Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Lots of training opportunities and career opportunities --- if you put in 5+ years

Cons

Skill set not matched with position -- you are placed in a position completely based on "business need"; your job may change a few months in -- and you won't know about it until it's time to move, and you have no say in the change; managers don't care about new employees (mine did not speak to me or acknowledge me for 5 months); benefits are not as strong as you're lead to believe

Advice to Management

Review resumes and experience thoroughly, and utilize that information to place your employees where they'll make the greatest contribution to the company; don't take advantage of the week economy by reducing starting salaries -- salaries have dropped dramatically in the last 3 years, despite the company's record profits

    Pros

    Cerner provides an innovative environment where ideas and performance are rewarded.

    It is clear that to elevate to a Sr. Management position you have to leave the company for some time and come back or come from the outside.
