A corporation that requires complete compliance to their way of life
Medical Billing Specialist (Former Employee) – North Kansas City, MO – October 26, 2015
This is a good place for those adept in the corporate world. There is no individuality allowed. No job security, you may be on one team one week, another the next week, and another the week after that.
Network Engineer (Current Employee) – KS – September 8, 2015
Cerner is a great place to start your career or to gain experience. You have the opportunity to work with the latest and greatest technology. Cerner can also pay well depending on if you can prove your worth.
Senior Engineers will get frustrated with the low level talent that Cerner brings in. You are expected to be on call 24x7x365 and to answer your phone within 10 minutes. Even if you are not on call they will still call you.
practice manager (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – November 16, 2015
Cerner is a great place to work especially for new graduates. There is a lot of opportunity to grow within the company and experience many aspects of business. They have a great mission and have a huge impact on healthcare today.
Professional (Former Employee) – World Headquarters – September 3, 2015
I was employed with Cerner for five years. In that time, my evaluations exceeded expectations yet my raises totaled 2%. The company does not listen to the "working class", but only believes what the management team reports to them. They have been known to fire people with perfect work records if they don't agree with the management team, even if the idea is ridiculous. The HR department does help when questionable events occur. The HR department sorts through the policies to find a reason to fire those that are not corporate lackeys. If you work for Cerner, you are not allowed to think outside the box or have a life that you call yours.....Cerner OWNS you when you work for them. Worst job I have had in a thirty two year career.
Do not respect employees as humans, just want someone that will never question ANYTHING>
Great Associates/ Great Supervisors who Care about their People
Armed Security Specialist (Current Employee) – Malvern, PA – August 16, 2015
Everyday it's a Honor and Privilege to be able to protect the Associates of Cerner Corporation. My Supervisors are down to earth and what ever I need they are there for me and my CoWorkers. Before I worked at Cerner I worked as a Deputy Sheriff in a small county in Md. Since starting my Career at Cerner it feels like I'm in Heaven.
Solution Manager/Technology Architect (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – October 3, 2015
Cerner is a great place to build you work experience. It is one of the best Health Care IT companies to work for. They are are a global company so there's a good chance you will be able to travel around the world.
Delivery Consultant - Upgrade Center (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – September 23, 2015
Pays very well for recent grads. Unless you dedicate your life to Cerner, you will not make it far. Use it as a job out of college to get application knowledge and experience and then go to a client site where you can make more $$.
Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 29, 2015
Being a System Engineer is like being a doctor but in an IT field. You have to think on your feet, sort through the symptoms, and come up with a diagnosis promptly. This role tremendously empowers me to be agile, take challenges as opportunities and maintain calm while escalating clients’ needs in timely manner. I like the positive pressure of having to make good decisions on the spot and help people instantly using cutting edge technology. I am very good evaluating risk management and accountable for all my actions and their repercussions.
Senior System Engineer (Current Employee) – Kansas City Missouri – August 5, 2015
Poor managers work employees to death, and favoritism inhibits advancement. Archaic techniques for annual raises tends to embitter employees. Management rolls out new policies, regardless of feedback from associates actually tasked with performing the job.
Engagement Leader (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 16, 2015
At Cerner there is not a typical day, many times you will have your day planned out and have to adjust due to additional needs and or requirements that pop up. That is part of what I enjoyed about my job at Cerner. I also enjoyed working directly with clients and having an impact on their ability to meet organizational goals and regulatory requirements.
The most challenging part at Cerner is the work/live balance, in the time I have spent at Cerner there are peaks and valleys in which the workload is minimal vs. overload.
Great place to get your feet in the door and gain experience into the Healthcare IT industry.
