    Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Kansas City, MO

    I have been working at Cerner full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Stable career, okay pay, onsite facilities, get to work with some very talented people.

    Cons

    Too many hours, I felt like i was at work 24/7. Promotions without a pay increase until reviews come around. Lack of vision by upper management. Teams seemed to be re-organized about once a year. 20 solutions to do one task rather than one excellent solution. Expect to work 60+ hours a week. Internal workflows for service requests are horrendous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better quality of life for your employees, better long term vision for upper management, better compensation.

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

    Pros

    Compensation is decent for Kansas City (If you negotiate in the beginning).
    Flexible work hours. (Again, this is team specific)
    Manager acts like a friend outside the office and is a nice guy in general.
    Work is challenging and interesting, you learn new things everyday.
    Free gym, if you work out.

    Cons

    Promotions are difficult to get if don't know the right people.
    Pay increments aren't great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invent more in the existing talent than hiring newer people and paying them high salaries.
