I worked at Cerner full-time (less than a year)

Pros

A very organized company with many resources at hand. Great opportunities for training and education

Cons

Very result oriented company and has too many managerial levels to deal with. Can not seem to get a good handle on management roles in employee's day to day activities

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to be less of a manager and more of a co-worker which will provide many more experiences

    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.
