    Current Employee - Software Engineering Intern II in Kansas City, MO (US)

    I have been working at Cerner as an intern for more than a year

    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.

    I worked at Cerner as an intern

    Pros

    Cerner is a dynamic company with many different things going on at once. Great place if you want to learn and are a quick study.

    Cons

    Depending on the solution they place you with, you could be doing a LOT more travel than they tell you. The job frequently has obligations outside of the work day.

    I worked at Cerner full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Not one, simply the worst! I quit after my third month. They will make you work at least 65 hours a week, no work life balance at all. Tasks are timed and just about impossible to accomplish within the given time frame.

    I can not recommend this company to anyone and I strongly advise to look somewhere else.

    Cons

    Everything, long hours, disorganization at its best, nasty managers, unpleasant and unhappy co workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, their heads are swollen
