    Current Employee - Delivery Consultant in Kansas City, KS

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

    Pros

    There is a gym onsite, when you absolutely must, you can work from home, some teams are more flexible than others

    Cons

    48 hr a week minimum expectation, not family friendly, best for a fresh out of college familyless person

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer alternate work schedules, make it more family friendly and your employees will stay instead of leaving when they reach that milestone in life. When AMS has experienced people, it will provide the besr service. It takes 2 yrs to really know how to do your job and that's when people are usually leaving

    Pros

    Great place to develop skills and learn. If you are on a good team, you will love it and have a career for life.

    Cons

    If you end up on a bad team, it will be rough and you will hate your life! You end up having to work extremely hard because of the ecosystem of the company and naturally will be over worked if you want to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to engage with employees and be more involved with their career development. Need to gauge employee workload better to prevent workers from getting burnt out.

    Pros

    Brilliant group of young professionals from all over the globe.
    Relaxed dress code.
    Top quality engineering workstations.
    Excellent cafeteria.

    Cons

    The management used psychological games to make employees compete against each other to keep their jobs. My team was told in a meeting, that upper management was not happy with the team, and that at least one person would be getting fired during the next review, all of which turned out to be lies told to make everyone work harder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It doesn't have to be like that in order to make money, even some of you managers would be much better off working for a company that values the employees work-life balance.

    I have been working at Cerner

    Pros

    Cerner is willing to give smart recent grads a job, training, and decent salary.

    Cons

    You can easily get lost in the group because your career is 100% based of business need and 0% based of your interests and skills. If a friend asked me if they should apply I would say no.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more of your resources into non WHQ sites. ITWorks and International sites get all of the mandates of big Cerner without any of the perks.

    I have been working at Cerner as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Company is growing fast and hiring alot of new people.
    Culture is very friendly and relaxed.
    They are very helpful and want you to learn alot and have fun doing it

    Not a whole lot of downside. Rellocation needed, by KCMO is a great place with plenty to do.
    They push you to work hard and and find work you are interested in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job with your recruiting process, definitely made me want to come work for Cerner and live in KCMO

    I have been working at Cerner full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Flexibility
    * Convenience of gym, pharmacy, clinic, work from home
    * Network with other similar associates
    * For the most part you are appreciated and recognized

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to do, but not a lot of resources to do it. This often leaves people feeling over worked, stressed, and easily burnt out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have had a decent experience with management. I think they feel our pain when we are overworked. They do the best they can by recognizing us, but there is only so much we can do.

    Former Employee - Engagement Controller in Kansas City, MO

    I worked at Cerner full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You're on your own schedule (assuming you don't schedule any meetings). Great experience with project management: financial aspect (great learning experience), event planning, administrative tasks, a lot of networking within the company and also with external clients. The team is great! Management encouraged us to develop which ever skills we wanted to help us grow in our career. If ever I needed help, all I had to do was ask. The chance to travel: I got to go abroad and to many places with in the US! Great company!! Work hard and you will be recognized. Easy to get promoted. Only reason I left was because my boyfriend was relocated and I couldn't work remotely.

    Cons

    It got a bit administrative at times: granting access, taking notes during meetings, etc. but it was good to get the experience. Some projects are very large and can be very demanding. Nothing a good attitude and communication can't fix.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!!
