    I have been working at Accretive Health full-time (More than a year)


    Offers very competitive salaries Solid foundational training and interactive learning program Good place to get exposure to the healthcare industry and the corporate world


    The negative Accretive reputation at different hospitals no longer surprises me, Too many changes in direction and personnel ,company is standing on one leg as the future doesn't look to bright. Upper management does not appreciate lower level staffs work efforts, there is a milk the cow until it's dry attitude. Lack of real leadership and many pointless meetings. Lots of talking but no listening, upper management will only see things their way. Senior leaders seem to undermined and degrade workers while shifting blame to save their own butts. Over the top focus on pleasing hospital c suite

    Advice to Management

    To be successful you need to lose the groupthink mentality. It would useful to communicate more effectively and provide feedback to those you don't see on a regular basis that perform duties at a high level. Get to know your people

    Infrastructure Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Accretive Health (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.


    Contact initially by a recruiter. I had a fairly promising phone screen and was called down for a face-to-face interview. Only one of the two people I was supposed to meet was available (the same person I spoke with on the phone screen) and that one person was completely uninterested in conducting our interview. Huge disappointment and a complete waste of a trip into downtown Chicago.
