I recently left Cerner after working here for 2 years. This was my first job after college, and I learned a lot. The things I disliked about my experience was first that you feel like just a number. This is a huge company and starting out you don't meet management or have insight into the overall company goals much. Promotions and management follow a bell curve each year which forces managers to rank employees against each other and I was told I would have to "jump" another employee for a raise. This promoted a competitive and hostile work environment that I did not enjoy.
I have learned a lot from Cerner from a learning standpoint. Unfortunately, the environment I am in is extremely negative and with the scholarship help for my Masters, I will have the opportunity to move to another company where I feel much more comfortable. The turnover rate is extremely high here and the promotions are very limited.
