Pros

+ An okay starter company after graduating college.

Cons

- If you wanted to have a career change, it can be hard because Cerner skills are not transferable.
- Culture is not open or helpful.
- Management tends to fall into cronyism hiring trends.
- Team leads/managers do not assign new projects (possibly interesting work) to employees equitably.
- "If you don't like it here, we can find someone to replace you" mentality rather than trying to rectify employee grievances.
- If you went through the System Engineer Velocity program and get placed anywhere other than CernerWorks, it can be very hard to get a CernerWorks position should you try to move after 18 months (minimum time on a team before an employee can switch)

Advice to Management

Treat associates with respect. Do not belittle them. Management should care more about an employees growth.

    Pros

    Benefits are competitive and you get a sabbatical if you survive long enough.

    Cons

    Never ending workweeks and slave mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Become human
