Current Employee - Senior Customer Service Representative says"Understaffed; micromanaged; upper management is not involved with day to day work load;"
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Too many employees in leadership positions who have been there too long (15+ years) who subscribes to doing things the way they’ve always been done. The culture is extremely hierarchical and lots of classic corporate bureaucracy. Very little emphasis on diversity and inclusion initiatives and you can feel the effects of that."

They had so much dirt on one another."

Customer Service Representative 2 (Former Employee) says"Working for this company was such a waste of my experience and my time. They state they are a family oriented company however if you have kids or a family situation they do not work with you on your schedule or time off. You also feel like a bad employee if you have to take off due to a child or family member being ill. The company shows favoritism towards employees that have been there the longest. They do not pay based on your knowledge with the company they base it on how well the higher managers like you. There is no where to advance to in the company, they just want someone that is going to sit in the seat and do their job and have no aspirations to advance."
Scheduled CPA agents (Former Employee) says"This was a temporary position. I was informed that the manager was crazy. She seemed nice at first. She would hover over your shoulder and nitpick if you made a mistake asking you why you made the mistake. It was like working with doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. By the time I tried to complain to my case manager who left the company at my staffing agency I was unable to transfer out. They told me to wait it out and hang in there. Not long after my assignment was complete.nice workersmanager was a crazy maker"

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) says"First off Wolters Kluwer is a good company that has good growth potential and most people are great to work with - HOWEVER as you avoid the customer service department in the Hagerstown office. When I first started, I immediately was taken in by one of the managers that was very welcoming and wanted to see me succeed. Just a few months before I started I was told that the company just had relocated to the Citi building. However, I started to notice a change once I was pulled from the online support team and put into customer service. Many of the women in the customer service department were bullies. They could not separate work life from personal life. My supervisor had a thing for favoritism on our team. She would let her favorites leave early and others she would make stay after their time to leave to clean up phone calls. I noticed how the rules started to become extremely strict to the point where we could no longer take a few moments to write notes for a customer. Ridiculous policies were put into place that made us stay hours after our scheduled time to leave and take over our personal time. We were to get them done in a minute and if we decided to take anymore time, they would come over and scold us for it. It also came down on limited time to use the restroom which is extremely unprofessional and illegal for a workplace.Benefits, growthFavoritism, rules, people"
Senior Strategic Account Manager (Current Employee) says"Very hierarchal, and the leadership is very out of touch with the customers and often push everything down. No teams are held accountable for client satisfaction except for sales.Work RemoteNo opportunity for growth"

Customer Accounts Officer (Former Employee) says"Worked at this company for 6 years and its all about who you know and not what you know. In my experience, i was very well liked and known throughout the company's employees including Asia Pacific region. Sill fresh ideas aren't locked in to by middle management.Average co worker's are good when you get to know them.Management seem to have limited people skills."

After this was escalated to the higher ups, nothing changes. There was a mass exodus on the HR team.wonderful colleaguesnot treated well by leadership"
Order Entry Specialist (Former Employee) says"The workplace culture is based on favoritism. Although there were,and still are, a lot of great people working there the overall atmosphere of the lowest on the totem being accountable for all the mistakes, management missteps, and executive lack of knowledge is too stressful for the low pay. Managers do not know how to build teams and expectations for deliverables are not placed on managers or supervisors, but on the hourly workers. Most of the executives treat management and workers as sub human.Immediate insurance coverage.Company culture"
Legal Analyst (Former Employee) says"I thought I was getting in with a good company just turned out that they were unprofessional. This is all I have to say about this and you forcing a minimum is ridiculous. So now I am just filling this with a bunch of nothing because I have nothing else to say."
HR Manager, Facility & Admin Manager (Former Employee) says"This company is run by friends or relatives and a tight knit group. No advancement. Toxic culture, everyone throws each under under the bus, no recognition, no trust - need to get rid of the senior management staff for there to be true change at this location.Ptoculture, advancement, poor management, poor communication, lack of structure, processes, only friends get promoted and run the organization, very corrupt at the top"
Engagement Manager (Former Employee) says"Did not enjoy my time here because of lack of direction from management. They have meetings constantly to find out the status of clients but there is no follow thru."
Division Sales Manager (Former Employee) says"Management is bad, plain and simple. Bullies who use words likes losers when they talk about FSR's who are not doing well. Public Sector works - you are welcome - signed the "Monster" 65% while having the lowest quota in years - embarrassing.Not much to listPay, Management, Products"
Editor (Former Employee) says"Cons: Great if you are a robot. Management is rigid, uncaring and petty. Don’t believe the dog-and-pony show they put on during interviews. Pros: It feels so good to leave!"
Mr T. says"I\'ve been working as a software engineer for over 20 years - this is absolutely the worse company I\'ve worked for. If you are reading this, do yourself a favor - run away, run as fast as you can. A regular day of work in WK: if you are not stuck in some absolutely useless meeting, then you are stuck working on some legacy code written by somebody who could not care less about what\'s he supposed to do. There are no words to describe how bad this company is, so just go away and never look back."
