough space to grow into, and the company is large enough to offer a great deal of mobility.

    Cons

    For a software development company, they are kind of traditional and set in their ways. Slow to move, despite evidence to show they should.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the professionals you hired. If they suggest a course of action, you should seriously consider it. If their is something they are not taking into account, you should help them to understand it.

    Pros

    Co-Workers, pretty easy job if you're tech savvy

    Cons

    Mandatory Overtime and sometimes it feels like you can get trapped there for years.
