No work life balance. Do not work here if you have kids. Cernerworks leadership sucks,

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 Management

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

    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.

    Pros

    I have been fortunate to be in one of the teams that does not work the way cerner has worked traditionally. We work more like a startup , put less emphasis on the red tape and process and actually get a lot of work done. Unfortunately this isn't true for lot of other people that I know. Some pros that I can think of top of my head. 1. Start up like culture. 2. Lot of room for growth. 3. Given lot of responsibilities early in my career. 4. Lean company.

    Cons

    Compensation is on the low end of the range compared to similar companies. Company does not value its employees and does not reward them well. I guess this flows from the top. Employees are just treated as resources which leads to lot of attrition. A lot of good employees knowing that they can get better compensated/rewarded elsewhere will eventually leave after 3-5 years in the company. As a result the company ends up with mediocre employees which will lead to mediocre products that look and work like crap.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are what drive the value of your company. Take good care and compensate them well. Hiring standards need to improve drastically , a bunch of behavioral questions is not going to tell who is a good engineer and who is not.
