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 ManagementAdvice

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

    it's hard to maintain work/life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    managers should spend more time listening to the people they manage and take their professional development seriously. It would help retention if employees knew their future was taken seriously.

    Pros

    great benefits. Solid company with ambitious vision.

    Cons

    Seems to me that some people get discouraged with so many reorgs and top executives moving people around that we no longer know what our team is and who are we supposed to follow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't mix team cultures too drastically. You are loosing lots of talent.
