    I have been working at Cerner full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I started at Cerner right out of college and I have found our leadership to be very supportive and empowering to help me learn, grow, and consistently be challenged in my work. They provide great health benefits and have a relaxed work environment.

    Cons

    As deadlines loom, the number of hours you work can increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to lead, in both the health care AND technology industries, to ensure we're cutting edge and never behind the curve.

    Pros

    Pay
    Benefits
    Growing at a rapid rate

    Cons

    The 48 hours a week expected work hours and learning "The Cerner Way"... it is like drinking from a fire hose. ... it hurts until you adjust or break.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a more seemless transition point or process so the 1st day the associate is in their team they can be productive and not be in "Land of the Lost" .... more training on applications configurations and Issue Response (Break/Fix).
