    Pros

    I like the work environment. It's pretty laid back.

    Cons

    Some of the manager doesn't know what they are doing. Sometimes, you approached your team leader for an answer, but doesn't seems like they know the answer and tell you to go ask someone else. It seems like if you know someone in a higher position, then you are like going to be able to move up to a higher position even though you don't seem to have the experience.

    Pros

    Solid experience and steady job.

    Cons

    Your entire work experience will depend on the team you are placed on. The people i went through the jumpstart program all shared the same job title as myself but our roles were drastically different.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and if you want grade A workers pay a grade A salary.

    I have been working at Cerner full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The salaries are competitive with other businesses. The company provides a lot of training for the job they don't just through you in the mix. The promise of upward mobility, when they decide to release you which could be as long as two years. A decent place to be if you are fresh out of college and need to pay bills.

    Cons

    First off there is no analysis in this role. It is just IT support for frustrated hospital employees. The hours can be very long depending on what shift you get. We're talking 12 hours. No one is actually enjoying this job everyone is just here until they can apply for a different role. The only things you will get for your resume is a Cerner sticker and a wide general knowledge of computer software. The job is confusing and frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have a lot of advice for the management it's a call center type of environment they do their best to make it as pleasant as it can be.

    I worked at Cerner full-time

    Pros

    This was a great job if you love being on the road, and also love MIS. It is a technical role (though it involves no coding), so you have to love the computer techy side of things in addition to being a good consultant.

    Cons

    Career growth isn't based on performance, only business needs. You can be performing extremely well, but it is tough to get promoted or to move into a role that you want, simply because management doesn't see the "business need" for it. They also made me promises they couldn't keep, which gave me a bitter outlook on the company and didn't inspire me to work any harder. And on the other side of that, they're terrible at managing burnout.

    Advice to Management

    You've got to promote your best people, even if it means losing a talented consultant in the role they're currently filling. Otherwise, you'll end up with frustrated, burnt out associates.

    Pros

    It's a good first job in the Heath-care IT Industry. Do your time and soak up as much knowledge as you can and you'll be set.

    Cons

    Lots of "overtime". Always gotta make sure you're getting that "un-spoken" 20% OT.

    Pros

    Fellow employees and environment are extremely nice. There's a gym, pool, nice cafeteria all onsite at the WHQ.

    Cons

    Salary isn't up to market rate at all. They also don't take into account what experience you had prior to joining the company.

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

    Pros

    Competive salary and Stock options. Hiring process was ok. Provide 7 weeks of class that is a tip of what you need to know to function confidently.

    Cons

    Lack of training- was told there would be a 4 month mentoring and hands on -- mentoring was remote and I was placed on assignment immediately Hear the motto " fake it 'til you make it" a lot - those in the field say it takes at least 2-3 years to " get comfortable" Travel is not flexible

    Advice to Management

    Give the mentoring - it matters. Also come up with a more effective way to communicate to remote employees besides 2-3 hour phone call meetings on Fridays
