Does anyone have any comments on working for Medware?  Thanks!
Thanks for your input!! I'm job shopping and want to make a better decision this time.
Does anyone know what Medware is paying these days? They seem to have a lot of ads for help in transcription and for the Dictaphone platform.
medware pay

I went through their whole testing bit, got called twice for interviews, once with a guy and then once I passed the test, some lady called me.  They said I did well on the test, but they only offered me 7.5 cpl (5 yrs exp).  I need more than that so chose to not go with their company.

Medware for me
Love my account, direct deposit every 2 weeks and the insurance is affordable.  My supervisor is really cool and understanding, we get along great.  1 year and counting, hope for many more.  Good luck to you.
Hi! I just started with them last week and so far it has been really great. They are all really nice and I have had wonderful training. You get paid by the hour for the first 4 weeks so you have time to learn the system (which the system itself is excellent and extremely easy)Your rate is determined by experience so I don't know other than my own. I guess you have to ask them about the schedule, but mine is just what I need. The staff is very, very nice. I think you would really like it. If you will notice, there is tons of negative stuff about all the MT companies on this board, but Medware has a lot less negative than some of the others (I looked through it before I started.) I think you should try it.
I am with Medware
Easy platform, good pay, good people, flexible schedule. Just what I need.
Osi does and I think Medware nm
Has anyone out there worked for Medware?  I have gotten a job offer from them and just wondered how they are to work for.  Thanks for any help
Medware which one?
Which Medware are you all praising? Where is it located?
They are located in Florida.
Hi, am thinking about Medware.  How do you like it?  What is it really like.  Do they have a good training program.  I was very impressed with the marketeer.  He seemed very accommodating and willing to work with me.  Just wondering what the scoop is.  Thanks in advance
ty so much for your response. w/ so many companies out there unsure of what to do. I have been transcribing for 3 years and just getting my line count up. Plus being fairly new on the block was unsure whether I would fit in. Just how easy would it be for a fairly new comer to fit in. I need a little encouragement and a small amount of TLC, but just for a short time.
Does Medware pay for spaces, headers, footers, etc.
You probably should ask Medware
accurate rate. They are a very good company however. Good luck.
Medware pay
I had 16+ years experience and Medware paid me the same as a newbie because I didn't have my CMT, although I was considered a Level III transcriptionist.  Also, having your CMT, you are still maxed out on the pay.  I had heard that Medware wasn't really hiring anymore MT because they were outsourcing to India and they were only hiring editors or turning MTs within the company into editors.  At one time, they were a good company to work for.  I have been gone for a year so things may have changed.  This was just my experience with the pay scale. 
Medware is still hiring MTs. Only one area of the company deals with the Indian transcription. Everything else is still done by US transcriptionists. There are 6 levels of pay -- level I, II, and III for both certified and non-certified MTs. A recruiter could better give you an idea what those rates are.

... a happy MW employee
Looking for opinions on Medware from current employees. Can anyone tell me how many transcriptionists they have, are they flexible at all, do they offer part-time, positives and negatives? Most importantly, are you making any money with them? Thanks.
They sound almost too good to be true! How many ESLs do you have to do, on average?
Does anyone have any info on the job posted today by Medware for MTs with ExText experience? Considering applying and am wondering if anyone who works for them part time can tell me if there is any flexibility with them, line rate range, pay for headers, spaces, etc., and can anyone "in the know" tell me what account this is starting up? Also some general info on the company - how many MTs they have, do they offer any benefits at all for part time? Thanks in advance!
Medware pay?
Anyone know approximately the starting pay at Medware for IC and employee?  Does anyone know if they are hiring for psychiatry or therapy accounts? 
Medware or OSI
Offered jobs by both, appreciate any help.
Medware or OSi
I worked for OSi for 2 yrs and recently left to join Medware. Medware is a better run company. Their people are more professional and knowledgeable. It is just a great place to work!!

There have been a lot of OSi people leave and go to Medware in the past month.

I tested for Medware 2 weeks ago and have not heard from them. I know I did well on the test. Anyone know if they are really hiring?
Anyone know what Medware


Medware ICs

Hi! Does anyone happen to know if you can switch from employee to IC at Medware?

Also, if you are an IC, what time frame do you have to do your work?


I applied for Medware today.  Any information would be most appreciated
Medware is top rated by AAMT because most of Medware's management happen to be AAMT officers or former officers - brings to mind The fox guarding the henhouse.

I don't rave about them. I did work for them for awhile, but their platform was not my cup of tea, nor do I agree with their outsourcing.

I agree - the management nominates themselves and then they vote for themselves. Medware has some very active members in AAMT.

Medware also offshores in a very big way. You can run a check on Google for Medware India to see for yourself.

Medware does.  Also, just saw that Cymed offers it but I don't know anything about that company.
Medware or MDI-FL...
Has anyone worked for both companies and could tell me which is better?  Trying to decide which company is better.  The offer is about the same for both, benefits seem about the same, so just trying to decide who is the easiest to get lines with, easiest to work with, etc.  I have looked through the archives and good and bad about both, so not sure what to do.  Thanks in advance.
Medware or MDI-FL (sm)
I have never worked for MDI-FL but have heard good things about them.

I now work for Medware and am very happy there. The system is great. My Team Lead is the best when it comes to being flexible...he is very understanding, also has a great sense of humor which is a must in my book! It is great working with some of the most professional leaders in this industry.

I do believe I have found my home.

You have talked to both companies, so compare and make the best decision you can. Good luck!
This sounds like typical Medware management - superior, arrogant, sarcastic.
Medware, Inc.
I would encourage you to call your recruiter. If there is anything that I can do for you please do not hesitate to give me a call. 1-800-881-3131 x371.
You might want to try MedWare. -nm
Anybody currently working for Medware?  How are they for cpl, feedback, part-time?
I work for them - not much difference between them and the rest of the big companies. Not happy. 7 cpl - ALL letters, most less than 1 sentence long, but DIS takes longer than the letter (the part you DONT get paid for) - doc list is Excel spreadsheet - clumsy - cc's clumsy and stupid - lots of server downtime - feedback good for first 2 weeks - then so-so. Constant push.
I was perusing the archives and noticed a conversation about Medware and sound quality. I nearly fell off my rolling chair! Same thing is happening to me - bad sound quality and they say it's my machine (really? how come the sound is fine with everything else?). This company never gets the bum rap it deserves. Consistent work? None for 2 days, very little since Thanksgiving and constant server problems. And the quality lie? 2 -3 minutes is excessive time researching and Medware won't pay for it - that is directly from the horses mouth. I don't see Medware as being any different than Medquist. They are both in the same low league. I am disgusted. We are getting ripped off and so is the client.
I agree with the poster below - Oh, please.
That's nice that you are content there, but they have room for a lot of improvement.

Their platform is not user friendly at all and their sound varies widely in quality. Their built-in text Expander actually impeded production and I had to purchase Shorthand in order to make any decent money at all.

BTW, I have over 20 yrs MT experience.

Yes, to Medware ---

And I'm doing a pretty heavy ESL account.



I worked at Medware for 2 years, with 15 years critical care experience.

My primary account was outsourced while I was spending my own time creating templates for it, not knowig the account was in the process of being outsourced..  As the work dwindled, I inquired, only THEN to learn the account was being transcribed by Medware India.

Medware India...ever see that in any of their ads or hiring information? 

And for a company to receive an American Employer of the Year award while outsourcing work, to me is professionally offensive. 

 If for whatever reason one is not happy, leave.  If happy, stay.  It is as simple as that.  I left...

Any current info?  Are lines easy to get?  Normals?  Pay?  Benefits?  Thanks.

Any information on Medware and what they are like to work for??

Can you be more specific about why you like Medware...Thanks in advance.


thanks for your reply. What else can you tell me about them. I was offered a position for part time and I am considering taking the position. Is there platform easy or clumsy? Do you get a lot of ESL dictators? Thanks in advance.  Lucy

Not long at all, about one week. I havent really seen any bad reviews on this company, so I am really considering them.
Good luck to you!!
Medware does have quite a bit of ESL
dictators particularly on their ER accounts and on the acute care. Some of the clinic work is not heavy with ESLs but the ERs are.

Can you tell me if they use MS Word or WordPerfect?  I would like to use Smartype for WordPerfect 5.1.  However, my current company uses MS Word with a size 10 font.  It's so small that you have to increase the page size to 150%.  But when you do this, the right-hand side of the page gets cut off.  Plus you have to remember to put it back down to 100% when you're done with the job.  Their word Expander has NOTHING in it.  When I asked about that, I was told that way, the MTs can personalize their own program.  How stupid.  You can personalize SmarType all you want PLUS you already have thousands of words already loaded.  The Word Expander they use has ZERO words loaded, so you spend half your time stopping and making your shortcuts and THEN have to be sure they are spelled correctly.  So if you're not sure of the spelling, you have to look it up, and this takes MORE time.  So I really am not happy with this company.  The people are nice, but nice doesn't help me make 1000 lines a day.  The tech guy is going to try to load SmarType for MS Word, but he told me there is no guarantee it will work because of the typing platform they use.  So now I'm looking for a company  that has a good number of normals (this one doesn't), will let me use SmarType and will not have the problem of running off the right-hand side of the page.  Maybe I'm asking for too much?  I don't think so.  Their doctors do not dictate clearly.  There honestly is not one good thing to say about them except that my supervisor and the tech guy are nice.  But that doesn't bring in a decent paycheck.
