    Webmedx fits that bill, great company, great benefits, great pay and always on time. NM
    Started small; great company. Rapid growth; not so great company
    First year I was there was like heaven. Then the big growth spurt when they hired managers from another company (that I had run away from before because of their bad management) and let them kind of take over. Although I have no proof it was as though I got 'bumped' by these new people when they came in and I lost a good account, good manager, etc. My paycheck went down every month lower and lower, and it became harder and harder to make my minimal lines. Having any kind of advocate was nonexistent.

    It depends on you and what kind of MT you are. Seems to me there are pretty much 2 types...

    Sports like basketball where you have the pros who play with finesse, and then you have street players who think it is all about physical strength, period. More and more the physical strength is winning but the art of the game gets lost more and more...

    As in this country where there are almost 2 sides now, those with intellect and thoughtfulness, and those who think the only way to be strong and be a leader is to beat up everyone who does not agree with you...and force your will on others.

    Suffice it to say in my opinion WMX changed its philosophy of the way it treated employees and lost its heart when it grew, and it was literally almost overnight...

    If you are a mass producer who has no care of what it takes to make money, if you are a 'street fighter' then it would probably be for you because you WILL have to fight for everything. Fight for the right account, fight for lines, fight to be treated fairly, etc. If you appreciate MTing for the art of MTing or have any kind of joy for the profession, my guess is you will not make it there very long...

    This is happening all throughout the what used to be called profession. Seems to happening all through everything these days. Humanity and heart are being pushed down to the bottom...
    Great company, great boss, great account!!!nm
    Yes, some really great, talented people have left, and that's
    always a danger sign to me. If upper management keeps being mentioned as a reason these good people are leaving, somebody should take notice. This company seems to be hemorrhaging talent and keeping an incompetent, power-hungry suit. It's hard to know whether to leave or stay. I would not recommend them to anyone right now.
    You are pathetic! I have a great life, loving family, work for a great company.
    You might want to fix that.

    You really don't have to shout (angry person), but yes you are wrong!!

    That is my last word to you!

    I will add that getting a great pay check every other Friday from Medware really puts a huge smile on my face.
    Bravo! Great post. I left TT but I will always speak very highly of them.
    Agree with this. Some lucky ones have great accts. Mine were awful, so I left. nm
    It's a great company -- lots of work and great pay. sm
    Web site is www.mditrans.net.  If you need anymore info, feel free to ask. 
    Axolotl has AWESOME, AFFORDABLE insurance.  Family plan medical and dental costs a little over $300.00 MONTHLY.  They also pay for family plan vision in its entirety.  STD, LTD, 401K with match and flex spending account, great PTO and HOLIDAY pay.  OH and paid downtime in the case you run out of work, which doesn't happen often!!! 
    Great company, great boss....

    I use to work there.  The dictators on my account were really good.  They use Emdat/Inscribe.  Pay on 1st and 15th by direct deposit.

    Great company. I've been recommending this company for a long time.
    Great little company..I worked there for a short time, IC, and pay always on time, great owner too!
    I had good dictators, they use FTP, and I had a 12-hour window to return the work.
    Just left a company that kept doing that to me!
    I also worked on 4 accounts with VERY different account specifics. I wonder if we are talking about the same company here? Also, I was shifted from one work type to another. Then I got thanked for helping out. The only people it helped out was them because I had to work my fingers to the bone to achieve their line count requirements! Each day literally became a marathon. When I inquired about the need to have me on so many different accounts I was labeled hard to work with and was treated very rudely. I am not a newbie MT either - I have more than 6 years of solid experience in many different work types, acute care, and multispecialty clinics. There are better companies out there. Good luck to you.
    That's why I left the O company
    Has anyone left MDI-MD for another company and.. sm
    been glad they did?  I have worked at MDI-MD for about 5 years and feel they have overhired as my accounts are often low on work.  Keep seeing good things about Keystrokes and Transtech (and sure other good companies exist) and have wondered if I would be better off there or somewhere else. If anyone has advice and doesn't want to post here please feel free to email me. TIA! 
    Amen tto that. If you left the company,
    how long did it take for them to send you the stuff to return the equipment? I resigned on 2/25/06 and still have their equip. Have emailed supers with no response. I have been toying with the idea of emailing the CEO. I wonder how long you have to keep it before it becomes yours? Any lawyer out there who knows the answer to that???? TIA
    I left a company for asking me to help compile such
    How would anyone yank my chain when NO ONE knew I was resigning from my current company (had not yet turned notice) and NO ONE knew I had accepted a position with a different company? Please explain that one to me as you seem to know quite the Merriam Webster of the MT world.
    This sounds like the company I just left!
    I wonder if the MTSO has changed the name of the company? If it is the same company, I think you are wise to drop them and do it ASAP.
    I left a company as soon as got email saying they were
    I left a company when they started doing this.
    I was getting all of the crap work and it took about an hour just to get 100 lines. To make things worse, this company didn't even pay for spaces. Needless to say, I left and went to another company. Pooling is never a good thing.
    I left that company earlier

    They have no communication. I arranged to have a week off as I was moving. This was totally arranged and okayed. Then they took me off the books because they said I did not report to work and had abandoned my job. I explained the situation, and they had to sign me back on with direct deposit, etc. Evidently somebody did not communicate with somebody else in the company. I quit.

    I am in a wonderful job now and am glad I went elsewhere. 

    I agree with you!!! I also left a big company for this one and
    it's been just a few months and I love it. I don't dread work anymore!!!! No regrets.
    I am in the same boat, too. I left a company...

    that was always late with a paycheck to work for a new company.  The new company was okay but my hospital was so huge that learning every doctor put me behind the curve.  I tried VR because I thought it would help me catch on faster, and it did, but I am finding my overall VR production is still only 20 to 30% over what I averaged straight transcription at the other company (and they were shorting us 15% on our lines). 

    I am also extremly frustrated at having to do all those admnistrative things.  Looking up CCs, looking up patient demographics, changing work types, looking up who signs off on this resident, looking up the spelling of this doctor 7 states away...come on. 

    I just left a company after 10 years, making only
    I noticed that when I left DSG to work for another company...
    my lines increased dramatically...don't know if it is because of the ESLs on the account or what, but lines were so hard to get.
    I just left a company due to lack of work, Monica.

    Disillusioned....Sue's description sounds like the company you just left
    except for the rental fee, which they JUST changed recently, and even then it was higher than the one Sue quoted.  I still say you got a much better deal with Amphion.
    I left them to go with another company using the same platform and I made tons more..
    It has to be in their line counting and they must not pay for spaces, headers, or footers even though they claim to. I did not know the difference until I switched company. I was shocked that I made in 2-3 hours what I struggled to make in 8-10 at Focus.. As far as I am concerned, they are a huge rip-off and on top of that, they have their Indian QA people checking your work, and if it does not meet their standards, you pay is docked. It was quite disturbing to say the least.
    Ditto. Please don't buy a computer for work from this company. I left (sm)
    this company because of lack of work.
    Small company GREAT COMPANY

    Axolotl is a WONDERFUL company with great benefits and competitive pay.  We have maybe 100 MTs but are growing rapidly.

    It's in the left column under the Company board or the link is inside

    Left end of July for a company paying more and I set my own hours. Much less stress too. (nm)
    I left MQ after years and went with a highly rate company on this board (sm)
    my account has dried up and I am constantly out of work now...same with backup account.  I like the company I'm with and don't want to leave but I HAVE to have a steady account.  I realize there are slow times of the year but on this account they have overhired and now it's low a lot of the time.
    Wonderful company!!! Left for personal reasons. Would go back with no hesitation! nm
    Great company!
    I am very happy working for MDI. I have worked for them full time for a few years and part time before that. It is a great company to me and it's very easy for me to be able to call and talk to my TL or anyone above her if I have an problems/concerns/questions. There are lots of negative postings about them on this site, but have not had the bad experiences that they have had. My experience has been nothing but positive!!!!
    Great company! (sm)
    Good pay, good accounts, flexibility, best MTSO I have ever worked for in my 20 years as an MT.  Just started with them a little over a month ago, & couldn't be happier!  IC status only, though, but that's not a problem for me.  Anything else I can tell you, just let me know  
    They are a great company!
    QA'd their work for a short while, but it was a second job and couldn't keep up working 2 jobs, so quit at JLG.  They are a small, family-like company.  The owner is an MT and has had offers to sell out to the big boys. but she loves her company and her employees and will not sell out.  If you have a chance to work for them, you will not be sorry! 
    GREAT company...sm

    They are friendly staff as stated, pay is good, but no benefits. But the pay, plenty of available work, and understanding of the company makes up for lack of benefits.  I have had family illness over the past several months and they have been understanding.  I feel bad for not being as dependable as I was when I first started, but they have really hung in there for me, so I am hoping to return the favor and help them out as much as I can. GREAT company.  You cannot go wrong.  I was thinking about looking for another job because they have no benefits, but they are just too good to risk that.  So, never again, will I even think about that.  You will not go wrong with them.  I have been with them almost one year and they are as nice as they were from the beginning!

    Great company.
    I actually wanted to work for them, but I failed their online quiz.  The question lines and answer boxes were so close together, I am sure I marked the wrong boxes just because it was impossible to differentiate one question from another.  I have been an MT for 18 years.  I knew the answers to every one of those questions, except for maybe 1 or 2 I was confused on.  I don't know if it was timed or not.  If it was timed, maybe that is why I failed.  I did the test in between phone calls.  Good luck with that!
    Great company

    I have worked with them since the company started and they have been GREAT!!  I can give you names of LOTS of other MTs  that agree.

    you will see bad listings about them on here but think about the people that it is from--fired and mad people.

    AccuStat pays on time and the people are just great to work with.....I can't express that enough!!!

    great company
    AccuStat is a great company in my opinion.  They know your name and do not treat you like a number.  Their pay is on time.  Their managers are great and their accounts are good too.  They are simply a great company to work for.
    TRS seems to be a great company
    I was slated to start with them. I accepted the position and then decided not to go with them because I could not afford to live with the salary offered. I spoke with Kathy after I decided not to take the position and she seems very honest,polite,and interested in the MTs. I did not have a bad experience, I just declined the position because I could not afford to live with the salary offered.
    Great company
    I have been with Meridian since October. I get wonderful feedback, great QA people. Pay is every 2 weeks and very fair. I am on MedRite and I love it here.
    They are a great company sm
    Super flexible scheduling, very nice people to work for, and I always have work. I use EX Text, and I personally do about 7000 lines every two weeks. I do not remember what the line requirement is. I do not know if they are hiring, but I am extremely happy here.
    Great company.
    They are very employee friendly. I know they are going through some management changes, but show me a company that does not. The owner is an excellent person to work for and takes care of his employees as long as you do what is asked. I would recommend it highly if you are offered a position!!
    Great company
    I have also been there several years. No complaints.
    Good QA people. Steady work.
    Pay on time. Good people to work with and to work for. I have been to their office and met all the QA people. Have met the owner personally.
    great company
    This a great company. What is the sm
    use of saying run, run without giving any other info? It's a waste of a read. I worked for TN and they are wonderful people and always paid on time. The best place I have ever worked. I left due to health reasons.
    Great company
    I have been with them since March, they are a very fair and honest company to work for.  I have had no problems with them.  Absolutely no complaints here
    DSG great company
    DSG is a great company to work for--I have been there for a couple years...I believe it must be one of the best!
    Great company....

    and NO I am NOT management, or recruiting, or anything like that.  I am an MT....been working for them for quite awhile.  They are an excellent fit for me.

    Lots of ESLs - yes.  IC only - I think so; check with them about it though.  Direct Deposit - always correct and always on time.  Platform - it is their own and is Word based, so if you are familiar with Word you would be all set.  Managers are very kind and helpful, answer questions almost immediately.  QA - I have seen some posts on this board that were negative about their QA but I really dont have much contact with QA.  I am familiar with my accounts, I do my work, and they leave me alone and put my paycheck in my checking account every other week.  I also like that they do not beg and plead and hound us to death to get work done when it gets backed up.  Yes, they let us know; yes, they send out emails; yes, they say they STILL need help; but there are no phone calls or IMs or *guilt*.  It is just - if you can help, please do, we need you.  Also, the workflow group are great.  They seem to have a handle on their job and do it well.

    But no company is perfect.....so......what would be the cons to FN?  Running low on work.  This seems to happen when they are ready to take on new accounts.  It SEEMS that they hire in anticipation of new accounts and put new hires on present accounts until the new accounts start dictating.  Work may be low at those times.  BUT THIS IS ONLY MY IDEA...I dont know if that is what actually happens.  I think the last time I was low on work was, maybe last Spring. 

    Also, the work seems to get slow the weekend before we turn in our invoices.  I think MTs are trying to get in their lines for the pay period.  I dont know for sure, of course, but that is MY GUESS.  So what I do is make sure I get my lines in the Friday before the weekend before invoices so that is there is little work that Saturday and Sunday, I can take time off and not sweat it.

    It works for me.
