    Positive culture and good values. Awesome headquarters and building campuses.

    Health insurance could be better but I personally don't like FSA's. Too difficult to claim FSA reimbursement for money that is yours

    Pros

    Pretty stable company in a field that isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

    Cons

    People are more or less unimaginative. The feeling in the office is very stale and the dynamic of the company is robotic and sometimes bogged down in bureaucratic red tape.

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

    Pros

    Still just started for almost two months. But it is great because they treat you like a adult and will not intervene as long as you are doing your job correctly. Working at home / in business is a good balance. Makes me think why people want to go somewhere else. You will learn so much. In comparison to my old job, learning is so slow versus here, you will do the same thing over and over and will become an expert in no time. They are open to ideas. If you have a good idea, they will give you the time and resource to work on it. Great benefits, great location, great people.

    Cons

    If you are at entry level, like me, you will get left behind if you don't try to catch up. You have to be entirely independent. You have to make your own work ethic. Even if you ask for help, everyone wants to go home on time, so people are very reluctant to help. It would be great if there was a mentor scheduled to only lead those that are new / newer / need improvement so its a smooth process. Because I don't like this, I am making a curriculum for new people so it's smoother next time.

    Advice to Management

    Recommended to get a "shift" mentor per day so things can smooth out. I understand people are busy. But this is the starter either people are going to develop good or bad habits. It is critical to mold early on then later.

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

    Pros

    Active work environment, fair pay, advancement, health benefits and clean work space. The company is booming along with its market.

    Cons

    Stress varies depending in the org you're in. Advancement can be easily diminished if they don't have enough positions to hand out or if your timing is bad.

    Advice to Management

    Don't limit raises or promotions to a cap. You have many associates over qualified for the roles you've given .
