I have been working at Cerner full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great benefits, fun technology. Lots of opportunity to transfer within

Cons

75+ hour weeks are the norm. I have never worked less than a 60 hour week. Even during a slow time I will work 60 hours a week. Oncall is all the time. They cannot attract talented system engineers due to below industry pay and a horrible reputation within the IT community. They will lie to you about the hours just to get you onboard.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give us a break. Let us leave work at work Dont make me miss my daughters birthday to satisfy an arbitrary deadline. Clean house at the director level and above across cernerworks.

    Pros

    Great people, great experience, and lots of opportunities to grow. They let you manage your own career here.

    Cons

    Known for not paying top dollar for talent. Raises based on the bell curve, not competive, no cost of living increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The words "highly valued" and a raise of <5% don't exactly go together.

    Pros

    Young people to work with (mostly in their 20's. Even the older more senior people are young at heart). Very "healthy" culture, they encourage working out and eating right which helps motivate yourself. Company does really well which makes you feel good about working for them. They do treat employees really well too, I feel respected. I also work with just some amazing and smart people.

    Cons

    Your job is your life, you better love what you do.
