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

Pros

I get to work with some of the most intelligent and driven people that I have ever met in super relevant industry with a lot of opportunity for improvement
Not the typical consulting firm with respect to how we “partner” with clients

Cons

Processes are not necessarily defined (i.e. HR policies, path for advancement, workflow)
Instead of being proactive, there are alot of quick fixes and fire drills.
Performance Evaluations are useless with the "rack and stack" process

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There isn't any visibility into the promotion process and no defined career path for associates. I've seen this issue cause employees to leave in search of a company with more opportunity for growth and I wish there was more attention paid to retaining quality employees.
Spend the resources to improve processes and define roles/expectations for employees
Revamp the Performance Evaluations so that there is more opportunity for an employee to showcase how effective they are within the company (i.e. 360 reviews not just self-evaluations with manager’s comments; It’s not just what you can show with your individual efforts but how other people view working with you, not just your manager)

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

    Pros

    Recruitment of Leads, Sr. Leads and Mangers bring in solid talent. Smart colleagues, willing to put in extra hours to achieve goals.

    Cons

    Why does senior leadership invest more time and efforts with entry and mid level talent? Not enough internal promotions. We bring in all these VP's and SVP's and no one below them is promoted!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do mid-year promotions or 1/2 year bonus payouts. Stop paying favorites and invest in your people!

    I worked at Accretive Health full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Decent pay
    - Exposure to different areas of healthcare
    - I cannot think of any other pros but I there is a 20 word minimum, so here it is

    Cons

    - No work/life balance. Expect to put in minimum 60 hour weeks
    - Minimal change for advancement/salary increase
    - Constantly putting out fires...management demanding "I want this yesterday" regularly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge that your "business model" of aggressively harassing patients to pay their bills is not sustainable
