Nice place to work with high quality managers
Solution Architect/Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Malvern, PADecember 13, 2018
Work days are productive with quality colleagues. The people are nice and willing to assist with issues. The culture is generally positive but at times work becomes very repetitive. Managers are excellent. Career advancement is widely opened and expressed.
Pros
Weekly events in the office
Cons
Compensation could be better

Over all good company
Physical Security Specialist (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MODecember 13, 2018
The company as a whole is good, however the Security Department is treated diferently than most other associates. Normal work days are easy to deal with and low stress. Every aspect of the company is computer oriented, every employee is issued a laptop.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
Private sector politics

Great for new college grads, not professionals
Consultant (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MODecember 10, 2018
Cerner is a good place to start your career, but not the best to stay at long term. Most associates leave after 2 - 5 years of service due to the company demands and the ability to make more money somewhere else with less stress. There are some advancement opportunities, but only if you live in Kansas City. The company treats there employees outside of Kansas City and their tenured employees very poorly. Upper Level and Middle Management are also poor in defining a strategy and executing it. They change plans constantly, often times not for the better and never with the people they are affecting in mind. They have decent benefits, but again don't treat their associates very well in the long term. This is a company to use to get experience and leave before they drive you into the ground.

good ideas, bad execution
Senior Engagement Owner (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MODecember 10, 2018
Expectation of project turn around is unrelastic wiht solutions not finished, developing as you go with clients asking why and your executives in KC not backing you up and often under cutting project leadership.
Pros
Unlimited PTO
Cons
zero work life balance, no long term vision to resolve issues

Good Starter Job
SR. INTEGRATED TECHNOLOGIES CONSULTANT (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MODecember 7, 2018
Good starter job for pay. However, often work 60+ hours a week and salary is way below what it should be. Company thinks as consultants are easily replaceable.

Long hours and low pay
SOFTWARE ENGINEER INTERN (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, KSDecember 7, 2018
Many of the engineers that work for this company use it as a launch pad to go somewhere else. Cerner knows this and acts accordingly. Prepare to work more than 40 hours on some teams within this company. Great place to start a career, if you are young and newly graduated.

Decent Entry-Level Job
Consultant (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MODecember 7, 2018
Good healthcare IT company headquartered in an underrated city, Kansas City.

Pros: decent compensation, team-based with lots of facilities and teams, travel opportunities and benefits are great.

Cons: Travel exhaustion (in certain roles), lack of structure, often caters to clients at the expense of employees, below average company culture.

Job Culture
Stressful and lack of support
Solution Analyst (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, KSDecember 7, 2018
Cerner has a great reputation and benefits, and the pay is good for the Kansas City market, but be prepared to drink the Kool Aid, cause what they offer isn't free. The amount of information that they expect you to know is ridiculous, then throw you on the phones with little or no support. It's stressful. It's impossible to handle all the information necessary to perform your job successfully, and the culture is for 20 somethings ... there isn't much room for people over 40 unless you've been there forever and aged into the job. Lots of Bros and Cheerleaders and Basics. If you like to follow the leader and drink from the hose, this is the place for you. Otherwise, be prepared to hate your job every day.
Pros
Money and benefits
Cons
Soul-crushing stress, and destruction of individuality.

Ever changing work environment
Senior Medical Assistant (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PADecember 6, 2018
Cerner offers a lot of great opportunity for Associates at the world head quarters campus. I work at a satellite site and it is very difficult to get support tech when there are issues. Support gives you the run around on the phone and it almost impossible to complete tasks with computer issues regularly.
The most enjoyable part of my job is interacting with the clients. The diversity in personalities and different ethnic backgrounds is always educational.

Be prepared to put in a lot of overtime and not get paid for it
Associate Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MODecember 6, 2018
After 5 months my manager gave me "the talk" which was that we were expected to put in 48 hours a week minimum. The general culture here is that you put in the most hours you possibly can, and if you're getting all of your work done in less than 48 hours/week, then you need more work.

Great Company to Work at and Grow; Compensation Could Be Better
Solution Designer, Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MODecember 6, 2018
Cerner is a great company with a focused vision for the future of healthcare to benefit both its clients and the patients they serve. This is a good company at which to start your career. There is a bit of a gap between junior employees and senior management. There is room for advancement and competition for such advancement is strong due to the limited number of positions. As there have been several voluntary separation packages offered by Cerner over the past few years, this may have created more space for employees to experience growth in their career. Cerner tends to hire directly from college for many of its positions, which helps them keep talent costs low. Experienced candidates may find trouble being considered for some positions. Cerner tends to offer lower pay for many positions relative to competitors in the industry, so long-tenured associates are likely to be a thing of the past.
Pros
Cerner offers many on campus perks such as onsite gyms and daycare.
Cons
Perks are geared toward associates situated on the main campus, Satellite offices do not offer the same or equivalent perks.

Misleading
Patient Accounts Specialist (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MODecember 5, 2018
I was told that certain options was giving to my position and once in the door those options was not given. I feel that the recruiters mislead you to get more recruites.

Engagement Owner (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MODecember 4, 2018
Be ready to work 65-70 hours a week and constant consulting reorganization. Whether you are on the road or at in the office/home you will be required to work at least 70 hours/week in the consulting organization.

I would not recommend anyone with a family/kids to work at Cerner

Independent Contractor
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MODecember 4, 2018
I actually was an independent contractor for Cerner. They are a well-established company. Typically I would receive contracts from third party, and would go in and train.

Cerner is a great place to work. They encourage community involvement, good health, career development while offering decent benefits. Depending what campus location you are at you also enjoy ergonomic desk spaces, pool, and a daycare.

Meat grinder
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, MONovember 27, 2018
Cerner was a great experience, but it was a real meat grind of a work environment. The had a very high turn over in personnel and did not do a very good job of taking care of their employees.
