Cerner lifestyle
Consultant (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MOJuly 31, 2016
Cerner is great in the sense you have job security however it lacks everything else. Management as not actively engaged in day to day of the company. Constant resourcing shortages i.e. not enough team members to work across all projects.

Loved seeing patient care first hand in hospitals. Very cool.

Work hard play hard atmosphere with opportunity for growth
Software Consultant (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MOJuly 30, 2016
Great opportunities for young professionals- however, when hired, you had very little say in the area in which you would be working. Large groups of new hires would complete a lengthy generic training program for about 2 months and then divided onto random teams. The opportunities for advancement early on was definitely a plus but the stressful work environment and long hours were tough.
Pros
benefits, career advancement
Cons
no work life balance

Ideal Large Corporation for New College Grads
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MOJuly 29, 2016
Cerner offers software professionals with many good opportunities to learn and grow.
It is especially a good place for new graduates, straight out of college. Be aware that if you want to be an engineer or software tester for a long period of time, Cerner may not be the best choice.
They like to cycle through college grads, as they can pay them less.
If you don't plan to move into management, plan on a 3-5 stint here.
Pros
Good tech, good benefits, nice campuses
Cons
Not ideal for a career developer, Burn-out is common

Cerner is a great place to work
Software Engineer Intern (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MOJune 22, 2016
As a software engineering intern, I was able to work on a product that was in the hands of actual clients. The code that I wrote effected doctors and patients alike, and that was powerful to me. I learned a lot about front- and back-end web application development.

Great Company, Not enough growth for my liking
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Malvern, PAJune 21, 2016
Great company! Good, talented people work there.

Very vague with guiding associates to new career paths. I know they exist, but it is difficult to get management to direct your efforts so you can succeed and to advance your career.

Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MOJune 10, 2016
This is an amazing company to work for. The management is very knowledgeable and pay raises happen every year as long your review is good.

The company sends you on multiple training and ensures that you grow as an individual.

Some days are busier than other, but that is life at any company.

Great team and coworkers
Cons
Some days can get really hectic

Engagement Leader (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MOJune 8, 2016
Cerner is a great place to work for if you are solely looking for opportunity for advancement in your career. If you stay more than 2.5 years you will make a good amount of money ... BUT ... this comes at a price (sacrifice) ... a life. But at the end of the day, life is all about priorities.
Pros
Job Security
Cons
Horrible work/life balance

Average work week was 40-45 hours. I learned unit testing and how to develop code on a team using an agile approach. Good mentor-ship from senior developers and fun atmosphere. Hardest part of the job was meeting managers vague standards.
