no work/life balance - overworked, underappreciated
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – February 13, 2019
I was required to work 55 hours per week. I was then asked to work more on the weekends. My PTO decreased from 5 weeks down to 3 weeks when they hired the new CEO, and this was after I had worked there for 5+ years. How a company can take away something that is hard earned after giving them over 5 years of my life is beyond me.I never once received an email telling me thank you or good job in the 5+ years I was there, rather only emails asking for more time, more commitment, more numbers, more work - completely unappreciated. Incredibly stressful environment. No management training is offered, so my manager would communicate changes to us in an email and then say she was too busy to discuss them, which is why she emailed the changes to begin with. Some days, management doesn't even speak to their associates, and then send an email saying they were too busy to engage with us. Very negative, stressful environment - be prepared to only be a number - not a person at Cerner. And not to mention, our entire department has not received a raise in 3 years, and the reason given is that it is an expense year. However we would get an earnings email quarterly that would say how many millions and even billions of dollars had been earned... it is not the company that Neal Patterson broke his back to build. He would be ashamed of what it is today.
