    I have been working at Cerner full-time

    Pros

    There are different avenues to take your career based on your particular interests, good benefits with a diverse group of employees

    Cons

    I imagine this to be true of most companies this size being that if your numbers are good (in whatever context to your job) then your work will be recognized. Any +1s will be acknowledged but not compensated for accordingly if your numbers aren't met

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

    Pros

    There is a great Developer culture that if you engage in can be very rewarding! Also becasue everything is performance based you get a change to do more but only if you ask for it.

    Cons

    The pay could be better and the new hire selection could be harder and designed to test them in real life scenarios more like DevCenter. Because it is performance driven if you are passive or an introvert it is a lot harder and takes longer to get good raises or promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Have higher standards for new hires.

    Pros

    Ability to telework when necessary, good location (Kansas City is awesome), excellent teams

    Cons

    Pay is less than most companies in the area with similar jobs, health insurance is very expensive (high deductible too)

    Advice to Management

    Make pay more competitive and base on experience, not corporate policies (i.e. This is what everybody starts at, so this is where you start at regardless of Masters Degree and 10 years experience in the field)... this decrease turnover, create happy employees, and productivity will increase.
