    I have been working at Cerner full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers
    Consistently challenged to learn more and excel
    No day is the same

    Cons

    There are times where you have to spread your wings and fly before you feel you are ready. This can be good or bad, just depends on the situation, but it does cause a bit of anxiety/stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage your reports to attend training sessions either internally or externally. The information absorbed and the networking opportunity is invaluable.

    Pros

    Cerner is a great company to work for. Over the years they have been very innovative and have changed with the market demands - somethings a bit late and other times on track. Their client and associate learning services offerings have come a long ways and are now very sophisticated and provide great value for investment.

    Cons

    It is very hard to get a Director promotion outside of living in Kansas City.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose the corporate culture by expanding too fast. Make sure that Siemens acquisition is done with some foresight.

    Pros

    Everyone I've met has been very supportive and accommodating. I can call up any of my co-workers with a question and they would be willing to help. My manager is outstanding and works hard to coach me in advancing my career.

    Cons

    You have to teach yourself a lot. Training is provided, but there is so much more that you need to know. The resources are out there, but you must make the effort and take the time to find them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are doing the right thing. I have seen great strides in the availability of resources and support. I know we are moving in the right direction.
