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

Pros

-good training and they do a good job of easing you into your role
-freedom to manage your own workload how you please

Cons

-can be very tedious at times
-hours can be out of control depending on the time of year
-work/life balance is poor at quarter end and they aren't accommodating during holidays so makes it hard to see family friends at these times

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try not make employees less prone to high turnaround due to long hours and work/life balance by being more accommodating

    Interesting work, but advancement seems stalled

    I worked at Cerner part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work, variety of work, some good people. Like any workplace, you find the people you like to work with and you stick with them and it should be fine. I did learn a lot and gained experience while I was there.

    Cons

    Seems difficult to progress and move up. I couldn't help but feel I was being used rather than being part of a team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in paving a pathway of excellence for your employees, rather than viewing them as workhorses.

  2. Great company, but dashboards are for cars

    I worked at Cerner

    Pros

    IT galore! Great concept and need in today's world - Growing company is great for KC!

    Cons

    Too many "Bobs" .. I reported to no fewer than 5 middle-managers in my 3 years there. Management often used job security as a motivation, or scare, tactic. Some might call that "toxic".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote the right people. Fewer Bobs.
