    I worked at Cerner full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1. In an attractive domain , Healthcare
    2. Reasonable compensation
    3. Plenty of learning resources

    Cons

    I have great respect for the kind of work this company does. But Cerner India is not Cerner US.

    1. Quality of work - Working here for 2 years can make you useless to every other company.
    2. Deteriorating Quality of India Associates - Overpaid people with minimum skill set rarely leave . These people are useful to the company for the simple fact that they acquire "Cerner skills" which is nothing but set of process that you have to do over and over again. Really sad with this strategy of the parent company.
    3. Company within the company- I recently know of an instance when a so called long timer recruited a dumb BPO guy as "architect" into his team. These kind of personal interests happen all the time There is a group of long timers who have survived and will survive with no talent.
    4. Great Indian strategy -Majority of the good people recruited here are into the Senior Engineer level. Reasonable compensation and the architect tag are the baits. For a senior engineer the next level is architect .. As soon as you are an SE you think how it is easy to be an architect looking at so many dumb people around bearing the title architects. All of the laterals will say "Just for the title" and the cliche "I can use this title else where since how would they know the quality of work i am doing here" . Truth is for none of them it happens. The existing architects are dumb heads but they certainly know how to save their jobs. They get all technical data entry work to be done by the lateral "Senior Engineers in the team . All pure data entry jobs go to interns. while they Google magazine material and do FB in office .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop the title Software Architect in Cerner India. That title has a meaning in IT World We have no work that requires a person with this title. So many dumb heads with this title is the worst advertisement you can give for the brand else where.
