    I have been working at Cerner full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working at Cerner almost 2 years and have loved it. The work in health care is inspiring, and the amount of time and energy they put into developing associates is fantastic. Not only do you have amazing career opportunities and room for growth, but there also benefits like a gym, doctors office, pharmacy, and cafeteria all at work.

    Cons

    The work-life balance can be a little stressful at times, but as long as communicated with your manager, it's definitely manageable!

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you take time to develop your associates and really make sure they know you want to see them succeed.

    I worked at Cerner full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty face with a licensure requirement to keep projects deviating from becoming a sentinel design flaw. Little worth in team atmosphere but pay is equivalent to salary. Have to be use to a 25 year old being your Project Engagement Leader. They think they know health-care regulations or even act like a licensed medical professional, because the 2 year tenure.

    Cons

    Worth, job satisfaction, dishonestly of recruitment and 30-40% turn over in this segment. Most all Clinical Consultant stay 18 months and leave. Training is a complete train wreck. 3 months of nothing but noise and bickering. Chaos. Probably reason they serve beer on Fridays.

    Advice to Management

    Company highly fractured from top bottom. Because of high turn over the culture is climbing to the top by stepping on people's heads versus raising people through a job ladder. HCE have no place to go after their job advancement.

    Pros

    Benefits are good
    Great work environment

    Cons

    Support analyst take back to back calls all day long.
    They say you can apply to different positions after 18 months, however this isn’t the case. The process takes forever because they only allow two people applying at a time and your manager has to approve you.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more analyst so associates don’t get burnt out and are not over worked.
