Wonderful work-life balance environment and plenty of opportunities to learn
software engineer (Former Employee), Bangalore, IndiaFebruary 1, 2014
Pros: work-life balance
Cons: health care
A place of opportunities to learn new things. Being an health care industry, working towards the health of people is one of the most challenging task. The most enjoyable part of the job is to be a part of the software development and support team, whose software is being used by doctors in hospitals in the entire country.

Accounts Payable Specialist (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: team monthly social gatherings, hard working team members
Cons: difficult to take breaks/lunches, entry level pay is not very high
Cerner expects hard workers to perform their tasks without complaint. There are a lot of benefits to performing your job correctly, and lazy workers will get asked to change their routine to include actually working. The duties are challenging at first, and then become routine.

MEDICAL BILLING SPECIALIST (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: connectlive, ucern, ucern connect, the cafeteria, the environment, the cerner vision
Cons: some of the processes that team leads have towards their teams.
I completed an 8 week 'medical billing' training course within the company. I learned all the ins and outs from calling insurance companies to filing an appeal on a claim. Even being there about a year, I was still gaining new information every day. Working at Cerner takes someone with great attention to detail and someone who is flexible. The business – more... office services (medical billing) department within Cerner is always changing due to new rules, regulations, health laws, and the new ICD-10 coding that will present itself October of this year. There are 200+ medical billers in the office so there were definitely a mix of personalities, I found it easy to work with my coworkers. The hardest part of the job was being someone with no medical billing experience starting out to sitting in the driver seat after just 8 weeks, there was so much to learn and process; even after training. – less

I would not take this opportunity again.
Velocity Analyst (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJanuary 11, 2014
Cons: lack of lunch time and meetings all day, everyday.
Be aware that if you have a degree and want to pursue a career in a specific area it will not happen at Cerner. Especially if you go through the Velocity Analyst program. Though they tell you that you can have a say in where you are placed, that is false. Everything is based on a business need and you can't do anything about it. They will tell you anything – more... to get you to work there.

The program is a big disappointment and I would not recommend it to anyone who wants to pursue a career or has a dream of where they want their career to go. – less

Was not for me...
Business Analyst (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJanuary 7, 2014
Pros: looks good on a resume
Cons: typical corporate work environment
If you are a "company man" looking for a place to spend your whole career this could be the place for you. The company is a leader in an ever growing space and they seem to always be launching new initiatives around the globe. If you come in and work hard you should enjoy a stable, long term career.

That being said, this is a stereotypical corporation. – more... They hire a lot of young people which is great if you are looking to make new friends, but high school/college drama finds its way into the workplace far too often. You are required to work long hours for little recognition and it is widely known that if you want to advance you either have to leave and come back or work 70 hours per week. – less

Horrible Place to work
MEDICAL BILLING SPECIALIST (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJanuary 6, 2014
Management expectations are too high based on work volume & staff resources. They use inexperienced staff to work on accounts instead of hiring employees that have background & skills. Work atmosphere is the same as a high school. Popular people get all advancement opportunities

Innovative Company
Apprentice - Web Development (Former Employee), Kansas City, MONovember 19, 2013
Pros: good place to start a career.
Cons: poor managers
Cerner is one of the leaders in the health care information technology industry and has developed a number of innovations related to data capture and electronic medical records. It is a good place to start a career, but not a place to be long term. I enjoyed learning new technologies and the software development process. The challenge I had was grasping – more... all the new technologies within a short period of time, but despite the challenge, I still enjoyed my job. However, having incompetent managers who lacked management and interpersonal skills, and the consistent ambiguity did not make my job fun any more. – less

Great company to work for
Delivery Consultant (Former Employee), Kansas City, MONovember 10, 2013
Pros: felxible schedule, work from home when needed, healthy company
Cons: constant changes, long days, travel
Life and work balance is biggest challenge. Most positions require travel. This aspect is great, but can be challenge if you have a family. Co-workers are average to work with. Most keep to themselves and collaborate only when needed. If you prefer this type of environment it works out well. The most enjoyable part of the job was supporting clients – more... with their needs. The hardest was keeping up with management changes. The person you report to changes often. – less

good first job
Senior Analyst (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOOctober 8, 2013
Cerner is a good first job. Great training off the bat and high level of responsibility. Advancement is difficult for the first few years and raises are about at industry averages despite the enormous growth of the company.

Don't expect to make a fortune working here, but if you want to work somewhere that helps people and takes their work very seriously. – more... this might be the place for you. – less

It is a hard-working environment, but with lots of amenities, – more... such as an on-site recreation center, pharmacy, clinic, and daycare. – less
