    Great office environment, good place to work, good benefits, free gym and good kitchen. Management pretty straight

    Pros

    Challenging. Once you get to know people, you figure out who the bright and good ones are. Overall, it's a great staff.

    Cons

    Sometimes stressful. Can work a lot at times. That's the same at all jobs though, so it's not a negative towards Cerner

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None currently.

    I have been working at Cerner as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Company is growing fast and hiring alot of new people.
    Culture is very friendly and relaxed.
    They are very helpful and want you to learn alot and have fun doing it

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of downside. Rellocation needed, by KCMO is a great place with plenty to do.
    They push you to work hard and and find work you are interested in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job with your recruiting process, definitely made me want to come work for Cerner and live in KCMO

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

    Pros

    You're on your own schedule (assuming you don't schedule any meetings). Great experience with project management: financial aspect (great learning experience), event planning, administrative tasks, a lot of networking within the company and also with external clients. The team is great! Management encouraged us to develop which ever skills we wanted to help us grow in our career. If ever I needed help, all I had to do was ask. The chance to travel: I got to go abroad and to many places with in the US! Great company!! Work hard and you will be recognized. Easy to get promoted. Only reason I left was because my boyfriend was relocated and I couldn't work remotely.

    Cons

    It got a bit administrative at times: granting access, taking notes during meetings, etc. but it was good to get the experience. Some projects are very large and can be very demanding. Nothing a good attitude and communication can't fix.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!!
