    I worked at Accretive Health

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, great location, can work remote often, helpfull environment.

    Cons

    Managment could be stronger, some employees could be more educated in their position, no bonuses for importance of work being done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR needs to hire more qualified support members. Incentives for work being done passed quota.

    Indian management is pathetic, don't what is 360 degree feedback mechanism, doing experiments every time.

    Look for promotions and policies which are friendlier for junior staff.

    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.

    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.
