    Pros

    Very good for freshers, decent initial salary, many technologies to choose from

    Cons

    very low annual increments, long work hours at times

    Advice to Management

    Annual Pay raise needs to be increased far more. Most people are leaving within 1-2 years due to this reason.

    Pros

    Great starting salary and benefits for those new to the work force. Gets you started into your position right away and keeps you on your toes

    Because the company is so big and there are many, many positions, it is very easy for people to get to positions they may not be qualified for based off experience.

    Pros

    The skills developed are not always easily transferable outside of the company. A lot of the work is specific to Cerner solutions, and will not apply elsewhere.
