    Pros

    Cerner is a fun and challenging company to work for that will set you up for success from the start. There are tons of fun events you can go to such as DevCon, Hackathon, and various tech meetups. All associates from recruiters to teammates treat you with respect and like you're a valuable member of the team. There is also an immense amount of pride and culture involved with working at such a successful, growing company.

    Cons

    Interns are usually required to work 40 hours a week, so if you want to do more or less there's not a whole lot of flexibility.

    Pros

    Great technology, excellent product, very smart and talented people to support you and work with. Smart and hard-working leadership. Fast paced, high-visibility environments -- installing, managing and optimizing mission-critical IT systems for Healthcare organizations. Great career opportunities in US and international

    Cons

    High-pressure environments can be stressful and require long hours, lots of travel required for client consulting roles. Most roles are based in Kansas City - so career advancement could require you to relocate to KC, CEO Neal Patterson is brash and controlling and is known to belittle employees in public forums

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on building and enhancing the technology, keep pace with modern IT systems, offer alternatives to Oracle, improve client support services and resolutions, always show respect for your hard-working employees in public settings (eh'em... Neal Patterson)

    Pros

    Everyone is very welcoming and willing to help when you are a new employee. I had a ton of people always asking me if I needed any assistance with anything, as well as showing me how to do things that might be difficult to figure out. Cerner has been a great place to work so far. The pay is competitive for the area I am in, and I'm satisfied with it. It was more than I expected. Benefits are pretty good too!

    Cons

    I know this may be hard to believe but I honestly can't think of any. Everyone has been great to me and the work we get to do is pretty cool

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I love that Cerner is growing as fast as it is. I hope it keeps up and I can be here for years to come.
