Culture Change to Servant Leadership is a good thing

Corporate (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

ProsChange in culture over the past few months has been great - now focused on what we should be, patients and clients instead of the arrogance and big egos that used to be here. Much more respectful and humble. The changes are positive and Steve is a great leader - open and honest

Conslegacy issues that we are still dealing with

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing - it's making a difference

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

A Company In Transition

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Accretive Health full-time for more than 3 years

Pros1) Tremendous people - the team represents a unique blend of career healthcare professionals, career consultants from other industries and process excellence from other industries
2) Tremendous IP - some of its greatest assets may be hidden from view
3) Great customers - never met a customer who wasn't excited about the innovation we were jointly driving

Cons1) Some of its greatest assets aren't being leveraged in front of all customers
2) Management is straining to make substantial changes on many fronts

Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your people.

BI Lead

Business Intelligence Lead (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Accretive Health full-time for less than a year

ProsIt is still a new and growing department. The work is challenging, but you are constantly learning something new and gaining a variety of experience.

ConsOther departments are not as organized and can be frustrating.

Advice to Senior ManagementHaving a better plan/idea of department goals and procedures would be helpful.

Still working through major changes and challenges from the past

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Accretive Health

ProsThe people are incredibly bright and innovative so you're always working with a team that has great capability. The existing client base is well respected and as an employee you have access to a robust learning environment.

ConsThe challenges really are around the past history and continued concerns fueled by lingering issues that hinder new sales and growth. This makes hitting targets tough.

Advice to Senior ManagementRebrand the organization and put forth a visionary plan of how Accretive adds value to the health care economy.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Delisting - Unaware of the core business

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

ProsReally good team to work with. Everyone knows their role, and everyone is willing to help out.

ConsLack of communication between each functional team, and especially with the upper management. Also the upper management is unaware of the current situation of the company, for instance, they didn't realize how much time the restatement was going to take, which eventually led to the stock getting delisted from NYSE.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind out how to gain more marketshare, since a lot of the bigger clients contracts are coming to an end. Also, determine what value are added to the client's process, why do the clients need our help.

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

Growing Pains

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

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

ProsGreat learning opportunities, especially if you are a new grad. A lot of really smart people work here. The new leadership team seems to be taking the company in a good direction, which will both stabilize the company and open some growth opportunities. New CEO, COO, and other execs really value input from employees at all levels.

ConsCommunication is improving, but is inconsistent. Company has gone through a lot of turnover at top - a lot of instability and fear among staff while changes shake out. Going to take time to get changes that need to be made in place.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore communication. Front-line associates need to be able to see and support the vision of the company as it goes through changes.

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

Great Experience

Senior Operations Lead (Former Employee)

I worked at Accretive Health full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLots of opportunity for intelligent people to accept a lot of responsibility quickly. Learned a ton about revenue cycle and got some excellent leadership projects.

ConsHard work with lots of politics and leadership does not appreciate/reward the employee for their work

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on your employees, when you start taking advantage of them the deliverable depreciates rapidly.

Great potential to grow

Director (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Accretive Health full-time for more than a year

ProsThe new leadership has brought positive change and a refreshing example of how we will grow.

ConsGive some of the individual contributors the ability to provide input, especially the ones that have tenure

Advice to Senior ManagementContinute to focus on our growth model, and hire exceptional people to take us there
