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


    The employees are friendly and helpful. The positions are interesting. It was great to have the ability to work from home or the office.


    The employees were stressed with the increased work load and managed with fear of losing their jobs. The on the job training was very weak and work performance was expected to be perfect. With personnel cutbacks there were increased errors by all staff members in the chain of review documentation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to place the importance on training and use a double check method to decrease errors in production of appeals.
