    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Kansas City, MO

    Pros

    - good pay for Kansas city area.
    - innovations campus is a nice place to work.
    - Work is good if you are lucky to get a nice team.

    Cons

    - Risk of being fired.
    - If you are hired as a Software Engineer, you risk being fired from Devcenter or sent to Support. Join Only if you know which team you are going into.
    - Ask if you have to go through Devcenter. If yes then you are going to have a very unpleasant experience.
    - Senior management is ignorant/ turn a blind eye to decisions made by mid level management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Dont make fake promises about job to new employees.
    - Give new employees an opportunity to prove themselves.
    - Encourage teams to hire employees directly and not to make Engineers go through Devcenter and then fire them.

    FRUSTRATING, EXTREMELY STRESSFUL, ZERO MANAGEMENT

    Current Employee - Velocity Software Engineering:  in  Kansas City, MO
    Current Employee - Velocity Software Engineering: in Kansas City, MO

    Pros

    i don't see any pros in this company except you want to work like animals or machines. It s not a healthcare company. Its a HEALTH RUINING company

    Cons

    If you are deciding to work at Cerner, Don't think TWICE, THINK 10 Times.!!! No management at all. Training is absolutely pathetic. People will put you on some random project which is of no use and not of your choice as well. Few of the staff who is leading the training program have extremely bad attitude. They will treat you like donkeys. People in training are stressed, frustrated like anything. and after you put hell lot of efforts, they will kick you out for no reason. even if you succeed in getting through training, you will be having a trade show where you "sell yourself". and I mean literally as if you are saying to managers, "please take me". If you don't clear two trade shows, you may get fired or sent to support team. IF you succeed in trade show, don't waste your time to move from any other city to ruin your health & career.
