    I have been working at Cerner full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Positions with work from home options. Good place to have on a resume to get your foot in the door at other places.

    Cons

    Slow review cycles and generally slow wage increases with a lot of poor entry level experiences that will sour a lot of new employees first couple years on the job.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the experience of entry level positions by adding greater flexibility and better base pay.

    I worked at Cerner full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great experience. I was lucky to work on a very important team with some extremely intelligent people. Challenging projects and open-minded engineers. Code quality and testing highly stressed. Also really fond of my management. I would highly recommend them as a starter-mid level position. High visibility company and well-known name in the EHR field. Also brand new, very cool building for engineers.

    Cons

    24-hour support call duties every few weeks, but very team dependent. Plenty of middle-of-the-night weekend calls lasting hours. Towards the end, was working 60-80 hour weeks for a few months to meet project deadlines and really took a health toll. Culture basically nonexistant but they do try. Compensation was decent but glacial. Newer hires making more than me after years of experience. Lots of proprietary knowledge useless at other companies. Feels like you can never leave, but I'm living proof. Expect to have your salary bumped quite a bit at your next position.
