Does Cerner offer massages?

Pros

->All Associates(Thats the substitution for word people or colleagues in Cerner) are very friendly in Cerner. ->A Lot of patience is displayed by everyone. ->You learn a lot in terms of Development practices or S/W development, Especially if u were not into Agile(which is used here) and want to learn more about the software development tips and tricks. ->Salary is good compared to other companies. [More about this in Cons] ->Few extra benefits are also available like free physician+ Health Coach+ Nutritionist(Each of them might cost atleast 500rs to 1000rs or approx $10-$15 outside), Free Zumba, Fitness club, etc, Free Gym for all associates. ->Being honest is appreciated, even if you do mistakes. And its forgiven for first few times, and also a general discussion will be held so that everyone are following the same. ->Almost a plastic free zone in every place possible, so you get a cup and free insulated water bottle. ->Constant EMails from the CEO regarding major changes. which puts a smile on your face.

Cons

->CTC Figure is very good, but breakdown is very bad. Eg: Even though you get a good individual insurance for the premium of 150rs-250rs, you are mandated to avail family insurance of much higher premium(10 times more than above figure) even if you don't want this scheme. ->No Bonus provided in this company. ->We have to pay for our Gratuity, which we may or may not get back. ->There is rumor that every year or so, company's appraisal will be 1 month delayed, Which means that salary hike of $10 or 20 from every employee is gone for a month. ->Don't expect laptop Dock's if you are used to in previous companies. All you get is a laptop, a charger and a monitor+Keyboard+ mouse. You will have to plug in and plug out daily. ->Work life balance might be impaired if you are in critical fields such as manager, or tenured associate, since escalations might come anytime any day, and you need to be ready. These below just enhances employee experience as per my opinion: ->No tissue boxes provided. ->Don't expect free quality tea/coffee( You get some tea bags, which no one uses, and a coffee dispatcher), nor Food coupons. ->No surprise goodies. This is generally provided if a company is doing beyond expectations, or as expected.

Advice to Management

->Please provide options for insurance policies. Let the associates choose the plans. ->Please provide Quality tea/coffee dispatcher or a free store if possible. Associates are constantly stressed out in MNCs and this 10 min break will help a lot. ->If possible, please plan to provide a laptop Dock and kensington lock to lock everything. Its just a 1 time investment and helps associates a lot in time and convenience. ->Constant E-Mails from the CEO regarding major changes. which puts a smile on your face. Good job there.
