Good place to start your career, but horrible place to end it

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Kansas City, MO

I have been working at Cerner

ProsThey hire people straight out of college, so you don't need a lot of experience. If you manage to get on a good team, work can be a fun, enjoyable place. There are a lot of internal opportunities to move around if you're wanting to try something new.

ConsHorrible work/life balance and your satisfaction lies purely in the hands of the team you're placed on. If you get a good manager things aren't so bad, but there are teams that work 60-80 hours a week once or twice a month.

Advice to Senior ManagementRespect what your employees do for you everyday.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
