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

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    The company is experience a 'revolving door' syndrome, in which people are constantly being fired. There is no loyalty or understanding and appreciation for hard work. Stay clear if you are looking for a long term career as I have seen the entire sales team replaced within my tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Please replace management

    Pros

    Wolters Kluwer is a team of dedicated experts that are passionate about bringing insight and innovation to their customers. With a long history in Canada, the company has a strong reputation in the market and customers like their products and, most importantly, the people at Wolters Kluwer. The new management team is talented and are working very hard to orchestrate a growth business.

    Cons

    Wolters Kluwer Canada is coming out of a couple difficult years and is in the process of restoring its culture and capital. This makes for an environment with a high level of change.

    Advice to Management

    Within Canada, maintain your momentum of growth with continued investment in software, research and people. You will need all three to succeed.

    Globally, invest more deeply in product innovation and digital transformation; better align employee incentives across all layers of the organization.
