    Pros

    Great office & location
    Niche provider to an industry that will continue to grow whilst others contract
    IP available to employees
    One of the leading providers of software solutions to Health sector
    Financial stability of organisation - longevity in market

    Cons

    Antiquated management structure and systems
    Lack of trust and support within employee groups and between managers and staff
    Relatively inflexible and resistant to constructive criticism
    Work within the specific scope of your role and don't overlap with other position functions - roles become repetitive and churn patterns predictable
    Huge HO costs as a result of over staffing and job creation for MO
    Inconsistent approach to People, Culture and Career development

    Doesn't Recommend

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

    Pros

    1) Kansas city is a cheap place to live. Cerner pays competitive salary compared to other technology companies located in Kansas City.
    2) Good place for new grads to start career but not for experienced professional.

    Cons

    1) Experienced teammates will be mediocre. The only reason they are your seniors is because they have worked there for X amount of years.
    2) Promised projects never get executed not even when specifically mentioned while signing the offer. You`ll be put on a project you have no clue about.
    2) Lack of smart people makes work boring. You dont learn anything related to coding. There is too much stress given on knowing to use Cerner applications than actually implementing programming concepts. Unles you want to work in hospitals as a Cerner product consultant Cerner product knowledge is useless.
    3) CCL is only used in Cerner. It becomes tough to apply for your next job. Dont spend too much time time coding in CCL.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give preference to employees who are smart rather than employees who have worked in the company for longer.
