    Advice to Management

    You each care deeply about your teams, your people, if we were to be strict and accountable to care about one another at the middle and upper management level as much as we care about our teams/people - by having real conversations with those that don't and formally/informally acknowledging those who do WK will continue grow, not just grow but thrive. Love this company, its people and all it stands for and offers the Doctors, Nurses, and academic or research Medical professionals of the world.

    Pros

    Great working environment. Generous paid time off. I loved all the people I worked with.

    Cons

    Like any larger company, you do have a bit of bureaucracy to deal with. Sometimes separate departments in the same division don't know what each are doing. This can get a bit frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They often have some of the best ideas to innovate the organization.

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Decent benefits but pay is way below market. Can coast for a while.

    Cons

    This place is an absolute disaster. Senior management is completely clueless to the trends in the industry and how to lead the transformation to digital. They will become a has been if they don't change. Not a good place for your career long term. It takes a very long time to get anything done, a very slow moving place with lots of cooks in the kitchen. You will work with lots of C grade people. Senior management not open to ideas that differ from theirs. Unreasonable goals and targets without giving people the right tools/plans to help them achieve. They do not respect people and treat them quite badly. Too much outsourcing.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to genuinely care for people and respect them. Learn to motivate and inspire your people. Promote the right folks for the right job. Learn how to do digital. Shape up your products and provide a better product to your paying customers.

    Pros

    Good laid back environment where employees opinions are solicited and ideas implemented. PTO is generous and benefits are good (health insurance is $$$)

    Cons

    Can be hard to move up in the company if you don’t have inside friends/ contacts. Pay for some roles seems to be below average.

    Pros

    Not much to say here

    Cons

    Sales comp plans difficult to decipher, management that does not have the proper experience, constant fire drills responding to basic client/prospect requests, lack of focus, go to market strategy constantly changing, lack of proper competitive intelligence, there is more but I will stop here.

    Advice to Management

    Need more targeted focus and investment in areas that you want to go after. Stop trying to be jack of all trades and master of none.

    Pros

    Start with 4 weeks PTO
    Great coworkers

    Cons

    Upper management do not care for their employees. You are only a number. You are given goals that are impossible to achieve. If you don’t make your numbers, you get written up and potentially get fired. Employee morale is non existent. Managers are given no budget to help make employees happy. They say that they invest in employees to advance but don’t provide opportunities to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people better. This place is one of the most toxic places to work. You’re losing good people due to not treating people with respect.
