I absolutely love them...sm
I have worked for them almost 2 years and have been totally and completely happy. They treat you great. The account I work on is internet based with an excellent platform using MS Word. I would highly recommend this company.
I absolutely love your saying of
you'd rather herd cats! I have 3 of my own and I can only imagine that fiasco in my mind. They march to their own drum, wouldnt come to you when you call them for nothing, aloof, oh, how I love my furries.
Been there for 4 years and absolutely love it! sm

Good accounts, pay on time via direct deposit, higher pay than most, smaller company where people still know you by name and truly care.  As for the platform, you type in Bayscribe and send your reports in live via the web site.  Some accounts are converting to wav files, and some are still via C-phone and you have to pay your own long distance. 

Of course, as with all companies, one man's paradise is another man's hell, so I am sure there are those who will disagree with me.  If I can answer anymore questions, fee free to ask.

Good luck! 

I currently work for them, and absolutely love them!
Pay is direct deposit and always on time. The account I'm on is relatively easy, although there are a few ESLs. I've been there 6 months now, and am very happy.
I absolutely LOVE Inscribe
Everything is so user friendly, and I love the fact that you can see what jobs are coming up and you can print them, so you know how much work there is actually on the system and how much you have produced. It is the BEST that I have seen out there!! Hope that helps.
I absolutely love Allscripts...
I've used quite a few platforms and Allscripts is just about my favorite. MS Word-based, and the count on the account I was on (no headers/footers) was accurate with Word's count.  If the authors/account use markers the demographics fill in quickly; the environment is very clean and efficient, simple and easy to understand, moving really smoothly from one job to the next with little-to-no fuss. Get in and out of the program very quickly, too.  I think you will love it! 
I work there and absolutely love it. You
set your schedule each week in 2-hour blocks each day. You have a minimum production per day you have to do and you need to work sometime within the blocks of time you schedule yourself.
Absolutely love my job at Meridian.
I absolutely love your answer (sm)
I, like you, have read some of the newbie's questions and if a person thinks VR can train a newbie, then apparently they donít know 1 thing about VR. I have worked in this field since 1973 and as matured as I am, you have to be on your toes all the time whether straight or VR and it is not a teaching machine. Why people on here get the idea that being slower, having lack of experience in MTing or whatever better qualifies them to work on VR, I have no clue where that comes from.
I absolutely love it and make lots of $$$ on it. sm
Been working with eScription for about 6 years now and absolutely love it. Would not want to go back to straight transcription ever.

I also make great money with it ~ at least $50 an hour, consistently.

I count my blessings every day!
I work for Shapin as lead QA and absolutely LOVE my job..sm
The owner is the most fair employer Ii have ever had!! She is kind to personal situations. She will help you out any way she can. I make really, really good money working for her. She is looking for more editors, as the company is growing a great deal. If you want more info, please feel free to contact me at MaryC_RI285@msn.com.
absolutely love it thus far!!!! been through 3 lately and finally hope i can stay put and am alread
Absolutely awesome awesome platform. I love it.
I believe the concensus is you either love it or hate it. I personally love it and make lots of money.
Love, love, love TransTech! Not overhiring, just growing like crazy!
I too love path & can't find it at home & would love to cross-train into rad in the meantime I do
Love this company, love my boss, very informative QA.nm.
Does anyone think 41 is too old to go to nursing school. I love MT but I just would love to be a
nurse.  I have such a interist in helping others and the medical world.
Love, love, love DeVenture
Super nice, flexible and just all around nice to work for.
Love, love, love Axolotl
I totally love Axolotl.  Just as A-team said, fantastic benefits.  Yes, strict schedule, but never ever had a problem getting off when I needed to.  I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. 
I would love to know too, I love EXText
Love Bayscribe and love the pay
At 11 cpl I love working for MDI Maryland. Bayscribe is a breeze. The lines build up so quickly. Everything is right there on the page. Sometimes, you have to fill in patient data, but who cares.... you do get paid for it. No holiday or vacation pay as it is an IC position. It beats 8 and 9 cpl any day. IMO
Love, love Archivus
Mind my asking what your line rate is? Do you have to work a schedule? Is their platform good? Anything else?
love/hate MT, mostly love it :)
i've long been dismayed with the direction in which this profession has gone, and i agree with the person who posted that women have accepted substandard wages and/or unfair IC or employment situations. It's very sad to see how, when outsourcing became the norm, women did not adequately negotiate to, you know, pay their bills!!! It seems this has resulted in lots of undercutting and lower line rates for everyone. I see some companies slowly improving and not requiring crazy line counts and hours in exchange for paying into health insurance. i entered this profession as a single female. i married an engineer and was living mighty comfy and cushy and happily doing 4 hours at 11 cpl in the late 90s. didn't have to worry about not having bennies at all. now as a single mom with a young child, i truly struggle. but i do love my work and hold out for my specialty to keep the line count up. still, i see the glaring problems and it's just a shame. if there were an MT union, i'd join in a heartbeat. no time/energy to start one and be some kind of norma rae, though!

Ah, yes, a love/hate thing indeed!

Best to all of you wonderful mts, male and female :)
Absolutely not!!!
MTs make more money than migrant farm workers.  We work fewer hours.  We get to sit on our butts inside the house with air conditioning while they're outside doing physical labor in the hot sun.  Our supervisors don't threaten us with deportation.  We're not exposed to harmful chemicals and pesticides that cause cancer and birth defects.  Believe me, migrant farm workers have life a lot worse than you do.  I would suggest you try it out for a few months if you really think MT is that bad.
Got 1300 lines in today so far, how many you got?
Absolutely . . . sm
But there's no need for personal attacks and insults. And while I have looked to this forum for info on companies, I'm really not interested in someone's daily nonstop personal vendetta against a company. And just because someone else doesn't agree, that doesn't make them "crazy" or "management." Those remarks are ridiculous and uncalled for. If you want to be the playground bully, go find a playground.
Oh, absolutely!

"Kuddos" is a very important medical word. 

Absolutely not
Depends on your acute - on my training account I was typing 300 lph -  now, they put me on the other hospitals in that same account, with TERRIBLE dictators, etc. - and I'm lucky to get 100-150 lph. It's disgusting. Now today - after the big incentive all weekend for my account - after weeks and weeks of backlog, there is absolutely no work. Isn't that special?
You absolutely sure?
no more
Absolutely NO.
You wanted me to make something up, so I did. :-)

Use your tools! Google it! do your homework. Ask professionals.

If people don't answer you here then you need to look elsewhere. None of needs to be called to task because we didn't take time from our lives to address something you could have found on your own (which is probably why you didn't get responses until you got pushy). Be grateful and thankful that some people finally told you where you should already know to look.

You know the saying, give a man a fish....teach a man how to fish....
Absolutely! nm
absolutely not.....
No company should take that long to pay. Even those in other areas of work who get paid once monthly, get paid at the end or the first of the month, not 2 weeks after the fact. That is ridiculous. I would come right out and ask them why the pay is taking soooo long!
The only reason (or excuse) would be they can't get paid any sooner from their clients, which means they should renegotiate pay schedules with them.

No one I know has ever had to wait that long, either at home or in a private facility, to get their check, or else no one would be working.....they would go to someone else where they get paid and can PAY THEIR OWN BILLS ON TIME!!
Absolutely NOT
IF you love nursing, there is definitely a shortage of nurses.  GO...GO.. GO! 

I just started the overnight check thing this week and was curious how it worked.  I hate relying on it to come by snail mail, need it to be a little more dependable.  I have been with them for about 6 months now and really do enjoy it.  I have my own accounts and just have to meet the TAT (48 hrs).  The pay isn't the best but I finally like what I am doing again so it's worth it. 

I left my e-mail address this time, so you can email me if you want.

Absolutely, consider it done!
This is my mission right now! Damn it, we did not deserve this and now the poster above is right, no email to give us our final resting instructions. I called out sick at Heartland last night due to my state of mind and Melissa Carr, my former manager sent my email to Kathy Clemmons and Colleen Neidert, guess you can't use your sick time either!

I am no longer mamacarolina, but Mary Kirkpatrick, ex-Heartland employee, standing up for all of us at Heartland. I want our voices to be heard. I want this to stop!
Absolutely Nothing
Zip, zilch, nada. She probably doesn't even know it's MT week. Sad, isn't it?

ABSOLUTELY!! Go for it! nm
Have to find something else. I heard a lot of good things about this particular company I am with on the board and thats why I went to work for them, but this is really awful. I figured even with a line rate increase$$ its going to make very little difference.
No need to waste your time or theirs if the pay isn't enough
I OFTEN email the reporter on a story - have even been interviewed as a result.

I ALSO like to follow the links/google jerks like this Acusis guy and email them as well. I have NO beef with poor people in other countries trying to improve their lives, BUT I have HUGE beef with cRapitalists in this country sending our WELL-EARNED, decent paying jobs overseas. Wake up people! Don't Americans see what is happening? By shipping good/high wage jobs overseas, we are now forced into a lower stardard of living. PROTEST IS PATRIOTIC. Lift your voices and let your public officials hear from you: FAIR trade, NOT free trade.

And BOTH parties are equally guilty!
Absolutely run

I edited quite a bit of work that she contracted out to an Indian company, which was horrible, and got paid the wrong amount.  Although she did make it right, I decided after just a few days this place was not worth my time and effort.  She talks the talk (looking to make a difference in the MT business, values people, etc.), but she does not walk the walk. 

absolutely right ...
Independent contractors set their own hours, IRS will hold a companies feet to the fire for that. I work Saturdays for Transcend and I gave them my hours I want to work and they accepted them. I think the weekend hours asked for is dependent on the account you work. At least that has been my experience with Transcend. All is negotiated when you are hired.
yes, absolutely.
I will continue to be a cheerleader as well. I agree with all the good things you said about TransTech. I simply couldn't feel happier with my choice to go with them 2 years ago.
I have written emails stating why i deserve the raise and have always gotten one that way. Plus I would always ask for more than you expect...bump the request up to 1 full cent so that if they give you half, you got what you wanted but you could get a bonus too.
Absolutely not. SM
Only the Administrator (owner of the board) and myself (main moderator). There are a couple of other moderators for the political boards, etc.

If you have questions about how the board is run, discuss them via email with us.

Absolutely do it
I did the same approximately a year ago. I've got everything you mentioned, plus they pay my cable bill, plus I get generous PTO allowances, plus they don't run out of work, plus the pay and benefits are great, plus I have the same doctors all the time. What's not to like? Also, I'd think being an IC is not dependable like it used to be. I think you should go for it and fast.
Absolutely too low sm
Considering I am paid 12 cpl for VR and 17 cpl standard transcription. The amount you stated is terribly low.

Of course, this is my own account; however, I can tell you the going rate for companies is 8 cpl standard, 4 VR editing and I have also seen 10 cpl and 6 cpl VR.

Absolutely! nm
Absolutely not, not the MTs (sm)
They brought in a doctor to manage things (can't remember her name - things started to change then) & then for me anyway they drove out my excellent and professional super sweet and hard working terrific account liaison and put another MQ upper person in her position and it was never the same for me after that. So, I guess I shouldn't exagerate and say a bunch because I have no idea how many but I saw the whole mentality of the company change to exactly what I had experienced at Medquist and it was sickening. So, no, it was not the MTs, the leads, the management. They are snotty and started treating everybody like take it or leave it - that was the end of work on your specialty- it was the end of ever receiving a reply to an e-mail question. I could just go on and on but I just don't have the energy left. It's sad but true and I'm over it...I just hope the company can get back to what they used to be but I don't think it ever will be or could because they don't acknowledge their issues so how can they fix it? Just like MQ would overhire and make you just sit there waiting for work...is it deja vu or what working for MDI now? People who have been hired anytime in the recent past (and not counted as one of their favored long-time MTs) is simply and plainly being used as overflow disposable MTs and they want to pay you less and less so pushed out the people they hired at 10-11 cpl back when we had to pay for unlimited LD and dial in. Now they are .wav...MTs who want to work for them are a dime a dozen..they want to stay on top of TAT instantly so ipso facto overhire and keep overhiring and they get what they want and you get whatever you can get and good luck! Back in the day, you could write D. directly and she would answer and address it immediately and satisfactorily and caringly...good luck ever hearing from her unless it is just a form email rah rah bunch of fake (and misspelled by the way) crap sent to the masses. People used to be treated so well...now you are just a number...their era of greatness is over IMO. IT was good while it lasted but you can only survive on memories of greatness for so long before you have to face reality.
