I worked at Cerner full-time

Pros

Great people, aggressively innovative, great vision and motivated culture, comprehensive approach to building the patient centric electronic health record, poised for growth - constantly focuses on "what's next".

Cons

A bit too focused on cost control and profit margins instead of using it's tremendous cash reserves to expand its reach and influence into new areas. Does not seem to value older associates with experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't give up on the legacy applications. There is a lot of innovation left in the electronic record.

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

    Pros

    1) Cerner is definitely dedicated to the improvement of health care systems, which makes any job related to IP dev rewarding.
    2) Training is heavily invested in. New associates aren't expected to know every single detail when brought on.
    3) Cerner has an approach of hiring as much talent as they can, as opposed to squeezing every last bit out of existing employees. While projects can become a bit overwhelming, new hires and consultants are being brought on every week to help.
    4) They really do invest a ton of time in testing code, which is nice because if you make a mistake, it will almost always get caught before going to production.

    Cons

    1) Parking for new hires is pretty bad.
    2) Management can be unorganized, with sudden changes happening to projects quite frequently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on rewarding employees who deliver as opposed to those who have been with the company for years.

    I worked at Cerner full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As long as you are ambitious, committed, and have one of the good managers Cerner is a good place to work. It's not a place for anyone who just wants a 'job' . You have to care.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are log hours, but what company doesn't have long hours these days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue trying to make things better.
