    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.
