    I have been working at Cerner full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty legit. Healthcare coverage, stock purchase plan, 401K match and profit sharing are all great.

    Casual, laid-back environment

    Lots of activities for associates to meet, mingle, make friends

    If you don't travel, work life balance is great.

    Cons

    After changing job titles, it is difficult to receive compensation comparable with other associates in a role.

    On-campus cafeteria is expensive.

    Redundant processes and personnel need to be addressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to eliminate redundant processes and provide better training for specific tools.

    I have been working at Cerner

    Pros

    The company provides great benefits and many perks (many as support analyst do not get to enjoy). Most associates are friendly. Great place to make new friends.

    Cons

    Managers do not care about you at all. Most support analysts are there hoping to move to a different position after 18 months. Many of them leave before then. Most support analyst positions are call centers. They only give it an fancy name. The opportunity to grow is minimal before the 18 month, no matter how hard someone works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about everyone's career.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
