Application Architect (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – June 26, 2017
Like most jobs it depends on what team or people you may end up to if they transfer you to another department - not ask - just transfer you - over all great - new team was not focused on anything but India education
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 22, 2017
Management really doesn't care about their employees. When I started my boss did not even know what my job was and did not make it clear what was expected of me. I basically had to find things to do to stay needed since I really did not have many day to day job duties. To make it worse my boss would assign me a task 30 minutes before the end of the work day which needed to be completed that day. So I would have to stay late simply because my boss waited to tell me something needed to get done when I could have been told at the beginning of the day.
SR. Technical Engagement Leader (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 19, 2017
The day begins with meetings pertaining to client projects, clients roadmapping sessions, eslcations with service requests logged, working with infrastructure on networking setup, team meetings, client calls with internal Executives around sales contracts coming up and hardware constraints. The most enjoyable part is working with the clients and helping through thier vision as an organization.
Manager (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 17, 2017
I've been at Cerner a long time and have had many great experiences. I've reached a point in my life where I am tired of the fast-paced, ever changing, demanding environment and planning to move no to something else. Great place to start a career.
Support Analyst (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – June 14, 2017
Work/life balance can be manageable depending on where you are in the company. My position is a set 9-5 position and I normally do not take work home with me when I leave. The hardest part of the job is the high turnover rate in my area. We are constantly losing and training new people. It's a great way to jump start your career if you are just starting out. Fun, fast-paced environment.
food days, company outings, room to move in the company
not much flexibility, can be demanding when short staffed due to high turnover rate
System Analyst (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 13, 2017
Cerner is a great place to work if you are single with no family or if your spouse works there too. Great pay, benefits, and opportunity unless you are already settled down and have family and/or commitments outside work.
Learning Consultant (Former Employee) – Kansas – June 12, 2017
I didn't mind the job I was doing as a learning consultant, but the travel is insane. home for MAYBE 36 hours at a time. never saw friends or family. it was rough but if you don't mind being gone 24/7, a good position
Production Owner Architect (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 11, 2017
The dress code is laid back, jeans and a work-appropriate T-shirt is OK. Work experiences vary across all the organizations that make up the company as a whole. Some roles are overworked, while others are not, it depends on what your job function is at the company.
It's a great place for people to start their IT career. As long as you apply, what you hopefully learned in college, you will be able to work at Cerner. Management will vary from team to team. There are some micro managers, while other's take a more "hands-off" approach; it just depends on the team you join.
If you are thinking about taking a job at Cerner, be prepared for a face paced environment that changes frequently. HIT is an evolving field of technology, there is no "one size fits all"; the environment is ever changing.
The benefits and compensation are standard. For a single person, the healthcare is affordable. I hear from others with families that it's a little higher than usual, but not terrible. I guess that depends on whether you have a family or not.
Overall, Cerner is a good company to work for. You can, however, get burned out easily depending on where you work within the company.
Work from home, travel opportunities, team outings
Long/after normal business hour work, communication across orgs, sometimes poor drive of other team members
Consulting Analyst (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 11, 2017
You will make lots of friends working at Cerner as everyone is pretty young and new to the company. Every position and team is different, and you don't have a say in what team you are put on so can't really predict beforehand if you are going to be working 60 hours a week with a really difficult project or barely making it to 30 hours bored out of your mind.
Revenue Cycle Analyst (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – May 31, 2017
Good opportunity for new college graduates. This work is very technical as well as analytical. The company maintains a good work environment but be prepared to work and travel a lot and get paid for a regular work week.
