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

    Pros

    Interaction with clients as a device administrator makes the job completely worthwhile, as client appreciation is immense when it means restoring their ability to do their job.

    Cons

    If you're not careful when applying for this position, the recruiters will not hesitate to sign you up for an hourly rate that is on the lower side of the scale.

    Advice to Management

    On-site IT is the face of your company, you need to make the client feel that they are being well taken care of, and this means making it possible for on site IT to do this as an extension of your company.

    I have been working at Cerner full-time

    Pros

    Great salary for out of college people especially in KC
    They give lots of material to study
    I was placed with more experienced people that helped me when needed

    Cons

    Big corporation with no concern for the development of the individual
    If you're not a quick learner don't even think about it
    Don't expect to have support from your trainer
    If you mess up they have you under a radar from that point on

    Advice to Management

    I know it is hard to get to know every employee but if they are there in front of you, they have done something great along the way to even be in that seat. Treat them like human beings and don't downplay everything they had to go through in order to get that position especially not a college grad IN TRAINING (not in their assigned role).

    Pros

    Healthcare software is important. We do have locker rooms with showers! And the dresscode is not too strict.

    Cons

    Not a lot of emphasis on quality or meeting client needs; just "checking the box". The office here lacks everything that makes Cerner standout. There isn't a gym, free childcare, on-site clinicians and pharmacy, yoga classes, game room, maker-space, etc. There's a bland, corporate and stuffy culture in Malvern, Pa.

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

    Pros

    Growing company that has an innovative approach to employee healthcare. Offices in Kansas City are really nice and are building a new campus which looks fabulous

    Cons

    Overall Benefits are just okay (401k match is in company stock).
    If you are remote, and don't live in KC, feels like you are left on the outside looking in. Little room for advancement outside of KC.
    High turnover rate, seems to be more into their processes than their employees

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on People and less on Process.

    Pros

    Good people, had success with the group I worked with which was acknowledged and appreciated.

    Cons

    Benefits, healthcare was the most expensive I ever had to pay and covered the least.
    Supported an ATOS contract with Siemens, our group did not fit.

    Fix the broken benefits package.

    Pros

    One of the most advanced places you will work in IT. It will feel like you are worked hard but you will learn how to handle complex problems that will benefit you in the future.

    Cons

    Basic things can become overly complex and difficult to always produce good results.

    Advice to Management

    Know who your people are that really make the place run and take care of them. Have those people mentor up and coming.
