I worked at Accretive Health

Pros

New leaders hired recently are trying to break through the "old school network"
Great business model....Stock will do well
Growth

Cons

All Sr. Leaders do is critize your work, tell you it isn't good enough. In over 2 years there I never heard one of the top leaders say nice job, thanks for your work....and I was a top talent

People stay because of the stock price...only money motivated

Culture is one built out of fear of getting called out....seen leaders throw othes under the bus as not to look bad personally

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to employees....only a handful of employees have enough stock options to care about the value.
stop the favoritism
listen to all employees not only the top 5 leaders

    I have been working at Accretive Health

    Pros

    Active recruiting is done to find and land bright, motivated people on a weekly basis. Most people are smart, passionate and willing to do whatever it takes to succeed.

    Cons

    On-boarding and first few weeks of new hire experience can be better. HR Team is small and tries hard, but because of rapid growth things fall through the cracks such as "what to do on your 1st week", office ettiquete, overview of company culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the minimization of heirachy in tact but do more active listening to current staff for new improvements. Casual fridays would be nice

    I worked at Accretive Health

    Pros

    1. The business is good. (A potential highly grow industry).
    2. Young and lots of energy.
    3. Have lots of motivated employees.

    Cons

    1. AH hire lots of contractors - which save the benefits cost but cannot get loyalty from contractors.
    2. Some managers treat contractor very bad - i.e. overtime without pay, use bad staffing firms (their "preferred" vendors - probably have "preferred" relationship with the management.)
    3. Lack of long term plan.
    4. Many non-skilled managers in the work place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need train your managers.
    Need to get feedbacks form the staffs (even the contractors since some of the groups don't hire any full time).
