The corporate philosophy is condescending and controlling and physician morale is in a downward spiral.

Pros

At least half of your hours can be worked from home. Overtime is often available if you would like it.

Cons

Upward Mobility is Extremely Limited. Welcome to the assembly line. Doctors, prepare to be pushed around by people with only a BA or less.

Advice to Management

You should at least pretend to care about the doctors you employ. Costs would be reduced if you valued your current physician employees, rather than treating us as disposable and going to the trouble and expense of recruiting and training our replacements. Your physician turnover is unacceptably high in terms of financial cost and physician morale.

    Pros

    Great staff that are hard working. Location downtown easy to get to Most of the equipment is updated and IT works to resolve problems quickly.

    Cons

    Almost too many cons to list, and most have been listed on this site. First off family and friends run most of the departments. No real room to grow with the company, and even if you were given the chance to step up your salary wouldn't. Most of the day is filled with meetings that do not resolve the existing problems. Most of the departments are numbers driven and do not care about quality. No HR in house, so when you have a problem with Management it never is resolved. Staff insurance is bad and does not cover much. No work culture as no one hangs after work. All in all Accretive is a bright star that is on its way to burning out. No to mention all the allegations from Fairview.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that numbers just look good on paper and can be adjusted to make things look good even though they don't. Management is too inexperienced and lacks the backbone to take the real key issues to the powers that be.

    Pros

    Fast growing company with an excellant opportunity for advancement. Lots of very bright people to work with. Industry trends and industry leadership in revenue cycle will continue strong growth for a long time.

    Cons

    Company subject to government review which makes big swings stock options. Employees can expect a lot of travel (which is good and bad).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to educate governmental officials on the industry. Maintain a strong financial investment in IT.
