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

    Good benefits. health clinic on site. fitness center on site. Medical software is booming right now so the market is very big.

    Cons

    Very slow development process. Teams do not cooperate. Low salaries. Salary growth is very slow. So-called "Cerner culture" is something that always pissed me off. Not too many smart people around. Those who are smart, they don't talk/interact with "others". often your career depends on who you know and who is your friend (that's how you can move in a good team and get a cool project or even travel somewhere nice, like Dubai, or France...)
