    It was great experience while it lasted. It's a shame the hard times the company has encountered.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIt is a good working environment and great people. The management is not in touch with the challenges that the rank and file faces on day to day basis.

    ConsManagement is out of touch and our desperate to save the company. They drive the workers really hard and take credit for their underlings work.

    Has internal challenges due to being disconnected with their clients and market

    Director (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsPays well in the industry. Works with some major health systems in the country

    ConsLeadership tends to have limited experience in the industry and sets expectations with the clients without understanding the clients challenges. Employees are expected to work long hours and if traveling, 80% travel -

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet leadership that has experience and credentials. Those that did left shortly after the IPO.

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

    PAS (Physician Advisory Services)

    Physician Advisor (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexible schedule (can work from home on some days). Employees are generally quite talented. Great central location.

    ConsManagement is insanely rude and doesn't care about employee morale. The department doesn't provide adequate training (it's a sink or swim environment). Quality of services is not a priority- only revenue. Although none of the jobs are commision based, it certainly feels that way as it's such a "productivity" based culture and you must meet daily/weekly quotas or get ready to be threatened with termination. Bonuses and raises are promised for individuals who "put in the extra mile" but that rarely happens. This company/dept has high employee turnover b/c of all the issues and is very unstable. Most employees are jumping ship as soon as they find a better job. The rest who are still here (who haven't landed a another job yet) are getting pretty beat down by all the politics and are extremely unhappy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employees and take care of them, or else the company will collapse even faster.

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

    This is a good stepping stone to something better

    Insurance Billing Verification (Former Employee) Kalamazoo, MI

    ProsThe employees are great and the hours can be flexible. New things are always being implemented so that's a good thing.

    ConsManagement needs to be more in touch with the employees; pay scale is very poor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that your employees are the ones who make the company successful, not the upper management. If you treat your staff well, pay them well, they will be willing to jump through hoops to push this company to high success.

    Accretive Health

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood job for someone out of college with room to grow and move up in the company. The wages, benefits and other perks of the job are good.

    ConsProblems with work/life balance, its definitely a sink or swim mentality. If your unable to do the job, they will find someone else who can. Unrealistic expectations, management needs to be more clear on what their looking for with the employees day to day job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Undoubtedly the WORST place I have ever worked

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsThe view from the 27th floor was truly beautiful. There were some great people that worked there. There was beer on Friday afternoons.

    ConsThis company was all about chewing up and spitting out every thing that it came into contact with employees, client, etc. There was no QA for there product, no SOX compliance, no ability to scale their toolset. Everyone in IT wanted to be the hero so no one wanted to collaborate.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Decent pay and benefits; floundering leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood software tools, which are being expanded and improved. Decent pay and a good benefits package. Some flexibility in hours. Some really good colleagues who know their stuff, work hard, and still have fun.

    ConsLack of direction and focus from leadership. Currently a company in transition. Company staff in India seem to receive more training, attention, and appreciation than U.S. staff. Poor communication.

    An unpredictable ride

    Senior Lead (Current Employee) Chicago, IL
