    I worked at Cerner full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits. If you do decide to work at this place, make sure you ask for top-dollar. They will pay it.

    Cons

    Horrid work/life balance. Very unprofessional and inexperienced management. Very antiquated processes. Bizzare "Banding" process and evaluation based on overtime hours, not end results. Way to many chiefs and not enough indians. I was looking for the door after 6 weeks and I was a Sr. Manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying to new hires. Stop promoting unqualified people to exec positions and then ignoring what they do...they will kill your company in the long-run. When this company is bought-out by MSoft, Oracle, or some foreign entity, the company will be gutted and most management will be replaced by real professionals.
