    Pros

    Strong Culture and good overall company who believes in its people as the base of what makes it great.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    Great people, by and large. Smart, kind, non-jerk people all around. There are a few obligatory curmudgeons, sure, but those are the exceptions and are rare.

    Solid work/life balance and compensation.

    Leadership are smart people, I feel like they're doing an intelligent and responsible job.

    Cons

    There are a few departments/teams where bad practices and attitudes are allowed to exist to the detriment of related teams' success. If your work depends on one of those groups, you're out of luck. Even when the problem is well-known, it seems to take a long time (years+) to spot/fix dysfunction.

    Some of the CRM stuff is really clunky. Divisional teams work to improve their particular touchpoints to SalesForce and other systems - but there's no overarching commitment to streamlining. E.g., there are 7 billing systems just in the group where I work. None are tied to SF.

    Advice to Management

    By and large, just keep it up. One thing I've seen is that within my group, the people who've been promoted have been the right people to promote. Not just on results, but people who've been chosen have had the right mix of empathy, leadership, and accountability. The whole structure is made of respectable people.

    Pros

    Great company with great people to work with and excellent benefits. Even though my job only lasted 5 months I had a positive experience and learned a lot. My Manager was excellent as was hus Manager. If an opportunity of working there comes up again, I would apply.

    Cons

    Not really much, just a more attainable business plan and goals within all units and locations.

    Pros

    Good, smart people who are passionate about the products

    Cons

    Business leadership and culture are constantly changing. Divisional or business-led reorgs are common place. Business team members' roles/responsibilities/reporting structures/priorities are ever-evolving. Management communication can be lacking in select businesses.
