Truly innovative

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Kansas City, MO

Pros1) 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.

Cons1) Parking for new hires is pretty bad.
2) Management can be unorganized, with sudden changes happening to projects quite frequently.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
