    Pros

    It's great to be owned by an American company again, and one that has its entire focus on Healthcare Information Technology.

    Cons

    My department is dysfunctional and disorganized prior to the purchase of Siemens Medical, and it is still that way so far under Cerner.

    Pros

    -Great Management(usually)
    -Great compensation out of college
    --Great experience and resume builder

    Cons

    --It's safe to say, "Cerner picks its winners". Typically you'll see the same set of individuals promoted every 2 years from one role to the next. Often I find many individuals who have stayed in their roles many many years because they're just not selected as "winners" early on.
    --You won't be challenged to "think outside the box much". You're placed in a role with solid role description and responsibilities. Their is a process you must follow and not much room to deviate from the process. If you ask management to do so, they're risking their political capital to try to change a process that might be long-standing etc.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage people to be more entrepreneurial and give them the ability to think "outside the box".
