Pros

Fast moving company that is trying to change how health care uses technology. There are plenty of opportunities to move up within the company and if you don't like what you're doing just wait 6 months and you could be doing something else.

Cons

Benefits are terrible. Competitive benefits is just marketing. The company is more focused on sales than software so if you're in consulting you'll be well supported but if you're in the dev groups be ready to churn out code as fast as someone can sell it.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    They hire people straight out of college, so you don't need a lot of experience. If you manage to get on a good team, work can be a fun, enjoyable place. There are a lot of internal opportunities to move around if you're wanting to try something new.

    Cons

    Horrible work/life balance and your satisfaction lies purely in the hands of the team you're placed on. If you get a good manager things aren't so bad, but there are teams that work 60-80 hours a week once or twice a month.

    Advice to Management

    Respect what your employees do for you everyday.

    Pros

    Compensation is good for entry level Engineers

    Cons

    Employees are overworked.Cerner Corp shows tremendous loyalty towards its old employees at senior levels at the cost of ignoring freshers and lower level employees. This affects the growth of an individual in an organization and also lowers one's confidence forcing employees to seek opportunities outside.This in turn affects the organization as talent is being lost to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    The whole organization in Cerner India needs to be restructured and talented Computer Science professionals need to fill the higher rungs of the Management and not engineers from others streams of Engineering as they wouldn't know what it means to be a good Software Developer.
