I worked at Cerner full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Cerner takes a genuine interest in their employees and their families (work/life balance is important). The extensive training Cerner invests in their employees in top notch and really prepares the employees to give the best service to their Clients. Cerner participates and gives back to the community and encourages employees and their families to do so as well. Cerner has a Health Clinic right on campus to minimize the time employees need to be out of work; encourages preventive care and a healthy lifestyle. The on campus cafeteria is like going to a 5 star restaurant with McDonald prices; foods from vegan, seafood, homestyle, etc and fresh made to order everyday. There is an on campus gym, fitness center, pool, raquetball courts etc. since they encourage their employees to reduce stress with physical fitness; a healthy body is a healthy mind and ultimately benefits the Clients.

Cons

The area I was in was consulting and the weeks on the road tend to take a toll after a while; often expected to teach classes, hold knowledge transfers etc on Fridays after being on the road catering to the Client for 50-60 hours Monday through Thursday. I expected pay increases more often or at least when they came around to be a larger percentage. The pay increases where based on the Corporation as a whole and not necessarily the venue in which the employee worked and their participation in the profits.

Advice to Management

Keep the family atmosphere and continue to include the employees and their families in the philanthropy. When an employee is paid on salary, refer back to their actual hours worked for the Client and in house with knowledge transfers...don't assume it's a typical 40 hour week.

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

    Pros

    -Good technologies to learn
    -Top of the tier to work in Kansas City

    Work depends greatly on the team, I was with nursing dept. It was good but the pay is really low. Also if you tell them you are quitting for more money , they will hate you (Upper management).

    Cons

    -No work life balance at all
    -Nerdsville
    -Have to kiss ass to go up the chain

    Advice to Management

    Dont hate appreciate, and pay better. Cerner is making billions but employees are not.
