    Pros

    Challenging. Once you get to know people, you figure out who the bright and good ones are. Overall, it's a great staff.

    Cons

    Sometimes stressful. Can work a lot at times. That's the same at all jobs though, so it's not a negative towards Cerner

    Pros

    Cerner focuses very heavily on associate development and training. They truly believe anyone with the work ethic will be able to successfully perform any job within the company.

    Cons

    Salary could be more competitive especially for those coming out of college in the "Velocity" program. The raises were good, but we started much lower than other offers that had been offered for accountants at other companies.

    I have been working at Cerner full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I think its good place to work for if you are coming straight out of college. I would recommend working here a few years to gain experience and then move on. I feel like a learned a lot working for this company. Management can be good if you land on the right team.

    Cons

    Overworked and underpaid. I work a lot of late nights and weekends. They lose a lot of talented people because they don't want to pay them fairly for the extra amount of work that they do. Most of the documentation there is horrible. Work plans are always missing steps or outdated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people fairly for the work they do and they might stick around.
