    Pros

    First of all Healthcare is a very good and stable domain. You will get a great exposure to Healthcare domain. Once you enter cerner, there is definitely a job security. You get promotions easily if you are a decent performer. Cerner offers you a Good CTC which has some good benefits. and lastly you get a good work environment. If you are into Testing, you have life here and you can skip reading cons part below :)

    Cons

    You get a good CTC, but, you will be shocked to see the in-hand amount. So, better ask for Gross than CTC before joining. Cerner believes in long working hours (120%) but not in efficiency. So, you see people usually working late night here. The work in India is Maintenance. So, you have very little coding. Hence, developers also have to do testing. In Cerner, for a developer there is only 20% of coding and 80% testing is there. So, if you fix one line of code, you have to do BlackBox testing yourself in 4-8 pipelines. And before you finish, there will be many tasks in your bucket. So, you will have no time to think of any other thing or learn something new.

    So, if you think you want to settle down and do not want to change the company again, go to Cerner. Because once you enter, it is hard to find new company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try to understand what an employee needs. There are lot of talents who are input wrong work. So, do something to reduce the attrition rate.

    Pros

    -Good place to learn Healthcare IT
    -Good Appraisals if you are ready to put your blood in your work. In short you can expect 25 - 30% hikes if you do GREAT.

    Cons

    -No worklife balance.
    -Too much work pressure if you want good growth and you don't get to invest time in self improvement/ updating your technical skills.
    -Incompetent Architects in India generally with a few exceptions
    -Average intellect of teams
    -No cafeteria despite long work hour expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -They should try to create an environment where employees work life balance is respected.

    Pros

    Cerner is one of the best place to work because of the work environment what it provides for its employees. Being a health care giant Cerner provides different kind of benefits for its employees including attractive insurance packages to the employees and their families. It provides a very flexible work timings to the Employees. The Cerner management hierarchy was built very well.
    People on the top are very much approachable.

    Cons

    Cerner attracts the young talent from different colleges with much higher packages compared to the market standards. But they have high competition from other companies while hiring the senior or experienced resources from the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One of the main concern what i have about Cerner is about its branding. Cerner India is not very well known in the market except to those who people who come from a health care background. Cerner has very well built hierarchy in the top management. Have to take some efforts to attract the young talent from the market which is highly competitive.
