    Pros

    WK is a fine place to work. It has good leadership, and they care about their employees. The work is interesting and my coworkers are great. I've genuinely enjoyed my time at WK.

    Cons

    The only downside about WK is that people who work there tend to stay, so, with few people leaving, upward mobility can sometimes be a challenge. Obviously, this varies depending on what department you work in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    PTO, work from home, friendly work environment/culture

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

    Pros

    1) Ability to work from home one day a week. 2) AMAZING bonus program. 3) Roughly 5 weeks of PTO time. 4) full benefits package. 5) Friendly office environment and approachable supervisors

    Cons

    Limited human interactions (the job consists of a lot of emailing) and it can get pretty boring sitting in front of a computer all day.

    Pros

    Culture provides a nice work / life balance. There has been a alot of recent innovation and new products.

    Cons

    Multiple business units under a large corporate umbrella, progress is being made on working together with others companies. More interaction/coordination with these other companies/branches will bring better customer sharing and growth of Wolters Kluwer within the account.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    --Good benefits
    --They allow employees in the editorial department to telecommute

    Cons

    Although the company has "town hall meetings", and other in-person presentations by top executives, the PowerPoint presentations are poor. Each slide is overloaded with text. The Washington D.C. office has been downsized, which is strange since the company introduced its Daily Reporting Suite. No White House reporters? No congressional reporters?

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider the way Executive presentations are done. Each department has different schedules. Live morning meetings may be good for non-editorial departments who don't have daily deadlines, But other departments such as Editorial & Content Acquisition can't take the time off. Consider pre-recorded on demand presentations.
    Quit trying to do the Daily Reporting Suite on the cheap. Staff the Washington D.C. office with reporters covering the White House, Congress, and other Executive Agencies. Instead of waiting for Law360 to come up with stories, do some original reporting.
