    I don't see any cons with this company thus far.

    I worked at Cerner full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You're on your own schedule (assuming you don't schedule any meetings). Great experience with project management: financial aspect (great learning experience), event planning, administrative tasks, a lot of networking within the company and also with external clients. The team is great! Management encouraged us to develop which ever skills we wanted to help us grow in our career. If ever I needed help, all I had to do was ask. The chance to travel: I got to go abroad and to many places with in the US! Great company!! Work hard and you will be recognized. Easy to get promoted. Only reason I left was because my boyfriend was relocated and I couldn't work remotely.

    Cons

    It got a bit administrative at times: granting access, taking notes during meetings, etc. but it was good to get the experience. Some projects are very large and can be very demanding. Nothing a good attitude and communication can't fix.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!!

    Pros

    If you can handle the workload, you have an opportunity to advance. Excellent pay.

    Cons

    Cerner doesn't necessarily care to provide immediate support when needed. Managers and HR aren't always completely honest regarding PIP outcomes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees a chance to change roles within the company before terminating employment. Cerner is renowned for allowing this type of movement within the company but I was not given the opportunity.

    Pros

    Great place to get a start in business, excellent learning opportunities with the ability to learn and put ideas into action. Flexibility with most of management on working hours and location depending on situation. competitive compensation (but not the best).

    Cons

    Cerner is a VERY busy company and "expects" employees to work their 48 plus hours per week. Travel policies are interesting at times, and really have no regards for the person. Health Insurance is questionable in value, and has some interesting rules as it is very much focused on the "healthy person". Promotion is very incestuous within individual organizations, hard to move up into leadership or management.
