    Pros

    has a lot of benefits, and is going places.

    Cons

    They really want to make sure you work hard. If you aren't a hard worker... and determined to get far. Then I wouldn't suggest this.

    Pros

    a lot of good travel opportunities that allow you to travel the country to help implement the Cerner software

    Cons

    they hire a lot of non-IT, non-computer majors (like myself) and all that I have talked to agree that they just don't train you how to really use the Cerner software well enough, both from a front end and back end perspective. In 2015, they cut per diem by 15-20% and cut quarterly Billable Incentive bonuses. With travel and per diem being one of my favorite parts of the job, the cuts they made were detrimental to my overall happiness

    Pros

    Company gives chance to every individual to use their talent to give better solutions.
    There are many things about this company similar to big giants in the software industry.
    No trouble of traffic or water in the city.
    Conferences, clubs and meetups happen on a monthly bases.
    Helpful individuals.

    Cons

    The place its located in. Kansas city as such is pretty good place. But not as lively as citys in California or any major city. If you are a person who loves peaceful areas to stay in with no traffic this is a prefect place to be in.

    Pros

    - job security
    - meet a lot of interesting
    - lots of technology options
    - improving lives via health care automation

    Cons

    - deadlines are king
    - long-term quality loses out to deadlines
    - once something is "done" (delivered) it will rarely get strengthened

    Advice to Management

    It should be important to the business to have quality solutions that last longer, not just hit deliveries.
