    Pros

    They have great focus on health and well being of their associates. Competitive pay, and benefits also.

    Cons

    Cerner can be a very demanding place to work. Some roles don't seem to have enough work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Technical Support Analyst in Kansas City, MO (US)

    Pros

    Starting pay is decent. Personal growth, you will learn where you want to go quickly. Ability to move around on different teams if your leadership is supportive.

    Cons

    Big place. Hard to stand out. If leadership sees fit they can deny internal transfers because of "business need". Basically they can give you litter to no explanation and keep you doing something you do not enjoy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more consistent and transparent. Also do a better job recognizing people who work the hardest. Stop being "buddy buddy" with certain associates and take the time to get to know your other employees. If they feel you care about them maybe they won't be afraid to speak up and step outside their shell.

    Pros

    Great company that's taking advantage of a growing Industry. You can change positions after 18 months.

    Everybody is young, smart and good looking (if you're a DC).

    Typically, you can work remotely after a year and a half or 2.

    Cons

    You have to move to Kansa City. Kansas City is not that cool. When you get hired, you have no idea where you will end up. It's luck of the draw.

    It's hard to go out and meet people that aren't Cerner employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of you seem cool. Some of you don't. I do'nt work with management much.

    Pros

    The team I was on was great. We went out to eat every Friday and they were very flexible on hours. From what I have experienced, my team members would work around 45 hour weeks on average. Some of the team would only work the normal 40 though. Overall I enjoyed my work and my environment, especially the in-house clinic and gym.

    Cons

    Starting out it may seem a bit like you have no say on a project. Some engineers are not very concerned with modern programming practice or design and it can become a bit disheartening.

    They should make the existing consultants permanent than hiring freshers into the teams
