Do not recommend
Business Associate - Law Department (Former Employee) –  Denver, COJanuary 12, 2016
Office is run unprofessionally. Two girls in office. 5 workers in a year let go was a red flag I should of paid attention to. Management does not seem to care how it is run out of California. Too much micro-managing that is actually not good for learning.Way over the top!!! No ethics or respect for co-workers. I would not recommend a position with this office as you are pretty emotionally beaten up M-F Not a 40 hour work week but 35. Pay is good. The most enjoyable part of the job was 5:00 pm when I headed out the door for the end of the day.
Pros
Productive Environment

Rude, unprofessional, no management

Work/Life imbalance
Product Manager (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNNovember 4, 2015
As a compliance vendor to large financial institutions, the pace of change within Wolters Kluwer Financial Services is largely driven by state and federal regulatory changes. Don't be surprised by the friction caused between financial institutions slow to adopt technology changes and conflicting regulatory bodies slowing processes.
Pros
Salary is average, but total benefit package is above average.
Cons
Work-Life imbalance is weighted to "more work"

Highly respected company; regulatory compliance experts.
Software sales (Current Employee) –  Saint Cloud, MNSeptember 30, 2015
Industry leader in compliance solutions for the financial industry. Wide range of products for banks, credit unions and mortgage companies. My position was providing sales presentations for the software solutions that enable the client to leverage technology that enhances workflow efficiencies. The hardest part of the job was maintaining subject matter expertise on a wide range of products. I most enjoyed analyzing the customers needs and providing a solution set specific to their requirements.
Pros
Virtual office
Cons
Extensive travel

Great work environment. A lot of great people to work with.
Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNSeptember 8, 2015
Coming in as a contractor the work environment is pleasant. People are nice to work with and helpful when they can be. Many have been with the company for over 10 years. Managers don't overwork you terribly and are reasonably flexible about work-life balance concerns. The work environment, business processes and resources at a high level are well-structured and (in some cases) reasonably documented. Within that overall structure, people are granted a lot of respect and work with autonomy.
Pros
Good benefits, possibility of a flexible schedule, good management
Cons
There is not much guidance or onboarding for new hires.

Stressful and taxing atmosphere with little room for growth
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  United StatesAugust 7, 2015
All departments are operating very lean, to the point where the business falls behind its competition and the employees are worked to well above their maximum capacity for indefinite periods of time. It is very difficult to hire additional staff due to constant budget constraints that happen year after year, even if your business has high EBITA figures and continually performs well. If your particular Wolters Kluwer business is doing well, the corporate offices will require additional top line and bottom line results throughout the year, so there is no incentive to exceed plan. Their bonus offerings are only acceptable if you are a member of the c-suite. The hardest part of the job is not being recognized for your accomplishments, either through a title, bonus, or salary increase.
Pros
Multiple offices across the world with some opportunity to move around.
Cons
Long hours, understaffed, little respect from managers and leaders.

Account Manager- Sales
Inside Sales (Former Employee) –  Baltimore Camden YardsJune 28, 2015
A great company to work for, when I started I was temp to hire, was brought in to increase revenue for the online division. , The company was Williams And Wilkins Publishing, 3 months later the company was purchased by Wolters Kluwer, .
The responsibilities stayed the same but feel the employees began to feel lost not knowing what will happen with the jobs they had,,
Pros
hours are good, continued education on products you are selling to present and future customers, good pay and benefits, free parking, good happy hours after work as well, weekly meetings to discuss good and bad things that come up in your daily work, ways to make them better
Cons
Poor Management leadership-

The best working enviroment that I've ever for at.
Account Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Torrance, CAJune 6, 2015
1. Calling customers to get them to renew their software subscription and to address any objections including price and technical difficulties.

2. I've learned to not only lead my when it's called for but to also follow when it's best for business.

3. My immediate management team supports my division and does everything within their power to put me in a position to succeed.


4. I have amazing co-workers. Everyone is invested in being a team player.

5. My problem is not with the customers. I think it's more challenging overcoming unexpected issues that need to be address immediately.

6. Talking to customers. At the end of the day customers are just people who want to be treated with class and to deal with a person and company and they feel is interested in meeting their needs.
Pros
Management, co-workers and fullfilling job
Cons
Expensive software which makes it challenging to justify the cost

Minneapolis/Health Division- Disaster
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNJune 5, 2015
This portion of the company has very little respect for their employees and upper management has little to no experience in their field. Most of the VPs are friends or colleagues of the old owners of the acquired companies or the confidants of the VP of clinical solutions, Arvind. There is no room for advancement, management feels as if they know everything and many of the companies are hemorrhaging money, the only group that is saving them is UpToDate because it is a historic and well known company with well known and used products in the medical field. They bring in new talent, but if new talent questions the ethics, management or the way things are done the individuals are boxed out until they either leave or the company makes up some excuse to fire them. I saw many people get fired not because they didn't do their job well, but because they had two sick days in a row or they questioned policies and procedures or stood up and challenged something that was not right or because the employee needed to be fired to make space for a buddy or friend with no experience who needed a job. In addition, they have multiple people on staff in certain departments that do not work and live on the paychecks, only coasting by because they are a friend or a family member of upper management. A large percentage of the staff is either related or knew each other outside of the office before they started there, the company even received a warning from internal HR to hide this or hire more unknowns because it was starting to look suspicious from an EEOC perspective. The only positive for  more... my position was that it was work from home flexible, otherwise there were no other positives. The benefits were good until they decided to get rid of the MN health plan through Medica and change us all to the BCBS plan that is used by the rest of the firm, which is two to three times more expensive than what we were receiving. Either way, I am surprised that this company still runs without regulatory intervention or multiple employment suits with the way they run their business and hire/fire people.

NOTE: This is only for the health, specifically clinical solutions division in Minneapolis. I also worked with corporate on items as well as other business units and found overall that WK was a great company, this portion of the company is the main bad apple of the bunch.

Flexibility, work from home (only for certain people though)
