    I worked at Cerner full-time

    Pros

    Good package. Good perks. No need to use your brain. All you need to get this job is to know how to click your mouse. Period

    Cons

    Cerner rips off freshers by giving so called a great package to start with. The skills you learn here are so bad that even a 10th std kid can do a better job. All you need to do is to type and to click your mouse on various windows. Once you stick here, its inevitable to leave this company because no one in the current market can recognize your typing/mouse clicking skills. This is definitely a job for the housewives.

    It's a job.

    I have been working at Cerner

    Pros

    It's a job. I'm employed.

    Cons

    If you have a two year degree you are locked in for three solid years at the same level with no opportunity to climb the ladder even when you're performing as well as and doing the same job as the people with four year degrees.
