Pros

Challenging work and all the opportunities you are willing to earn. Large international presence and if you have a desire to see the world you'd have a good chance with Cerner. Also a highly respected company in KC and the industry

Cons

Minimal training, there are plenty of chances to learn and expand but you have to seek them out yourself, they will not be given to you or thrown in your lap.

    I worked at Cerner full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Despite all the negative talk that goes around town with this place, there are a few pros to be had with them. MOST people have the chance to think and bring up ideas and run with them, though lots of management will take credit and keep you behind the scenes. That is really all I can think of. Stock is doing great and the benefits are pretty nice (if single) many with families find insurance with other places due to high rates.

    Cons

    There are many cons to this place. Most positions will have you working night and day with no thanks, or just hand you a pair of tickets, that is almost an insult. They never look out of the employee, only what is good for personal gain by the uppers and cabinet. You get shuffled around like cattle and they do not care, you are but a number. Reviews are based on visibility, so if you never get seen, you will never get a good raise and there is always a fall guy on the team to take the low review. They only hire college kids pretty much that are worthless because they have no real experience, but they would rather hire 3 people for the same salary as one guy that has a clue. They like to throw people at problems and that will fix it. It is a large company yet still feels like a start up business in many regards. You cannot trust HR, they will not keep things in confidence, and I would not trust anyone there. There are a few killer people there that are great and hold the company together, I am glad to have worked with all of those people. Salary is on the low end for any job in the KC market via IT. The company seems to strive on drama. Moving internally is usually doable if you do not like something, but many managers will block you. Do not believe the hype, they will lie to get you to join.

    Advice to Management

    You have way to many managers and not enough workers. You need to get a grip on what is going on internally, as you do not have a clue. You must start doing things with the worker in mind and not treat them as if they are cattle for your own personal gain. This is not a mom and pop shop, you must grow up and treat it like a stream lined enterprise. It is your company, yet you haven't a clue what is going on inside it. Wake up.
