    I have been working at Accretive Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Senior Management is trying to turn around the unbalanced intra-structure. The flexibility of not always having to be physically in an office is great and allows for stronger productivity.

    Cons

    Positions are created for new hires without giving any opportunity to current employees for the new positions. Inconsistent messages are given regarding growth tracks and salaries. Agree with another review if you know the right people you will do better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salary banding was a great start at leveling out what prior senior leadership had done, however, the banding for salary levels should be shared. Too much is relied on direct managers sharing accurate data and that is not always happening. There is no way to know what the salary range is for a given position and where you fall within it.

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

    Pros

    I work with a lot of great people and enjoy the non-profit opportunities. I find the work interesting as things change a lot. Enjoy working with customers and designing solutions. Exciting to see the company get back on track after a year+ of distractions.

    Cons

    Experience and job satisfaction varies greatly by the job and supervisor. Although HR remains fairly poor, the company has a lot of bright people. Some managers are difficult to work for. Compensation is okay, but should be better for the amount of work. Promotions can be hard to get as everyone seems to apply for each position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to replace poor managers with qualified people. Massive improvement over the past year in many areas. Nice job on IT upgrades and growth; now focus on HR so we can consistently bring in the people we need and give everyone the same, positive, experience.

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

    Pros

    Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, They serve cockroach in free food provided by company.

    Cons

    Its a BPO/KPO, company's HR, Admin and the office internal infrastructure is pathetic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve infrastructure, hire HR/Admin people who should know how to talk and behave with employee. Monitor India office regularly because all the Indian management thinks that they are the owner of the company. just an example: No AC in the cab while returning from the office in the late night, Now think how much money you guys will save and compare it with employee dissatisfaction. you guys are hiring employee from reputed mnc but if you are not met the basic standards then you will loose them very frequently hence attrition rate is high here and nobody in Indian management care about it.

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

    Pros

    Good salary, learn a ton in excel, get to be a "consultant" for a bit and learn that lifestyle.

    Cons

    Terrible company communication, management, leadership. Selfish company concerned about short term profits which is evident in the fact that no hospitals resign agreements. Company promises bonus and doesn't deliver.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to manage revenue before becoming a revenue management consulting firm. Get listed on the stock exchange again.

    Pay is good if you are willing to work for it.

    Cons

    Most senior leadership seems to miss the pulse of both the front line employess - as well as hospital leadership. HR is non existent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through on your promises as what is being said is exciting. People here have become jaded with promises though.
