No opinion of CEO

I worked at Accretive Solutions full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Learned faster than in any other job experience due to opportunity and training provided. Made valuable contacts for life both at clients and with other A/S consultants.Felt like member of team of like minded experts.Better than normal work/life balance as client normaally does not want to pay for huge amoutns of overtime.

Cons

If (or when) the client demand disappears, so does the employment. Major RIFs in 2009 downturn. Thus have same downside risk as any other silicon valley career, without the upside of stock options,, etc.

Advice to Management

Continue the good work with training and networking oppportiunities.

    Pros

    Accretive is a very good place to work. The entrepreneurial environment is one that is not available at other firms. The ability to be creative for clients is key to the success.

    Cons

    The benefits package is on the light side, especially considering the lack of a 401k match program. Communication from upper management has not been great, but is improving.

    Advice to Management

    Start offering a 401k match program for employees who have completed at least a year of employment with the firm.
