NO WORK again today -- mgmt, are your checks LOW, too???? n/m
Who is making the money to keep your paychecks the same????
Is this really fair? You mgmt people should be doling out some of your paychecks to us MT's who have NO WORK and LOW PAYCHECKS.
Didn't realize you were actually MISSING a day of work b/o people working O/T. What did mgmt say?
but mgmt told me they outsourced some work to a small company at times.
There is no reason for me to lie about this.
I am NOT talking about offshoring, but the company whom they outsource to may offshore . . . I have no idea about that. But straight from the horse's mouth, they have outsourced to a small MTSO before.
You can notice how the work dries up all of a sudden when they turn it over to the service and we have no work.
TT mgmt may not tell that they outsource today, but they definitely told me about 9 months ago when I asked when the work was low. From the way the jobs disappear occasionally, I think it happens quite often.
Don't know mgmt, but in Feb. you needed Word 2003 and Office 2003 to work. nm
LOL! No, I'm FAR from mgmt!
Nemesis would have been closer ;) Believe me, I have STUDIED this company and would be the first to zing them if I felt it was earned.
Former MQ Mgmt = HIS Mgmt
U'r KS mgmt - I do my job, so had better you
Only someone in mgmt at the co. would keep posting like this, and be so seriously upset. I can just see an MT defending someone they work for like this, LOL.
The IC co. I just left did the same thing. Always responding pretending to be an MT. LOL.
Like I SD - you better believe my pay better be in my acct on the day it is supposed to be there. Not 1-2 days late. You want me ON TIME on the job, you want me to be responsible, give you advance warning of days off, do a quality job, to work the hours I am scheduled. LOL - that goes 2 ways - you better do YOUR job and ON TIME.
Yes I am in Mgmt.
I see it as part of my job to check things and keep it fair.
U can try discussing it with mgmt but you will just
be discriminated against because u do not think what they do is the best thing since fried grits. If the program is so wonderful, why all the problems, the notes on the private board about major issues never resolved. Why does it break down every day? Why are line counts so hard to get? Say a word to mgmt about anything and u pay the price by getting nothing but garbage for dictators and garbage accounts.
They could save a lot of money by trashing this program and starting from scratch cuz MLS could actually produce some work on something decent.
They must be in co-hoots with OSI's mgmt
Should be -- Don't KNOW if she means mgmt.
When I applied, Word 2000 and Excel 2000 was the minimum that you needed.. I did ask about the bounced checks, etc and was told that they do not currently have an issue but it was at one time.
Every reason to believe? Oh, boy. I think mgmt (sm)
has better things to do than sit around on these boards all day. Trust issues, huh?
Did you not think that QA and mgmt were in contact?
My advice - look elsewhere. They (mgmt) is
extremely rude and feedback is insulting.
OMG! That explains it, then. MQ mgmt, and
ex-management are literally scum. After that enlightenment, I wouldn't say I was smart to send MDI-MD packing, but rather my MQ disgust radar was going off, and I didn't know why. Isn't that bizarre? That happened to me at another company a while back - one I was checking out before leaving MQ, and I accidentally recognized one of the names of management on a group email, and inquired. Sure enough, it was a company started by all ex-MQ mgmt. I tried to stay the course, but it was just the same old BS under a different company name. So sad, as I had heard great things about MDI-MD as well. Thus, my willingness to give them a shot. That's really a shame. Lots and lots of MQ MTs left MQ for them as well, and I know not many of us can handle any additional financial hits right now. So sad. People get the courage to leave one monster, and end up in the monster's spawn. Sorry if I offend anyone, but if you know MQ, you can relate.
Mgmt is US based but BAD!!!
Since the US management took over, there is no work and many Focus MTs have either quit - like myself - or have acquired 2nd employers so they make money. No work, bad management, accounts leaving, payroll always coming up short now, no decent QA, management that won't answer your IMs and if you call team leader you are called stupid, a liar, a worthless retard and basically they hate you and will fire you. I would personally avoid the company. It was better and more honest and work flow was great when the Indians managed Focus!
That seems all you have done . . . TransTech mgmt ????
So silly . . . .
sure sounds like T mgmt, but thats okay.
send it to everyone BUT mgmt. Make sure it's just to the MTs. sm
what are they gonna do? fire you? LOL
They also did not change the MGMT insurance
and that's just not right. Seems the ones who are making them all that money for their BIG salaries are the ones who are suffering. VERY UNFAIR.
Don't ever forget that HR works for MGMT and not
Recruiters or mgmt should not be solicting
for employees on this particular board, it is for the MTs to share information about companies. I know this isn't an MT.
Adept Word Mgmt.
I used to work for them when I lived in Texas and I did not like them at all. Don't bother....
At the risk of being called mgmt, I have to say (sm)
that when I started 2 years ago my very first check was direct deposited, but I can't remember how much time they had to do it. I DO remember I was shocked, because the company I had come from always told us, it took several pays before it went through. I think it was because they just didn't bother with the paperwork involved.
TT Mgmt says more is going to VR by Dictaphone and Escription
Trying every way to cut our pay. Less and less regular transcription. Of course, as mgmt says, this is the wave of the future. But how do we explain that 1/2 cut in pay to our mortgage companies and be able to put gas in our car to go anyway. Horrible thing happening in this MT field for the MT's.
sups, mgmt, recruiters...
And whatever almighty names you wanna call yourselves. This is someone you can learn from.
lol! i'm not mgmt and not scared, just wanted to
share my opinion. I'm just a plain 'ole MT, wouldn't want to be in management or an MTSO. Had a couple of my own local clinic accounts some years back, but one of the doctors went out of business, and I gave the other one to a friend because I was tired of driving 30 minutes one way to pick up tapes and deliver.
Bottom Line -- Mgmt always says that
cherry-picking is not allowed and will be dealt with; however, it very rarely is. If management is not going to take care of it, nothing you can do. Just type and go on. This way, you will get up to speed on these dictators and it will not matter in the long run.
When MDI mgmt posts on these boards
they don't hide behind a moniker. They use their real names. People will think what they want to think, but I'm with the OP on this one!
Just because we can't see it doesn't mean mgmt isn't dealing with it. (sm)
Hopefully they are still monitoring this. The only time I really noticed a problem was a few months ago, they had hired some new people on my main account and they evidently didn't like foreign accents. After a few days an E-mail came out about cherry picking and those people were gone, either to another account or company, I don't know.
It is VERY clear Web mgmt does not care at all about their MTs.
If they did, this overhiring and scrambling for work wouldn't happen constantly as it does now. They can keep their townhall meetings and cookbooks and let us work consistently.
I'm sure the team leads and mgmt SM
are keeping track of line counts, right? Then they should be quite aware of who isn't getting their count in and contacting those people to find out what the problem is.
CONGRATULATIONS MTSO MGMT
I really enjoyed this post.
I have worked for a lot of companies and can tell you this has the worst mgmt of sm
any company I know. They are unprofessional and they do not know how to manage. They are running around like chickens with their heads chopped off, play people against each other (watch behind you if you go there) and you really do not want to go there. They do hire outside the U.S., almost everywhere actually-not just India, the Phillippines, but as far away as Australia. Their tech support is bad and the company could care less about those that work for them. On an up note, they pay on time. That's all I can say about them that is good. You would do better working for any other service that is around than working for them.
or maybe some offices still have poor mgmt & skills
I thought this was mgmt also but kept my mouth shut...nm
I am not upper mgmt. I am just a Transhealth employee. They have gotten
a bad wrap on these boards. I don't know who has done all this, but I can tell you that their current staff (including QA) are the best. The ESL account is a tough one but you have a good QA staff to help you get to know it and there are samples available for you immediately.
You may email me and I would be happy to share more.
Also, their insurance is available the very next month after employment. If you start on the last day of the month, the insurance is in place the next day.
Word of advice. I was told by mgmt. once that they
that are easier so that they can learn the platform and TTS quicker without having to deal with heavy ESL or particularly picky account specific information. Once the new hire is adept at the what they need to know company-wide, they put them on an account where the need is greater. Well, actually, the not-so-new-anymore hire ASKS for a secondary account because for some 'mysterious' reason they run out of work on the account they were trained on. Then, viola, you're in the same boat as 85% of the Transcend workforce. Unless of course you know someone personally on the mgmt. team.
lousy mgmt/response, unprofessional.
I bet MGMT gets big bonuses for cutting costs.
I'd bet the ranch that more erosions are planned and they will keep on as long as they can find newbies frantic enough to have any job. Any MT worth a grain of salt, can find a better paying position in a heartbeat.
Man, are you wrong! I'm just one of the regular "Joes" here, not mgmt at all. nm
sounds like mgmt from 1 of the companies in message to me.
Mgmt - poorly written emails
I know those employed in mgmt in our field are probably very busy and have little time to spend making sure their emails to staff are perfect, but doesn't taking the time to do so set the example of what our business is all about? I know tons of threads have probably been started on this topic, but I am almost wondering if the email I read tonight was written by someone who even understands English very well! Could this be a sign of offshoring? LOL. I know that's harsh. It just irks me to read such garbage and at the same time being asked to do my job 150% faster with better quality. Ugh.
p.s. I am scared to death I made a typo myself in this msg, but hey this is a forum, not a message to my staff!
You sure as heck weren't in mgmt at TT because that is NOT how they operate.
TT top mgmt has answered 99% of my e mails. My sup 100% of the time.
I have only been lost in the cracks by management once. My supervisor has always answered me. But then, my mails are really short and infrequent. Only pertaining to PTO, a conference call or to ask about acct. specs. I just assumed that they have zillions of e mails so I keep it to a minimum. They have answered all the important ones for me. The one not answered was an HR question I could have gone to the vendor about.
They are great though on e mailing us, you have to admit. At least once every week top management tells us what a great team we are. At least that is what I receive. And they never forget to wish us a happy holiday. So I have no qualms at all.
(cont'd) mgmt always pushy and stressed out
Should add the usual disclaimer...No I am not mgmt - just another MT finishing her shift for the
night! I work out of Amherst as well, and the work is back-logged on many of our accounts. Again, I don't understand those who claim no work. We get daily emails listing loads of accounts, and nearly all of them are always full of work, if not out of TAT. Dozens and dozens of clients listed I never even heard of! So, just seems a mystery to me how, or why, some MTs "claim" to always have no work. Amherst sends mass mailings out 3 times a day, I believe, or at least 2 to ALL MTs - don't you read them? don't you get them? If you have no work, pick one of the dozens in the "red zone", and call your supervisor and ask to be put on a backlogged account. I have never been turned down a new account. Learn it - get on it and make it yours! If its often backlogged, Bingo! Now you have a good busy account!
Why would mgmt contact employees to explain the low volume,
if everyone is able to make as many lines as you do? BTW, I'm NOT the OP, just another employee sitting here waiting for work. Your statement was extremely condescending and rude to those of us who CAN'T make 20K lines because of low volume.
If you're referring to the 20K-line post, I am NOT mgmt...sm
I make this type of line count because I'm willing to work on different accounts and work extra when the need arises. I LIKE paying my bills, so I am flexible - and that, in this day and age, is on of the real keys. Nothing is as it used to be when work was consistent and pay was better, but I need to pay the bills. I have a great communication with my supervisor, and that is another key. If you don't talk to somebody about your problems or lack of work of whatever, it cannot be fixed. I don't care if I have to learn every acct the company has - I'm going to do that, because it will ensure that I can maintain a good line count at the end of the payroll period, thereby affording me a better check.
The basic fact is that working for a company is no different than any other aspect of your life. If it's not working for you, then you MUST make a change. Complaining about something will not change it - and ultimately you will spend your life feeling miserable - and trying to make other people feel miserable, too. I choose the opposite.
I've been at a multitude of other nationals and, for me and for now, this IS the company that I'm happy with and with whom I intend to stay.
You can go ahead and flame away - 'cause while you're sitting here typing nasty responses, accusing me of being mgmt, or making negative responses about Transcend, I'm working away. Now if that sounds "condescending" to you, TOUGH!
Than mystery jobs randomly picked by mgmt.
bonuses/weekend/night shift differential is much rather preferred by me in the Dallas office than those jobs picked at random by "who knows who".
