The American MTs get the left overs. Check their web site.

They send our American work to the Philippines,
Philippines you would not be allowed to work.  Americans cannot get jobs in the Philippines because they are saving them all for the Filipinos - don't know if we'd want them anyway but that is beside the point.  Doesn't seem fair, does it, that they can take our work away from us and we get nothing in return.
Philippines (2 Ps, 1 L)

Philippines *and* India. nm
sorry...truncated..I meant, he's in the Philippines
The worst offender for Philippines is SPI-BPO. sm
i think they added the BPO to their name so people wouldnt realize it was them, lol.

They have work done in Philippines and in India and the quality of the work just sucks so bad.

Steer clear of them, for sure.

Oh, that is unless you are a liaer and a thief. They like to have employees who screw them. One chick worked (yeah right - i should say BILLED) for 23 hours a day - she made $7000 the first month she was there and those idiots let her.

She is STILL there too. sigh
I found a lot of replies from Indian and Philippines
it seemed as if her post came FROM the Philippines as it said she was a member on the republic of philippines website.....

oops - typing police where are you. I meant Philippines
Anything Global or International prolly involves India or Philippines. nm
The best co. ever! Good work, good people, good pay, good bennies.
I'm with them. Good work environment, easy accounts and I'm making really good money. nm

Does anyone recommend a pretty good company that is good to work for, pay always on time and plenty
of work.  I know that is asking a lot, but just curious?
Is Transcend a good company with a good platform to work on. They are advertising.
U.S. only, very steady work, some VR, good pay, good insurance, no PT, schedule. sm
That should cover it!
SPI is a company out of the Philippines with an office in Nashville. Formerly Med-Type in Nashville
NO WORK at Transtech -- did no good to work the holiday for 1.5 lines, did it?
I am sure the office staff will share their PAID HOLIDAY MONIES with us who sit here with no work.  This has gotten to be such a frustrating profession.  I guess I need to relocate to Houston so that I can work in the office, too, and reap those wonderful paid benefits that us at-home piecemeal workers do not get.
Much good work going to India. Bad work left
I work 2 accts, always work available, pay as IC is good..
They offered me more than Transcend did, I work 2nd shift, work always availble, OT usually available. Staff is very responsive to questions, very helpful.

They have good work. They have sm
several different platforms.  They hire SE status. 
Good, all the more work for me!! sm
Not sure what bad stuff you heard or where you heard it, but please keep in mind that not every company is the perfect fit for every transcriptionist. I also heard good and bad about MDI-MD and chose to try for myself.

I have also seen positive and negative things mentioned about virtually every transcription company you discussed on this web site.
I currently work for them. They are a good
company. Pay is always on time. Work has been slow the past week. It's like all the other companies - when work is slow everyone is on the account and when there is a backlog - no one will work. My only complaint is that there are to many people on the account I work on but I'm sure it is for the reason listed above.
I used to work for them. Pay is good but...sm
An 18 to 20 day wait after invoice for a paycheck. They pay by the minute and gross lines for cardio accounts. The platform is very technical and I found it quite monotonous.
Hmm, I think they are good to work for. sm
Just because a few posters in the past do not like a particular company, doesn't mean that is the gospel truth about ANY place. Webmedx has plenty of work, good benefits and I think fair pay. If they were not a good fit for you, that does not mean they are not a good fit for someone else.
I know where they are....need to know if they are any good to work for.
If I have work, I'm good with it but
it sounds like the original poster was concerned about running out of work. I hope they are not only accepting MQ's overflow and have MANY other accounts. I have not run out of work and I'm praying I don't.
OSi good? No work!!
For at least 2 months now there has been no work.  14/15 hours a day waiting for work.  Can't IMAGINE why they are hiring when current employees are starving.
they use to be very good to work for sm
but don't know about now.
Good MTs will always have work
I worked with a company that uses the other parts of EMR. It's not just MT. Lab values and tests, radiology, etc are being entered oftentimes by office staff/hospital staff. There are companies already contracted to datamine this data and spit back reports to the facilities as to how efficient they are being, if their diabetic or cardiac patients are meeting all required criteria, if any blood levels are high/low etc. This is a GREAT thing for patient care.

MTs who have taken advantage of staying abreast of all venues available, who can do VR, edit, QA will work. There will be few MT jobs, IMO, because in order to decrease costs, the bottom rung is where to start. But if you're talented, willing to be flexible in your methods, and staying current on what's out there, you'll work.
Very, very good company to work
The pay, well, how good are you? You can make it what you want, so the post below, I would say she is not very good.
TTS Co has an ad running. Anyone know if they are good to work for? nm

Good or bad?

QT is not a good place to work IMO
Good company to work for

Hello Everyone,

  I am currently emplopyed with a major transcription company that I am not happy with.  I am looking to switch to another company, but not sure which one(es) would be a good decision.

I have 12 years of experience and am looking to work at home.  Any and all information would be helpful.

Thank you

I need a good company 2 work 4
Okay, having asked about Amphion, I'm just gonna ask if anyone can refer any good companies that have work. I need part-time employee status, preferably a computer, decent line pay, and good incentives. I really need to find a company in the next couple of weeks. I have been with MQ for a really long time and have had no work for the last four weeks and very low work volume for the last year. Thanks!
To be a good RN-you have to love the work. sm
I spent 13 years in the hospital in varying departments, 10 of them as a nurse aide. You can tell which nurses go into it for the money. They don't like to work afternoons, weekends or holidays. They get upset when they get blood or human waste on their uniforms. They can be very rude with the patients. I worked with lots of nurses and my point is, it takes a special nurse to work with sick people 5 days a week and many times over 8 a day. It's not for everybody. If you want to get a feel for nursing, become a CNA first. You can deal with very sick, very contagious patients. You can deal with very nice and also very cantakerous doctors. It's physically demanding, hard on the back, etc. The world needs more kind, caring, patient nurses, not nurses who just love the money earned and yes, it is good. If you love people, take pride in your work and truly don't mind all else that goes along with it-good and bad-then go for RN. But don't just do it for the money. I wanted to be an RN because I loved being a CNA but couldn't continue due to health reasons. I love being an MT because I still am exposed to the medical field, only now I am in the background instead of the front of the field.
Good company to work for.
Lots of work.  Platform is easy to learn.  Flexible schedules.  Good for an IC.
Good Company To Work For!!! :)
I have worked in the transcription industry for almost 16 years and by far Keystrokes has treated me the best since I have been with them. Wonderful staff, couldn't ask for anything any better. Why don't you apply? They have a lot to offer and are growing!
They are a good company to work for
Good luck to you, I have been with Medware almost one year, started part time and went full time.  I like my account and team leader, type on EXText.  Good benefits too.  They have consistent work and pay by direct deposit.   www.medwaremt.com  
Spheris is good to work for.
I worked for Spheris for a while.  I thought they were very good to work for.  I have no complaints.  They were very flexible on my hours when I needed it. 
No, not affiliated in any way. I work for the one in FL, and they are very good. nm
Yes, good company to work for
Pay on time, good benefits, decent line rate, 401-K (just started match), PTO.
Keystrokes definitely a good one - work there now
Had a nightmare experience with TT. Have heard DeVenture is a good one but no personal experience.
Not a good place to work. sm
They screw you over and don't pay very well.  I would stay clear of them!!!!
Very good company wot work
for if you seriously want to work full time. That was my problem. I didn't want to be on a set schedule.
good friend went to work for them
She was trained on the platform haphazardly and quit after one day.  There is no grace period for getting docked for mistakes and from the first report, they started docking her pay for any type of mistake.  The patient list came in a copied fax format that you couldn't even see and she said it was just awful trying to find a patient name.
DSG is NOT MQ. They are a good company to work for, sm
The only thing now is there is not a lot of work except for QA evidently.  But I still like working for them.  They just use the DocQScribe platform like a few other companies.
You need to work for a good company, sm
one that does not outsource or lie. That company is Webmedx. Give them a try. I have been there since 2003 and actually enjoy my job for a change.
ZYLOMED good or bad to work for?
tell all please
you need a good chair to work with sm
I had the same problems for years until I broke down and spent the money for a Herman Miller chair. They are expensive, upwards of 700 bucks, but I can tell you now that I have one, I have NEVER had a problem with my back. I would never work again without this kind of a chair.
Good pay, steady work?
I was considering applying but don't want to jeopardize my current job.
Thanks. Do they have good amount of work?
Is the payment on time?
