It's a great company to start with but not stay too long.

Pros

Fast moving company that is trying to change how health care uses technology. There are plenty of opportunities to move up within the company and if you don't like what you're doing just wait 6 months and you could be doing something else.

Cons

Benefits are terrible. Competitive benefits is just marketing. The company is more focused on sales than software so if you're in consulting you'll be well supported but if you're in the dev groups be ready to churn out code as fast as someone can sell it.

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

    Pros

    They 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.

    Cons

    Horrible 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 Management

    Respect what your employees do for you everyday.

    Pros

    Cerner does an excellent job of "walking the talk" of being a health company. Not only do the solutions strive to promote health, but the associates are able to take part in many aspects of a wellness program.

    Cons

    Not much to improve on but I think it would be great if the comany was more open to addressing individual associate issues and situations on a more indiviual basis. It seems that more often than not, an associate needs to fit into a predefined square hole, even if the associate is more of a round peg.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if there was a greater effort to recognize and meet individual associate needs.
