Pros

Great place to start your career and figure out what career role/path suits you best. Social activities are great to make connections.

Cons

Benefits are extremely expensive to use. Management rarely pay attention to the pros or don't give much reward for employee achievements, mainly just a pat on the back. Excessive overtime, on call 24/7 without any incentive. Starting pay not so great either, if you want to be paid what you deserve it's probably it'll take between 5-10 years. Best to get your experience for 2-3 years and move on to a company that offers better benefits and pay.

Advice to Management

Improve employee benefits, reward employees for major achievements they have earned for the company.

    Pros

    if you are just graduate from college, this is a good place to building tech ability. they have a good training program for new engineer.

    Cons

    working hour is a little bit difficult for a person who always go to bed latter; regular time is 8 - 5, you will need to have a nap around 2PM :)

  2. Good team atmosphere with hard working co-workers

    Pros

    Fast-paced, never boring as there is always more work to be done. The end result of improving patient care is always what's most important to Cerner associates and I see it repeated daily.

    Cons

    Promotions are based on how many years you've been there, so you're not in control of your career. Dealing with unsatisfied physicians and nurses is exhausting, especially when half the time they are the ones that mess up and blame it on the software.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees with small bonuses or incentives. We finished a 9 week training program and got nothing for it. It would have been a great statement from management to say that the work was appreciated and would help retain employees to stay at the company longer.
