    No guidance or training program available

    Operations Lead (Former Employee)

    ProsGet your foot through the door with other companies, learn how hospital revenue cycling works by actually getting involved with the work,

    ConsSome sites do not have a good client relationship and clients will resent you, hires too many young college recruits to save money, no training is offer whatsoever, management does not focus on the team as a whole, no employee engagement activities

    Advice to Senior ManagementWith the new CEO, the company seems to be going down a better path and I have high hopes now. Division heads: Pay attention to your employees!!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsThis is a great place to learn about revenue cycle as the company is very much hands on with the improvement every client's revenue cycle.

    ConsAccretive needs to significantly improve its promotion process.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSetup clear metrics for people to be promoted so there is an incentive to stay.

    Unpleasant

    PBS Representative (Former Employee)
    Southfield, MI

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

    ConsAbsolutely 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 Senior ManagementEmployee relations need a great deal of improvement!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Accretive Health, A Decent Place to Grow

    Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexibility, independence, marginal career development programs, ability to shine based on work ethic/intelligence/motivation

    ConsNon-competitive pay compared to competitors in the industry, stock awards are trash due to stock price.
    Results are never good enough for Leadership. Gain-share model means that strong performance is often overlooked.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    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 Senior Management- 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    AH is a young company that is fun and takes care of its employees

    Senior Operations Lead (Current Employee)
    Fort Lauderdale, FL

    Prosfun and energetic leadership. They have a mentorship program that has been very beneficial to professional development.

    Conslocations and travel can be difficult. Some locations are in high cost of living areas

    Advice to Senior Managementneed a more inclusive revenue cycle development training to keep up with current trends. A quarterly webinar would be beneficial.

    Negative and toxic environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe pay was very good (above average) and the vacation was great (5 weeks). There was a good amount of schedule flexibility.

    ConsLeadership condoned and promoted gossip, backstabbing and doing whatever it took to get to the top - certain individuals were definitely tapped for these positions which resulted in a rendition of 'the hunger games'. Company has questionable billing practices and ways of recognizing revenue....which is exactly why they are in the position they are now and many of the top execs jumping ship to save face when the ball drops to the bottom.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
