Productive place to work
Computer Operator II (Current Employee), Augusta, GAMarch 5, 2015
I work 3rd shift from 11:00PM to 7:00AM, Tuesday through Sunday morning. Run what is called "Cycles" for day-end procedures, while monitoring all systems for failures/issues. Reporting and ensuring corrections of said issues.
At this time I am looking for a day shift job closer to home.

TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT SPECIALIST (Former Employee), Overland Park, KSMarch 1, 2015
Pros: this company is on the cutting edge of advancing healthcare.
Cons: due to the nature of the work environment, the ability to plan and work in advance is not always a viable option.
This company creates solutions that appropriately addresses problem areas in the healthcare system. I appreciated the opportunity to meet and work with healthcare professionals that are compassionate about the services they provide to the patients they care for.

Loved working for Cerner Learned alot about management
Physician Strategist (Former Employee), Easton, PAJanuary 5, 2015
A typical work day included managing over 200 physicians to get them trained and ready to use electronic heath record. Team work and mass cooperation was needed for projects ranging any where from 3-6 months in duration. Co-workers were key in implementation to run smoothly. The hardest part was at times time management if given a tight time line. Most enjoyable was networking and meeting highly educated and talented people form Cerner. Highly recommend working with Cerner

Decent job but poor management
Software Engineer (Current Employee), Kansas City, KSDecember 7, 2014
Pros: decent starting salary, good work experience
Cons: poor managment, terrible training
Working for Cerner isn't too bad and pay well for those right out of college. The main problems are that the company is expanding so quickly that almost no one has proper training, including managers.

Expectations and job responsibilities are so widely varied that you can get a job where you have nothing to do but code random stuff just for fun or one where you're just completely overwhelmed and managers are still yelling at you for not getting enough done. Your experience will completely depend on what team you get placed with. Not the worst place to work if you get a good team, but can be horrible if you get a bad team.

High pressure demand for fast turn around of data received
PRODUCT ANALYSIS SUPERVISOR (Former Employee), Chesapeake, VAOctober 3, 2014
Pros: great leaning experience
Cons: limited training of new staff.
We would scrub clients purchasing data to verify correct descriptions, packaging and pricing. Review all contracts to verify they were getting the best pricing level and investigate item file where contracts weren't being utilized. Management team and co-workers were great to work with. The hardest part of job was meeting turn around time on assignments. My most enjoyable part was working with the Surgical Team on their custom packs and pack utilization.

Professional Services Consultant (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJuly 29, 2014
Pros: job security
Cons: hours, management, compensation, advancement opportunity, culture, bonuses (lack thereof)
Life as a "consultant"...

Your recruiter will make it sound like they care about you and your life outside of prison. They don't. They want warm bodies.

"Management" is a joke, run by those who had nothing better to do than work 70+ hour weeks for the scraps they were paid so they see no reason why you shouldn't do it as well. They aren't the best in class, they are who's leftover when those with half a brain realize there are better opportunities and leave.

That weekend you thought you had? Have your suitcase packed because you'll be on a plane no later than Sunday afternoon.

You get back at 2AM Friday morning after having left on Sunday? Be in the office at 8AM for your worthless mandatory weekly "team" meeting. They're held so management can say it was held with no actual productive outcomes. Your "team" consists of anybody else who hasn't wised up yet so any critical thinking regarding processes and procedures is looked on with disdain. Questioning or criticism is met with swift discipline.

You at least get to leave early because you already put in 60+ hours right? Sure, if 4:30 Friday eve counts as early.

Well, you're at least compensated for all the hard work you put in...right? Ha, I broke down my per hour pay and it hovered between $12-$14/hr (starting salary around $40k-$50k depending on experience and university) my last couple of months. Oh, and that was during the holidays when things were "slow."

To end on a high note, the company is growing so your job is secure...but the slaves on the plantations were guaranteed a field to work in every day as well.

Excel, Excel, Excel with little training
Business Analyst (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: free gym, good looking people
Cons: sink or swim environment
I have worked in a couple different roles and training is a huge miss. The "working instructions" are made by the previous associate and most of the time are very confusing to follow. The expectations are they will show a couple of times and want you to run with project from there. This makes it difficult to build confidence in the work. Team atmosphere, far from it. You are part of a team of 3 to 6 associates but the teams have little overlap in duties. The best way to discribe the team is like in baseball everybody cares about their individual performance but lacks the overall team record part to create unity.
