    I have been working at Wolters Kluwer full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I still remember my first week of employment because of how welcoming it was. I was greeted by several employees across the company, welcoming me and I immediately knew this would be a fantastic group to work with; I was right! The team never hesitates to help out whenever someone has a question and everyone is extremely friendly. We have a company culture that is second to none. A few of the perks that are offered at Enablon include regular food catering, French classes which are offered weekly, our kitchens are always fully stocked with food and beverages, the company also has an outside financial adviser that comes to the office every month to meet with employees, and the masseuse that is in the office weekly is always something to look forward to! I am also very impressed at how approachable upper management is.

    Cons

    I don't get to travel to our offices in Paris and Canada as much as I would like to!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    dependent on your division you work with great people and leading edge products. i left and came back after being at other companies that made me appreciate WK. small companies are part of a large big company so you get the best of both worlds - local decisions and support and funding from HQ> the Senior team (Nancy) believes in letting the divisions do the work and does not have excessive management oversight. great PTO, and lots of opportunity to move around. i have worked for 3 of the 4 divisions. Nancy is a strong focused leader with great ideas and a realistic approach to problem solving. she always remembers your name and there are 20,000 of us.

    Cons

    somewhat bureaucratic with too many layers to get simple things done. some divisions more innovative than others. the Tax division is a standout of innovation. they have yet to harness the real power of the WK brand across the divisions

    Advice to Management

    pull together more cross function and cross division initiatives. from old world publisher to innovative software company is a proud journey. promote it more internally and externally.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance when not in tax season. Benefits are fantastic. Direct management is good.

    Cons

    Tight budgets from upper management limit employees potential.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the numerical performance reviews. Focus on individual goal-based reviews instead of limiting management to only so many 4's, so many 3's, etc.
