    I have been working at Accretive Health full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees and take care of them, or else the company will collapse even faster.

    Consulting firm with no direction that continues to anger clients and employees. Greed is never a good thing.

    I worked at Accretive Health full-time (more than an 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember 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.

    I worked at Accretive Health

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Problems 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.

    Pros

    It 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.

    Cons

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