Company Culture

No loyalty to associated. Culture is work is so you should have in your life

Support from management

Half the mangers have little real life experience

Teamwork

Some established teams from Siemens aquisition are strong but slowly they are filling in with kids out if school that don't work well with older associates

Freedom to work independently

No longer allow work from home

Internal Communication

Lots of rahrah meetings but allot of it is bull.

Attitude towards older colleagues

It's all about the recent grads

Career Development

Only if you are a recent grad

Overall compensation for your work

Good starting pay out of college but even if you work in Pennsylvania, pay scale is based on KC cost of living. Many Malvern employees got pay cuts

Work-Life Balance

They preach balance but there is none. You must log at least 44 hours per week and most cases you work even more.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Allow work from home. Many have done this for years when we were Siemens. If we are expected to work with outsourced employees in India and Romania why not people who are a 20-30 miles away?

What I like about the company

If you are in KC there is a nice gym.

Company Culture

Lacking compassion
Care only about bottom line
Work people to the bone then toss them

Support from management

They act very unsupportive - overworked and don’t care

Teamwork

Barely existent

Freedom to work independently

Mostly micromanaging

Internal Communication

It does not feel like the different departments work for same company. Dog eat dog or unfriendly or those trying to collaborate are drowned out by people who hate their lives with Cerner

Career Development

Not very supportive

Work-Life Balance

They will wear you out if you let them

Job Security

If you work like a dog you can keep your job

Inclusive / Diverse

Straight white males seems to be all that apply
Cerner does hire a lot of women and minorities but the work life balance and all the other items listed above their is a high turnover rate

Suggestions for improvement

  • This company needs to grow up

What I like about the company

Benefits are somewhat decent

What I dislike about the company

Nuff said

Overall compensation for your work

Joined the company early on in career. Later transferred and started doing higher level work but the compensation was not in line with the work I was doing.

Challenging Work

At Cerner, there is never a shortage of work to do. The amount of work that is needed is what you put into it, however, at times I wish we were pushed a little deeper.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make a better effort to keep the compensation in line with the work being performed. Far too much a limiting factor is the standard 5%, etc raise. While this benefits higher level associates, the lower end does not benefit as much.

What I like about the company

Great people, challenging work, company vision is great.

What I dislike about the company

Compensation and siloʻd work environments. Being that it is such a big environment, Iʻm not sure if there is a way around that.
