Pros

Good first job. You'll gain lots of useful experience. However, be prepared to work some long hours. If you're a hard charger, you can move up the ladder fast.

Cons

No work/life balance. Most employees are underpaid. Employee performance reviews are done using the bell curve. It's best to get your feet wet with Cerner and then 2-3 years down the road, use that experience to catapult you to a better job.

Advice to Management

Focus more on retaining the talent you've got, instead of thinking everyone is easily replaceable by the next crop of college kids.

    Pros

    Challenging, growing company, endless opportunities because of the rapid growth

    Cons

    You will work very hard, but the work I've done has been mostly, very interesting. There is a steep learning curve in consulting.,


  2. Don't bother unless you like a "good old boys" environment.

    Pros

    They rarely fire managers or new hires even if they make no contribution, they just pass people around to different groups.

    Cons

    Middle and upper management consist mainly of a set of good old boys who pretend to know the latest technologies and industry trends, but are really living in the '90's. They rest on the laurels gained merely from undeserved longevity. Those of us who are current in our skills and knowledge get no support or recognition, and most of our work is never even used.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the talent you have and stop pandering to new hires out of college who are using you only as a stepping stone to a better company.
