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

Pros

Long term career potential
Working with very intelligent people
Gym on site

Cons

Poor management
False hope
Feeling 'stuck' in a role because it benefits the team when talents could be utilized in other roles
Micro managed
Feeling guilty for using a sick day when you are actually very Ill
Extremely draining and hard not to leave work at work
Expected to work through lunch and clock extra hours consistently
On-call responsibilities periodically with no extra pay
Hiring people in who are fast - tracked to higher roles when other current associates are equally if not more qualified. It makes them feel unimportant.
Good luck getting into the walk in clinic on site when you are sick

Advice to Management

Listen to your associate feedback. Is it really worth losing a valued associate because you won't match pay that the person should be receiving in a higher role with more responsibility? There is a lot of turnover because people find that they can earn more and have a better work life balance outside of Cerner.

    Pros

    I must admit I learned a lot working at Cerner. The Employee Stock Purchase and Other Benefits are great. The one thing I can say about working here is I was never bored

    Cons

    The hire people right out of college and thus they offer a great and competitive starting salary, but they don't do enough to keep that salary competitive after time. Also they amount of Hours they desire the Salary employee is over 45, and when I was there was typically in the 55+ range
