I worked at Cerner full-time

Pros

Great place to start your career and figure out what career role/path suits you best. Social activities are great to make connections.

Cons

Benefits are extremely expensive to use. Management rarely pay attention to the pros or don't give much reward for employee achievements, mainly just a pat on the back. Excessive overtime, on call 24/7 without any incentive. Starting pay not so great either, if you want to be paid what you deserve it's probably it'll take between 5-10 years. Best to get your experience for 2-3 years and move on to a company that offers better benefits and pay.

Advice to Management

Improve employee benefits, reward employees for major achievements they have earned for the company.

    I have been working at Cerner full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The process for career advancement is very transparent. All jobs have clear descriptions and it is easy to find the expectations you need to meet to advance your career.

    Cons

    They expect you to work 20% overtime all the time. That is an unofficial metric they use to compare associates. You are also put oncall 24/7 with out additional compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more external training.

    managers should spend more time listening to the people they manage and take their professional development seriously. It would help retention if employees knew their future was taken seriously.
