    They are respectful and treat people well. The salary and benefits are great, too!

    Day to day communication with remote workers can be an obstacle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. You seem to be making the right moves, and I'd follow that Dell guy anywhere.

    Career advancment seems to be difficult even based on past and current experiences.

    Best Company to grow professionally while making a difference in the world of healthcare!

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Accretive Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - World-class leadership team committed to 'transform' the world of healthcare in the US.
    - Sky is the limit - being a relatively young company, there are plenty of great opportunities in multiple areas.
    - Formal focus on cutting edge leadership practices: Inverted Pyramid (org chart); Servant Leadership; Self-organizing, High Performance, Agile Teams.

    Cons

    - Personally, I don't see any 'cons' here :)
    - But, I can guess some non-traditional, innovative, entrepreneurial, practices may be perceived "difficult" by traditional thinkers.
    - Being a young company that has grown so fast in such a short time frame, you will see some 'informality' in certain areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Frankly, I am here mainly because of the excellent senior leadership team, their vision, and visible commitment to make a "real difference" in the world of healthcare. My advice would be to keep relentlessly focusing on achieving the Healthcare Triple Aim - High Quality Healthcare experience for individual patients and Improved Population Health, at Lower Costs.

    Pros

    Culture promotes self direction and innovation. Little micro-management on Operations side.

    Cons

    Company is riddled with public relations issues. While they are not completey meritted, they affect morale and create concern for future compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create concrete growth structure with absolute bonus recogition metrics.

    I have been working at Accretive Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    No where else will you find the opportunity to take on so much responsibility at such an early point in your career. Management experience is key in career growth and to have an understanding and an opportunity to manage in a number of ways has been essential to my progression and a professional.

    More and more stock is being put into growth of talent and leadership. Executives are no longer satisfied with orientation and in field training (this takes place), but in depth learning and training in a classroom and organized setting is taking place and employees are flourishing.

    The career acceleration has been flattering and more than acceptable. I personally have been recognized a number of ways for my hard work and commitment. Each time makes me grateful for my managers who recognize me and for senior leaders for asking for such recommendations to highlight. If you work hard, collaborate well, and get results, there is no way not to be recognized in this company (which is a benefit of how the feedback loops work).

    There has been a clear effort to provide clear and precise feedback in a method that is welcoming and constructive.

    Cons

    Traveler location could be better. There are folks that travel from longer locations (based on need) when they could be placed closer.

    Current Employee - Operations Lead in Chicago, IL

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

    Pros

    1. Flat corporate structure allowing for project ownership & exposure to senior leadership early on in your career
    2. Results based promotional track allowing for hard working individuals to excel quickly to higher levels
    3. Continuous expansion into new lines of services providing employees with wide-ranging opportunities in terms of career track and professional development

    Cons

    1. Results based promotional track allowing for hard working individuals to excel quickly to higher levels: If you are not a hardworking, self-motivated, and effective work driver this company will leave you in the dust. If thats the case, Accretive Health is probably not for you. No results, no promotion; that’s the bottom line.

    Pros

    Fast growing company with an excellant opportunity for advancement. Lots of very bright people to work with. Industry trends and industry leadership in revenue cycle will continue strong growth for a long time.

    Cons

    Company subject to government review which makes big swings stock options. Employees can expect a lot of travel (which is good and bad).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to educate governmental officials on the industry. Maintain a strong financial investment in IT.

    Current Employee - Vice President in Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Vice President in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Accretive Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pros

    1) For those who take responsibility for their results and career, there are practically unlimited opportunities for personal and professional growth.

    2) I gain tremendous satisfaction in being part of a team that is improving healthcare in the face of strong headwinds and a general lack of awareness of the challenges that providers face!

    3) I see a strong link between my effort, my results, and my resulting compensation...

    Cons

    Cons

    1) Opportunities for personal growth are limited by your own imagination, work ethic and willingness to take responsibility for your own happiness.

    2) This is not your father's Fortune 100 company...internal and external processes are under constant development

    3) This is not your typical Silicon Valley start-up either...the pressure to market a vision of the future is muted by the desire to deliver results, real value, for our customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Senior Management

    Don't change the focus on value delivered to our customers and clients...even while we enhance and grow our internal processes, controls and operating rhythms.
