    Good for for college new-hires but don't stay more than the first promotion cycle

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

    Pros

    •Lots of responsibility for inexperienced college grads
    •Chance to manage people early in your career
    •Chance to work with some really smart people

    Cons

    • Poor feedback from managers
    • No direction for new employees. Development is hit and miss. If you have a team who is willing to mentor you can learn a lot. Many teams are cutthroat however, and relish chances to throw you under the bus or make you look bad
    • There is not structure to promotions. They will tell you it is based on performance. It’s not. It is based on how much your site lead is respected and how willing they are to work on your behalf. They do not look at performance or metrics but instead how they feel about you.
    • Bonuses and raises are haphazard and usually do not come out until April or May
    • Often hire big talkers who like to boss people around but do very little
    • Nepotism is rampant. Early promotions, raises and other perks for employees related to upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote based on performance. Stop the nepotism it is really hurting moral. Pay the industry standard.

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

    Pros

    Really innovative approach to dealing with many healthcare providers revenue cycle problems. Most of their process is essentially doing what the providers should already be doing, just doing it better. At its core Accretive Health has a solid business foundation and strategy.

    Cons

    Accretive Health suffers from a systematic lack of planning and foresight. This is driven more than ever by their hiring of people right out of college without experience to keep their costs down. Accretive offers no guide, no procedures, no footprint for new operations leads to work from. The combination of offering no organizational guidance and hiring students without experience is leading to strained client relationships because employees are not given the tools in which to excel.

    Many of the problems with employee satisfaction can lead back to one of the high level executives that likes to rule with an iron fist, swearing and belittling is more common than not when in his presence. Also as part of their strategy to keep costs down they keep advancement opportunities to a minimum and keep pay at the low end until an employee puts in their 2 weeks notice, at that point Accretive Health will counter offer.

    Despite their solid business model I don't see Accretive Health continuing to grow. They're making a bad name for themselves with their business tactics and the way they treat employees. I don't believe they will exist in 5 years.
