Great place to start your career in IT
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
