    it was through fidelity during my tenure there, and it was overall relatively low fee, but did not have many options

    Company match is Cerner stock only.

    Only a match. I didn't love that at all because when they know you're straight out of college, it's less likely you will be adding a significant amount. Would rather have had them put a fixed percentage into my 401k every paycheck

    6% match, vested, 401k matched with company stock

    Cerner matches 33% of what the employee contributes with Cerner stock. Industry standards are 50% to 100%. Cerner stock has been FLAT for the LAST FIVE YEARS. Example = Employee invests 6% in the 401K, the company matches 1.98% (not even 2%) which is not very good for a large company. An additional 2% may be added by Cerner "if fiscal goals are met." Being forced to hold the stock for 3 years was an awful rule that ended recently.

    not enough options and takes too long to vest

    Cerner provides solid health insurance plans. It has the in house gym/clinic and medicine store which helps greatly. It doesnt give annual bonus.

    Match is not that great. We did not get a secondary match either.
