Employee Comments

    Current Systems Engineer in Kansas City, Kansas

    401K match is nice, but the health insurance isn't so great. It's fine if you don't have major issues and can be dealt with at the Clinics onsite, but if you have to go to a specialist the deductibles can be brutal

    I think that the benefits are a bit costly, for myself and my family it would cost nearly $200 every payday.

    Current Employee in Kansas City, Missouri

    Stock purchase options, great health and wellness benefits including gym, 401 K. Worst is high deductible insurance plan.

  • Oct 26, 2014
    Former Employee in Kansas City, Missouri

    Long term service awards every 6 years (starting on your 7th year of f/t employment)

  • Nov 3, 2014
    Former Sr. Applications Consultant in Kansas City, Missouri

    High deductibles and the plan is scrutinized and rarely accepted by facilities.

  • Oct 10, 2014
    Former Program Coordinator in Kansas City, Missouri

    Only 2 weeks vacation starting out. Health and vision insurance was great. Dental coverage was disappointing. Flexible work-from-home depending on which team you are on.

    Current Software Engineer in Kansas City, Missouri

    Very less salary package and relocation bonus

    Current Employee in Kansas City, Missouri

    the health care on site is pretty amazing!

    Current Knowledge Architect in Kansas City, Missouri

    Best -- free gym and clinic on site. Chiropractor on site - normal fees. CHEAP pharmacy on site.

    1. better acceptance for engineers to work from home on semi-regular basis rather than due to infrequent bad weather
    2. give performance bonus via stock options to non executive associates

    Stretch request
    1. Offer free lunch or lunch at a significantly reduced cost.

    Note: America Food and Vending provides food onsite. If you have the time, they have excellent meals that are priced fair. However, the grab and go type items are of questionable quality and overpriced. For example, a stand-alone sandwich and soda costs $7-8. It should be $4.00 for both. Spending an hour off-campus is not an option and I prefer not to bring lunch from home.

    Cerner has no virtually benefits to assist Transgender individuals. The 401k is fantastic though.
