    Company manages by fear and intimidation. Nepotism is the company mantra.

    Pros

    A paycheck, that's about it.

    Cons

    Seems as if Accretive is preparing to outsource entire operation center to India. There is no actual way to meet management's expectation of work production. There are no bonus programs, incentive or any motivation for lower level employees to meet their metrics except the fear of losing their job. The employees that work pre-registration, insurance verification and customer service are the backbone of the company - there would be no Accretive without us, but we are not respected, appreciated or valued. Micromanagement is rampant and ineffective - we are adults and expect to be treated as thus. Company policy is a "case by case" basis - if you are well-liked by your team lead you will be allowed to break the rules whenever you wish. If you are not a "teachers pet" you are written up for any number of insignificant and unproven offenses. Management is very young and inexperienced with no management or human resource skills. The Kalamazoo office is a complete and utter mess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to see team leads and management hired that was not 20 years old and just out of college - more mature people with an old-school work ethic and life experience would be a huge improvement. The management in place now operates exactly like a high school clique or a college sorority, if you are not with the "in" crowd there is little or no chance of promotion or advancement no matter how qualified you might be. Treat your employees with respect, dignity and appreciation instead of intimidation and ridicule. Quit hiring your friends and family that have no skillset to do the job, promote from within the company.

    Pros

    Culture promotes self direction and innovation. Little micro-management on Operations side.

    Cons

    Company is riddled with public relations issues. While they are not completey meritted, they affect morale and create concern for future compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create concrete growth structure with absolute bonus recogition metrics.
