I have been working at Cerner full-time for 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 have been working at Cerner full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great work experience; highly intelligent associates; sr. leadership is visionary; the applications we build affect me, my family, and friends; leadership has invested time and energy into my career growth; great benefits (I walk downstairs to go to the clinic & pharmacy).

    Cons

    Cerner is growing very fast and we are experiencing physical growing pains with parking and seating challenges. But that's a good problem to have!

    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.
