    Great place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros- Flexible Schedules -- they let you work from home whenever you need to.
    - Rapid growth opportunities -- growing rapidly, so it is possible to become a manager quickly.

    ConsSometimes you have to work un-regular hours, but there's nothing extraordinary about these hours.

    Summer Internship at Cerner

    Velocity Software Engineer Intern (Former Employee)
    Kansas City, MO

    Pros-I learned a lot about the different tools and processes of Agile development by working in a software development team
    -People were friendly and helpful
    -Free stuff. I got a T-shirt, a laptop bag, a hoodie, a notepad + pen, and unlimited coffee while at work
    -Employee discounts on certain items

    ConsI have no big cons, only a few minor things:
    -Sometimes parking was in short supply
    -The commute from the UMKC dorms where the interns were staying to the Cerner Innovation Campus was kind of long

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Invaluable experience and exposure

    Velocity Business Consultant Intern (Former Employee)
    Kansas City, MO

    ProsThe corporate culture is unique and relaxed, while still maintaining a professional and innovative attitude. Jeans are appropriate attire at all Kansas City locations, and working from home is a reasonable and common occurrence.

    ConsI have heard from co-workers that they experienced an overwhelming amount of work assigned to them for an entry-level role, but I personally have never felt overwhelmed by the tasks assigned. My managers always went out of their way to ensure I was on track and were always willing to re-adjust my schedule if need be.

    Healthcare innovation and disruption

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat people, aggressively innovative, great vision and motivated culture, comprehensive approach to building the patient centric electronic health record, poised for growth - constantly focuses on "what's next".

    ConsA bit too focused on cost control and profit margins instead of using it's tremendous cash reserves to expand its reach and influence into new areas. Does not seem to value older associates with experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't give up on the legacy applications. There is a lot of innovation left in the electronic record.

    Truly innovative

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Kansas City, MO

    Pros1) Cerner is definitely dedicated to the improvement of health care systems, which makes any job related to IP dev rewarding.
    2) Training is heavily invested in. New associates aren't expected to know every single detail when brought on.
    3) Cerner has an approach of hiring as much talent as they can, as opposed to squeezing every last bit out of existing employees. While projects can become a bit overwhelming, new hires and consultants are being brought on every week to help.
    4) They really do invest a ton of time in testing code, which is nice because if you make a mistake, it will almost always get caught before going to production.

    Cons1) Parking for new hires is pretty bad.
    2) Management can be unorganized, with sudden changes happening to projects quite frequently.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on rewarding employees who deliver as opposed to those who have been with the company for years.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
