      -Great way to introduce yourself into an amazing and high paying field -There are a TON of extremely intelligent people working for Cerner. Find a mentor, start leeching and then get out after 3 years. -Network, network, network -Great, young working environment. We have joked that the company is actually a modeling agency in disguise (Miss Kansas USA 2013 works at Cerner!) -"independent" and self directing folks will love it here. Little direction, tons to learn.


      -little direction: like another reviewer posted, Cerner is an IT company so EVERYTHING is online. It is almost impossible to find anything. You literally have a learning curve to their 'uCern' and wiki pages. Their search algorithm seems like it was written 100 BC. Sharepoint is terrible. There really isn't a structure to any type of training (there is a very basic outline, but absolutely nothing in depth). - your knowledge base is determined by the number of clients/type of clients you have -promotions are based on how long you have been there and have almost nothing to do with your ability. They also have to do with what team you are someone who started at the same time as you who knows absolutely nothing could get a 20k pay raise while your still making nothing -pay is awful compared to the industry standard. They just lowered the standard pay as of this year as well because it was 'above the industry standard' which is bogus -The work life balance is completely determined by the team your on and the position you are in. In terms of consulting, there is currently (as of may 2015) an entire corporate restructuring in the consulting one in consulting agree's with this and it's going to be an epic fail. I'm not entirely positive on all of the details, but basically you are going to have build monkeys (delivery consultants) and then the 'architects' that travel to the client sites. This is also going to be determinant based on how much an associate wants to travel. -You aren't fully vested until 5 years -You get so sick and tired of meeting other Cerner employees at the bars

        - Good opportunity for recent grads to get some in-field experience - Skills learned can transfer over no matter the department you're placed in - Good health benefits - Relocation package offered - Fair amount of chances to connect with fellow & likeminded TSAs during training, who will likely be put on teams different than yours - There are goodhearted clients who you genuinely want to help


        - Aside from learning the Cerner ticketing system and Cerner in-company resources, 2 week TSA training felt useless as we hardly learned how to prioritize the types of issues and manner of software we will use once we're put on a team - Work culture you experience will highly depend on the department you're chosen for, so you will never know what your day-to-day will be like until it is too late - Some teams are severely understaffed compared to others, putting advanced workload on your table with no one able to make time to assist/guide you - Corporate hierarchy is extremely apparent; work/life balance for technical solutions employees is unpredictable and only gets worse the higher up you go - You will encounter some clients with grudges and gripes held from the previous employee who they worked with - The opposite applies as well; some clients will hold you to a standard regardless of the length of time you've worked with them or Cerner, expecting you to have an answer for anything and everything as an associate employee

      Hello, does anyone know of Susan Riedel because she is my hiring manager and said I received the position although has not responded in a day. Is she employed at this company or is this a job scam?



      hey guys, i’m an early career professional and I recently interviewed for an entry level role in procurement. is it a red flag if it was hinted / mentioned a few times during the interviews that the role will be stressful? 🥲 I haven’t done much interviewing as I’m pretty fresh in my career so for them to explicitly mention it will be stressful was a first
