    Consulting firm with no direction that continues to anger clients and employees. Greed is never a good thing.

    Former Employee - Senior Operations Lead

    I worked at Accretive Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good salary, learn a ton in excel, get to be a "consultant" for a bit and learn that lifestyle.

    Cons

    Terrible company communication, management, leadership. Selfish company concerned about short term profits which is evident in the fact that no hospitals resign agreements. Company promises bonus and doesn't deliver.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to manage revenue before becoming a revenue management consulting firm. Get listed on the stock exchange again.

    I worked at Accretive Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The view from the 27th floor was truly beautiful. There were some great people that worked there. There was beer on Friday afternoons.

    Cons

    This company was all about chewing up and spitting out every thing that it came into contact with employees, client, etc. There was no QA for there product, no SOX compliance, no ability to scale their toolset. Everyone in IT wanted to be the hero so no one wanted to collaborate.

    Hell!!!!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Accretive Health

    Pros

    There are no pro's... This is hands down the worst work experience I've EVER had!!!!! Everyday I look for something, anything else to do.

    Cons

    Managers are not knowledgeable, but consistently make the worst decisions. There is ZERO opportunity for personal or professional growth. It's difficult to grow because no one knows anything to teach you. No communication, organization, or accountability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the job. Know more than how to read and construct excel documents. Listen and react appropriately.

    Pros

    If you need a job

    Cons

    Mary was a tyrant. Steve has a Texas sized ego. If asked your opinion by leadership, be sure to just repeat their opinion or be prepared to be penalized. Huge discrepancies in pay. Do nothing, get paid a ton.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward those loyal and productive instead of friends.

    I worked at Accretive Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    if you like micromanaging at its worst

    Cons

    everything, management in Kalamazoo sucks if new CEO really wants to make a difference he needs to come stay there for awhile

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Steve needs to work in Kalamazoo and see all the discrimination and micromanaging and favoritism first hand, he needs to see that even though he put in place a great employee retention program, Kalamazoo managers are single handily trying to destroy it buy firing anyone that has over 3 years exp, because they can not figure out how to cover any 5 week vacation/sick time. Everything in Kalamazoo is a "case by case" or " managements discretion" whether if follows company hand book or not, whats the point of handbook, if mgmt can change it to whatever they want it to say??????

    Former Employee - PBS Representative in Southfield, MI

    I worked at Accretive Health as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    It was an opportunity to return to work after a three year medical leave.

    Cons

    Absolutely no training. Individuals are at the mercy of the staff at whatever hospital you're assigned to. After two years of service I was layed off after they hired three new employees. Moving on to a much better opportunity! Also they must have a policy to keep employees as contingent staff to save on helathcare cost. As well as not allowing the assigned facility to hire you as a part of their facility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee relations need a great deal of improvement!

    I worked at Accretive Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary
    Depending on the client/site you can have amazing managers.

    Cons

    HR at Corp is awful. They have no clue what is going on out at the sites. Promotions are only given once a year. (If you start in June you have to wait 1.5 years to even have a chance at a promotion).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shed everyone related to the start of the company to save it. Create a more stable growth platform and give better support to your sites with increasing IT resources.
