    Pros

    High level of competency across the board. Cerner has a culture of integrity, innovation, and excellence, because the vast majority of people here take pride in doing their job well. It's in the midwest, so people are down to earth, and friendly. Cerner solves problems that can help healthcare providers do their jobs more effectively - the work here feels important.

    Cons

    Recent growth at Cerner means office space is getting tighter. A new campus is under construction, but for now, it's pretty cozy!

  2. "Learning" from the best players in the industry

    Pros

    Plenty of teams working in almost all the technologies in market. So, you can learn so much. Ideal for a fresher.
    No chance for company not performing well overall. Nothing stopping its growth in the future too because of the everlasting health care industry. A string job-safety feeling.

    Cons

    Average to below average compensation. Leave policy and benefits not up to market standards especially at Software Engineer beginners level.

    Best benefits if working onsite in Kansas City, MO. Benefits are not as plentiful if working at remote locations.

    Step up the benefits for those working at ITworks sites.

    Pros

    competitive salaries, good benefits, high quality employees. Company is on the rise and the premier employer in Kansas City

    Cons

    demanding work schedules during busy times. Annual review/raise process is setup highly in the company's favor.

    Advice to Management

    consider revising annual review policy and how associates are recognized and given promotions/raises. Otherwise, great job.

    Pros

    Great insurance and benefits. Love the gym and the healthy living culture - talk walks in the afternoon with co workers, go to lunchtime gym classes, healthy cafe. Large company with international opportunities

    Cons

    The building I work in is not the best. Think soul crushing cubicles in the basement.

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance. This company really does CARE about it's employees. This is a company where your efforts are rewarded. Working hard is appreciated and rewarded.

    Cons

    The only con..working as a virtual (remote) associate you miss a lot of the 'ad hoc' meetings that take place on a day to day basis.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep the associates involved and listening to your clients!
