Pros

A lot of highly intelligent people work at Accretive Health Accretive has the potential to be a great place to work The AH technology tool suite has excellent elements

Cons

Anyone who works at Accretive Health will tell you that the firm is polluted and the morale crushed by blatant nepotism that starts at the top with the CEO. The CEO is one of the smartest business people I have ever encountered and just being in a room with her is contagious, however, what she has chosen to do with awarding executive level jobs and stock options to her family (including sister, sister-in law, nephew, etc.) and other friends that have little to no education or background in healthcare or consulting is appalling.

Advice to Management

Get the CEO to realize that her words are viewed by the entire firm as lip service and not reality. She constantly talks about the 'best idea wins' and 'results no kidding' but that does not translate to action within the firm. People roll their eyes at the canned sayings and qoutes coming out of top management. The best and most experienced individuals at the firm are leaving a rapid rate that is being ignored.

    Pros

    Intelligent coworkers, an environment that values results and a chance to make a difference for clients. Young group with lots of room for advancement.

    Long hours but standard to other jobs. Would like to know of other opportunities outside of Minneapolis, perhaps at other sites?

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to new ideas instead of "thats the way we do it", and implement change beyond just saying it.

    * Increase communication amongst colleagues regardless of position (allow for all individuals to have a say when it comes to proposing new alternatives) * Create more of a personable work environment yet professional at the same time (establish a mentor system) * Invest more time in showing employees the company's appreciation for having them (social events, company parties, casual Fridays, etc.)
