    I have been working at Cerner full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nothing good to say. Few colleagues were good.

    Cons

    The management has lot of politics and HR is horrible.
    The project are 30 years old. Used old technology and proprietary tools used no exposure for new technology
    The work is only fixing bugs and testing no progress in technical area.
    Work pressure is very high. no learning, No training on any technology and KT
     Indian employees are treated like slaves, and never think of work life balance at all.
    Important thing is, the CTC will be high, but take home will be very less. So advise is ask for better gross income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Egoistic Management should Value associates.
