    Pros

    Pay
    Benefits
    Growing at a rapid rate

    Cons

    The 48 hours a week expected work hours and learning "The Cerner Way"... it is like drinking from a fire hose. ... it hurts until you adjust or break.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a more seemless transition point or process so the 1st day the associate is in their team they can be productive and not be in "Land of the Lost" .... more training on applications configurations and Issue Response (Break/Fix).

    Poor people skills in management go unnoticed.. I've seen some very cruel people in authority. Leadership training would benefit many.
