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

    Pros

    Cerner is composed of youthful energetic people. There seems to be an integrity among most and a sense you are contributing to making healthcare better. As a project manager, the processes seem very mature and seem to follow actual project management methods and management supports the right way to do things. People outside of Cerner often condemn the perceived "sweatshop" mentality and demands, but I find I have worked harder for less at other places. Cerner does make you feel valued as a person and employee. Other large local corporate employers (esp. in the Telecom industry) could learn a lot from Cerner.

    Cons

    This might be more a reflection of Healthcare IT, but things seem to be very Cerner-ified. Terminology is very proprietary and only loosely follows what you would consider to be traditional and accepted IT methods and terminology. I think as the industry matures, we are bound to see a shift in this regard. It's not a problem, it only makes it more challenging to translate experience and apply it at Cerner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers, I don't think have the management experience they need. This is probably a reflection of Cerner's rapid growth. Many seem very youthful and seem more interested in authority than growing the team professionally. There is a diversity in approaches but seems like theory x style management rules the day.
