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

    Pros

    Some great people who are very good at what they do, and always very professional and friendly. Enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    Over the last 10 years, the C-Suite has been turning the company into a shell of itself. No more printing - outsourced. No more content - outsourced. So what exactly is it you do, WK?

    Advice to Management

    Good luck with that.

    Pros

    CCH is moving their tax software to the cloud which makes it much easier to support. Supporting all prior years on accountants pcs can be challenging but CCH provided everything necessary to get the job done.

    Cons

    The only con is the temporary nature of supporting software during tax season.

    I worked at Wolters Kluwer (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Benefits are pretty good
    - If you have a good manager, things can be great, if not things can be bad. People in good teams are happy. People not in good teams are not.
    - Flexible and good work/life balance.
    - Opportunities to work on multiple projects

    Cons

    - Lack of identity. Struggles between wanting to be information/content company versus technology company.
    - Leadership/Management changes too frequently. A boss per year is the norm. Makes professional advancement tricky. Makes achieving long term project success challenging.
    - Innovation is NOT rewarded and the company inspires negligible growth rather than take risks and possibly have larger growth.

    Advice to Management

    Take some bigger chances, figure out what kind of company you want to be, be less top-down.

    Pros

    Challenging work. Competent work force. Managers tell you exactly what to expect. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Burnout. They work everyone hard 9 months out of the year. Culture is very oppressive. Once you have been there for a while it is hard to leave because skills are not transferable to another company because no one else using their programming language. Most people who have been there a while are only there because they do not think they can find anything better anywhere else. Very few people actually like their job.

    The benefits are OK and the teams here are a pleasure to work with.

    Pros

    WK is an international corporation with lots of room for transition or advancement within various branches of the company if you are willing to relocate.

    Cons

    The cons - I worked for CT Corporation which is a division of Wolters Kluwer. Aside from the low base salary that I started with, what frustrated me the most was the overall unfairness within the various branches of the company, that upper management was not readily available and that nothing was done in relation to complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to make themselves more available and accessible to all employees in order to prevent abuse and incompetence from supervisors.
