Clinical Strategist
#1 as an International Leader (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOAugust 9, 2014
Pros: travel miles
Cons: not enough job life balance
Travel almost every week to different client sites. I learned about consultative partnering, influence model, all the different solutions at Cerner EHR, all aspects of Meaningful Use and ICD-10. As Clinical Strategist we typically worked directly with the clients and more project management and change management. The hardest part of the job was trying to get the client to move forward with change management and follow a standardized model. I do enjoy working with all the different team members involved in a project for Cerner and enjoyed building relationships with the clients and seeing a successful conversion.

Cons: less salary
Good experience with good people around. Uses lot of technologies which are in good demand in market but at the same time they have their own technologies which are boring and of no use outside Cerner.

Cerner is a fun place to work in. It lets you grow technically as well.
Software Engineer (Current Employee), Kansas City, MissouriJuly 23, 2014
The projects follow agile development, with scrums in the morning and few meetings to discuss upcoming projects.

Manager was very friendly and technically sound.

Co-workers were fun to work with.

Hardest part of the job was to find out the fix for bugs and code the fix.

Enjoyable part of the job was working as a team

Delivery Consultant (Former Employee), Kansas CityJuly 1, 2014
Pros: flexibility, no micromanagement
Cerner was the first full time job I had out of college and needless to say it was a fantastic experience. The work/life balance was very ideal, work hours were extremely flexible, and the culture of the company was nothing short of amazing. Great people and meaningful work.

Big corporation with a professional and competitive work environment
Delivery Consultant (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOJune 23, 2014
The life of a Cerner Consultant can really vary depending on what solution team and clients you are placed on. There is a lot of valuable experience to be gained, such as traveling and working face to face with clients. Overall, the company is very young and creates a competitive and interactive work environment. They offer great benefits and opportunities for advancement and transitioning between roles.

Poor training, poor management, poor results.
Implementation Consultant (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOJune 23, 2014
Pros: free clinic healthcare
Cons: pretty rubbish job
I don't think I've ever met more than three people who have enjoyed working at Cerner. Between the 80%+ travel, very low pay for the industry, minimal training, and negative corporate culture- there is not a lot to recommend about working at Cerner. A good name, but not necessarily a good job.

Excellent job culture and gaining work experiece
System Engineer (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOJune 21, 2014
Pros: great exposure to new technologies, healthcare it, free in house clinic and gym. opportunist for growth
Cons: long hours, huge learning curve, challenging work load
Cerner and CernerWorks ClientOps specifically, is a great company that provides countless opportunist for growth and experience. The job does require a very large learning curve and can be a lot to take in as there are hundreds of applications and technology solutions being used that one needs to become familiar with and manage. Although it may seem daunting at first, there are always people willing to assist and transfer knowledge to help one become more knowledgeable regarding these solutions and applications.

A typical day at work consists of managing service request from clients and other Cerner departments to troubleshoot system and application issues, loading packages of new code and components, and implementing configurations changes. This is coupled with working on reactive and proactive production system optimization and management as well as new project implementations and system upgrades.

Cerner provides a great work environment and management does a great job of delegating work and assisting with issues while not micromanaging. Work load can often times be very heavy and will require overtime, evening, and sometimes late night work sessions.

The hardest part of the job is the scope and variety of solutions that need to be learned and understood even from a high level prospective. These solutions are always ever changing and upgrading, so work process change and one is always learning and adapting within the role. As challenging as this can be, it also provides a platform where one is always being exposed to new things and is always learning, growing, and expanding their technology skill set. This promotes a challenging and rewarding experience.
