Is anyone on this board HAPPY with their job?

I know every job has its pros and cons, but there is so much negativity here that I do not think I will visit anymore. Many posters are griping about this company and that company. This one doesn't pay enough, that one offshores, this one has too many ESL accounts, that one does not have flexible scheduling. This one has a bad platform, that one docks my pay when I have a low QA score.
Many MTs seem to be too concerned about making that line count rather than producing quality work. It seems to me that if quality was most important from the get-go, then the line count and the income would go up. If you are willing to do some of the tougher work when starting out, it will not be so difficult for you later. If you are an experienced MT, then it should not bother you to have ESLs and so forth. You are experienced, you should be used to it by now.
And why are there so many FORMER MTs on this board?
Vent over for now. Fire away.

Well, I was happy for that overflow account coming on board
It is helping out some. No, I don't work on that account, but I did put in a full shift today.
In fact, the work is picking up on the account I work on as I had a total of 3 full shifts this week. Sure feels funny to work a full shift lately.
Happy New Year. May we all have happy home lives (sm)
and do whatever it takes to make our work lives work for us too.
MedQuisters, topics from the Company board are being moved to the MedQuist board. MQ posts on
the first page of the Company board will be removed to open up space for other companies to post. Enjoy the new Medquist board set up for you.
Are you the same condescending person the word board? I thought this was called "Company Board.
Didn't you post this on 03/04/06 on both the Company Board and the Hospital/Clinic MT Board?
This was moved from main board to company board. Replies don't transfer. nm
Right and told we should be happy we have jobs. Not too happy right now.
MDI Maryland HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY
THIS IS NOT MDI IN NY OR FL!!
I can't say enough nice things about this company; very flexible, you area a statutory employee. That means that they pay the employer portion of your SS. Great on time pay, tons of work. Do your lines and you are left alone! Expect to be responsible though. Pay for your phone; rent a Lanier or a C-phone if you don't have one; BayScribe platform. Anything that is a bit of an inconvenience is more than made up for. You will know to the minute how much you will make and how many lines you have typed. Check it out!
This is the Company Board. You should have posted on tech board. nm
there is a board for local talk. this is company board. thx
Posted on wrong board. Plz see Seekers board.
Sorry! Wrong board. Reposted on Main board. NM
There is a comedy board...put your remarks on that board. nm
Then this is the "Unprofessional" MT board. Pulic board,
I can't give you the name of the message board, but it is not a free message board (HINT). There
Monitor, I hope this post is okay.
You already have your own board. Now you want a board for the ones who leave??
Positive experience for me. Two years later, still happy, still busy, still meeting 300+ lines an hour. To each his own... guess it's jump on Diskriter is crap band wagon again day. On any given day, one company or another is being ripped a new one on these sites.
Probably one of the best. I'm happy there.
Happy with QT and FCM!!! nm
I am very, very happy at OSi. I left a company where I had been a IC for over 8 years and went with OSi as an employee. I have had no regrets. I think some people say QA is snooty because they expect a job to be done right and often times it isn't. We have access to all reports typed on our accounts and to tell you the truth, it's amazing how some of these MTs got hired.
I love the platform, pay is always on time and often incentives create huge paychecks. They are very professional and very flexible. No cons as far as I can see.
That's cause we are happy!!
Why do you want to bash anyway,let's talk about good things
I am happy too
There are some that still like Transcend. i understand that others have valid complaints, but not everyone there experiences the same issues. Some of us are really telling the truth when they say they are happy.
Happy for you.
I hope you like your new job. I have been contemplating applying with them myself but worried about their flexibility.
YAY!!! I am so happy for you. Out of (sm)
all the places I have worked, they really are the best!! For many,many reasons!!
Yep and happy about it!
Yes I make 1 cent less than what FOCUS would hire me on for at their top pay. In exchange I get to work with an amazing company who treats me with respect, knows who i am, who my children are, listens to what i have to say and so much more. It is worth the cent to work for a great company.
Happy to Mad?
so have you changed your attitude about MQ? this is exactly what MQ doesn't want to happen -- MTs being able to find out what is going on in different offices, wage-wise and otherwise.
ARE YOU HAPPY THERE?
Can you be hired on as SE?
Sweetheart, you have no business releasing your venom on me. You are one with the mental health issue. If you were indeed a "Happy OSI'er," you would not care what anyone else thinks or says about that company.
The fact that you can get enraged so easily when other people express opinions contrary to your own tells me that you are indeed in need of a little Zoloft, Xanax, or maybe just a good dose of reality. The rest of the world doesn't have to agree with you about anything. It does not make us dysfunctional, depressed, unhappy, or stupid. It just means we see things differently.
You're in for a rough ride in life if you are get so upset about others' opinions.
Yes Cbay is still around and going strong, more work than I can handle lately. They do hire US MTs. Everyone knocks them for sending work overseas but what company doesn't these days? I am very happy with them and pay is on time every 2 weeks! They pay my bills so I really wouldn't care if they sent the work to the moon!
Is anyone happy...
Please leave some info on this board if you are happy working for OSI. There is a lot of negative, but it may be some sour grapes too. I would like to hear some good input about the company. Thanks.
With OSi for about 3 yrs. Very happy now with
It is great working with true medical transcription professionals.
OSi is good for a laugh, though!
I am very happy with OSi
You will read a lot of negativity, but this is something that you will have to decide on your own. I am very happy there. Sure, they aren't perfect, but no company is. Let me know if you want more information.
I'm happy as can be -
Happy because . . .
I have 2 good accounts with steady work, love BayScribe, like my team leader, and good pay that is always on time. I do agree with the above poster who says she feels they may be overhiring on some accounts to keep them in TAT. However, I haven't seen overstaffing on my accounts (yet)!
Don't work on MANTIS but this company is really, really growing by leaps and bounds - even made the Fortune 500 top growing companies in the US. Great people (really nice) and a refreshing change from the Big Guys. Pay is generally $1.10 regular and $2.25 special - really nice accounts too. Check 'em out!
She's not alone. I'm happy there, too. sm
I'm FT and don't utiize the benefits, but I'm very happy at Spheris. My platform is easy to use, my supervisor is awesome, and the other girls are great. I don't have a hard time getting time off, and they pretty much leave me alone to do my work, but if I need help, they have terrific people at the help desk. Most Spheris employees are very happy here, but we just don't spend a lot of time of message boards.
Wake up MTs. Change is good. Why is everyone so afraid to go somewhere else? If you are not happy, you can only make yourself happy. LEAVE. Do not wait for these nationals or other MT companies to make you happy. They won't. You must do it yourself. I'm happy after the change I made. You can be too. Just go for it. What do you have to lose?
Also very happy with MDI-MD nm
Happy as an IC
Very happy with QT! nm
me too, happy
Another happy DSG MT!
So far, no complaints!
Happy at QT also
Happy with them
I go an 11 cent per 65-character line with spaces included job from them. Very flexible. The hiring process was a lot easier than going it on your own. I was VERY happy with my experience there...this was 2-1/2 years ago. Maybe things have changed. They get a one-time fee, not a portion of your line rate.
There are more than two happy at MDI but
Just because two of you have work does not discount that the rest of us do not. I struggled to get 1000 lines yesterday, had to keep dialing back in scrounging for work. And as others have said here, we have talked to Dorothy and MDI is aware that there is not enough work to go around. Maybe you two have an account that they did not put too many MTs on. Apparently on mine they did. I have been on this account for many years and I have always had work until the last several months.
I'm also happy there
Can't compare it to other companies as it is my first MT job, but I have been there almost a year and am quite happy. No desire to move anywhere else. Good training, and they attempt to communicate with their employees. Steady workload, benefits and pay reasonable.
I'm happy at JLG
Pay on time, tho by snail mail as they do not offer direct deposit. Account I am on is great with a low volume of ESLs. Great QA with samples provided, if requested. Flexibility, easy enough platform, not a lot of pt. demos.... I just LOVE it here.
happy, happy, joy, joy
Does anyone else find the endless e-mails showing how much work there is but to *have a geat day* annoying? How can I have a great day when I am struggling to meet my line counts because the work is so sparse?? Plus, e-mails to supervisors go unanswered yet again.
I am very happy with my job.
My paycheck, in my opinion, compensates me very well for my experience and my effort. I work hard, produce a quality job and have good production. My consistent reliability with my employer has paid off. I currently work for MQ.
Even the employer I recently left last summer was a great experience for me - that was Spheris.
I have had employers in the past that I was unhappy with but it mainly boiled down to some type of communication breakdown so that my expectations were not met.
I'm not the kind of person who bad mouths or exploits an employer, period. If I have problems with them, I handle that with the employer. I'm not interested in slamming anyone or any company. There are too many choices out there for any and all of us and I find it petty and small-minded to act in that manner.
I'm very happy with my job. sm
I work for Transhealth. It has the most of what I need in a job.
