    Pros

    Great company to work for with good benefits. Especially great place to work for someone beginning in the IT field.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be tough some times, especially depending on your role.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring folks. There's plenty of work to go around, and your better off getting enough employees to handle the upcoming workload than waiting on current employees to get swamped before getting more help.

    Pros

    High level of competency across the board. Cerner has a culture of integrity, innovation, and excellence, because the vast majority of people here take pride in doing their job well. It's in the midwest, so people are down to earth, and friendly. Cerner solves problems that can help healthcare providers do their jobs more effectively - the work here feels important.

    Cons

    Recent growth at Cerner means office space is getting tighter. A new campus is under construction, but for now, it's pretty cozy!

    Pros

    -Excellent company to work for.
    -Lots of challenging opportunities available.

    Cons

    - Medical industry is a little slow to adopt newer technolgies, so things move at a slower pace than many of the modern DotCom companies. But they still are ahead of the curve compared to others in their field.

    Pros

    Plenty of teams working in almost all the technologies in market. So, you can learn so much. Ideal for a fresher.
    No chance for company not performing well overall. Nothing stopping its growth in the future too because of the everlasting health care industry. A string job-safety feeling.

    Cons

    Average to below average compensation. Leave policy and benefits not up to market standards especially at Software Engineer beginners level.

    Pros

    Good company with lots of benefits, concerned about employees health and work environment is pretty good.

    Cons

    Work load is hectic, may have to work extra few hours each day, and managers expect weekend work as well !!

    Advice to Management

    Weekend working must be removed, it doesn't allow employees to have time to relax. May be this is the only concern I had.
