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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    my coworkers, feel proud of all I contributed, learned a lot about the business

    Cons

    management does not communicate or value its employees. Requests for information or suggestions for improvements meet with either no response at all (most often), degrading responses or patronizing responses. This occurring while the corporate all hands meetings are emphasizing "transparency" and "getting out of our silos". If it is not in the best interests of those in power, your ideas will not be considered or acknowledged, no matter how much you bring or how hard you work. I enjoyed all I learned and feel that I contributed a lot but left feeling like it didn't matter at all.

    Pros

    Pay is equal or in some cases above the competition. Trying to formally train employees. Great staff at operator levels

    Very few operators in middle and upper mgmt have any practical rev cyc experience. Still believe they are the best in the business but are barely average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company to any firm understanding the market that could better utilize some of the developed software and people
