    I have been working at Accretive Health full-time (more than 3 years)


    I work with a lot of great people and enjoy the non-profit opportunities. I find the work interesting as things change a lot. Enjoy working with customers and designing solutions. Exciting to see the company get back on track after a year+ of distractions.


    Experience and job satisfaction varies greatly by the job and supervisor. Although HR remains fairly poor, the company has a lot of bright people. Some managers are difficult to work for. Compensation is okay, but should be better for the amount of work. Promotions can be hard to get as everyone seems to apply for each position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to replace poor managers with qualified people. Massive improvement over the past year in many areas. Nice job on IT upgrades and growth; now focus on HR so we can consistently bring in the people we need and give everyone the same, positive, experience.
