    I have been working at Cerner full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you land in the right role and management buys in to the culture HR tries to push, you will enjoy flexibility and a slew of onsite benefits (gym, classes, cafeteria, clinic, and pharmacy.) There are some really good people here and they make the job.

    Cons

    Most struggle to find the work/life balance and have issues with excessive stress pushed by management.

    Additionally, Cerner hires the majority of it's employees right out of college, allowing them to pay minimally compared to other employers in the market (recruits don't know better). While compensation targets are competitive to the market - they never pay you at your target. Unless you go in to sales, traveling delivery consultant, or a senior management you won't be seeing the $$.

    Cerner undervalues tenure, and you get no pay increase for getting your masters degree and minimal for promotions. However, they do hire in people into an "executive training" program and put them in high impact positions with high compensation despite a lack of training (over more deserving tenured employees.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    50-50 shot on whether or not the senior management is worth what they are getting paid. Some work very hard and deserve their success; some push their work on new associates and take credit without a real understanding of how to grow their business/innovate.
