    I have been working at Cerner full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people I work with are very knowledgeable and have assisted my growth in the company quickly. I actually love my job here. The on-site Cafe is amazing, they have real chefs creating delicious menus to order from. The benefits so far have been amazing. The on-site gyms have me working out regularly. The staff keep the entire place clean and they are friendly. There is always internal-training going on that you can sign up for to expand your knowledge. My experience with managers have been great. If you have something going on at home like a appliance installation you can work home from the day. It feels like a very productive and relaxed environment. If you come in early you can leave early. I work anywhere from 8-10 hours a day but it doesn't feel like a long day. If your working a 10 or 10+ hour day you usually have to get something done and are excited to do it.

    I have only been here for about 4 months and I already feel like a valued member of the team.

    Cons

    The trainer I had left the company shortly after I started working for a better opportunity, so my training was minimal. This did not become an issues as there were other members on my team that I could get information from.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up what your currently doing

    Pros

    Company is growing fast and hiring alot of new people.
    Culture is very friendly and relaxed.
    They are very helpful and want you to learn alot and have fun doing it

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of downside. Rellocation needed, by KCMO is a great place with plenty to do.
    They push you to work hard and and find work you are interested in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job with your recruiting process, definitely made me want to come work for Cerner and live in KCMO

    I have been working at Cerner full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Flexibility
    * Convenience of gym, pharmacy, clinic, work from home
    * Network with other similar associates
    * For the most part you are appreciated and recognized

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to do, but not a lot of resources to do it. This often leaves people feeling over worked, stressed, and easily burnt out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have had a decent experience with management. I think they feel our pain when we are overworked. They do the best they can by recognizing us, but there is only so much we can do.

    Great company and good benefits!

    Former Employee - Applications Analyst in Kansas City, MO

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

    Pros

    My co-workers were awesome here. The associate stock purchase plan is good, and the benefit premiums never increased. They engage you and you learn a lot on the job. I recommend them!

    Cons

    The hours are longer than 40 a week sometimes. The starting salary was nice, but the salary increases after a yearly review were not great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the employees based on performance to add incentive.
