Pros

Great company with a lot of room to move up.

Cons

Salary does not always match the expereince. You can make a lot more as a consultant or working within a hospital or healthcare organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managers are very down to earth and easy to talk to. Need to be more transparent. Managers travel to much.

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

    Pros

    Pay was decent. A few good employees. A good place for entry-level college grads who can be "programmed" into the Cerner way of thinking.

    Cons

    Benefits were sub-par. Hours expected to work were ridiculous. 65-70 hours weeks were not uncommon. Constant firedrills due to management's lack of direction. Unfortunately management didn't recognize any suggestions for improvement other than their own. Seemed company had a knack of hiring people that were either inexperienced or incompetent. It was obvious a lot of people were just there for a paycheck. Somehow they managed to keep their jobs. The good employees only stayed for a year or two then left the company. This was by far the most poorly managed, unorganized, dysfunctional place I've ever worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something, anything, to keep good employees. And for God's sake, be serious when you give your "work/life balance" propaganda speeches.

    Excellent opportunities for growth; flexibility a necessity.

    Pros

    If you put your energy into going the extra mile, limiting your use of the phrase "that is not my job", and are determined to succeed, you will go far, fast here.

    Cons

    Nearly every job with a good trajectory for your career requires a significant amount of travel. 50+%

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on where you want the company to succeed, not on everything that could potentially be done. Empower employees to fix problems before they become disasters.
