    Pros

    Good health insurance, lost of brilliant and talented engineers

    Cons

    Long long hours are expected, night and evening work is regular and you still have to be in at 8 am the next day. The regions split in infrastructure is a nightmare. A few of the new execs came from Cerner works and run their teams like a master would run a slave ship. No room for error. Many are fired for simple mistakes. Not nearly enough engineers to cover the backlog of work. Server reclamation status alone is around 8 months behind schedule. Most good associates leave after 6 months to a year

    Advice to Management

    Clean house in the NA region. Leasdership is inept.

  2. SolutionWorks =/= Software Engineer

    Pros

    Stable Company
    Decent ability to move around (after 2 years)
    Good culture and work place
    Specific skill set that is being used a lot right now

    Cons

    SolutionWorks is probably the worst group inside the company to be placed in.
    Hardly working with code
    Performance is purely based on metrics, nothing else
    Job title should be more like Customer Solutions (Technical) Analyst or something

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be on a more personal level to my manager, so I'll use this as a comment section.. Would I recommend this to a friend? If they were going into the position I was, no. If they were in a different department inside of Cerner, probably. This market is driven a lot on the political landscape so the outlook for 6 months looks good. 2+ years, however, is a question mark.
    They should definitely invest in getting Neal public speaking courses or something, because he drops Cerner stock every time he speaks in a public forum.
