Webmedx fits that bill, great company, great benefits, great pay and always on time. NM
Great company, great boss, great account!!!nm
System great, pay good, everything great, but most managers from old Edix, problems, poor people ski
when you are out of work, you are out of luck. If you are good at brown-nosing, are tough enough to be without any self-esteem, and have maybe money coming into the household on the side in case you tick someone off, then you may succeed, for a little while.

Don't ever ask questions or have problems with anything. Don't ever have a problem. Don't think you will have any control over anything you do, either.

A few 'good' managers remained when I left, but the new ones were all from the old Edix, and were completely into numbers, cared nothing for individual MTs...if there is work, you BETTER be working. If there no work, you will hear nothing, no one will help you.
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.
Oracle is great. Bayscribe is wonderful great line counts.
The trainer at OTI will always answer any questions about the platform and if you have any problems they have already worked them out, so just ask. Good luck!
YOG - Lots of work, great office staff, great money. NM
Loved Alltype! Great management and great accounts.
wah  -  i miss it there!
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 pay, great benefits for 11+ years..sm
I've just started with this great company (eMTS).  I have 11+ years of experience and I was started at .10 per line as a regular employee, not IC, with a huge sign-on bonus, full benefits, very nice people, and a good account.  So far, this is the best experience I've had in my years as a transcriptionist.  Unfortunately, I don't believe they're hiring more right now, but you could always check in with them, they're online at eMTS.com.  The management seems to really care and they work with you.
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.

That''s great and I've heard they pay great as well.
I just have heard a lot of adjectives for a few accounts - zinger, killer, impossible, etc., and I sure know I couldn't hack it there. But I'm sure they know what they are getting into when they sign up.
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.
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 pay rate on a 55 ccl, great lady to work for and work is not tough. sm

It is all IC work, although you still are expected to give a schedule if you are doing stat coverage.  Only major drawback is the big wait for your first check -- almost a month from the time of your first invoice.


Good luck!  

Wow - you all have given me great, great things .. sm
to think about and consider. I know myself well enough that I realize I don't always things through well enough before acting.

I do appreciate everyone's comments - both pro and con. This is exactly why I decided to ask for opinions. Thanks so much for not laughing at me and just saying that a hospital job is always the way to go. I'm pretty sure that I'll apply, and I already feel better prepared. You all are great!
Yep, they get great lines and great QA
yeah I see your point - because all the crap dictations go to everyone else :( Kind of makes steam come out of your ears doesn't it LOL
Not So Great

Yes it is the Transcend platform (one of them) but it's not so great.  It's terrible.  Makes working with the AIM system a cake walk! 

That's great!

Enjoy it while it lasts, and please come back next month this time and let us know how you're doing because you're in for a very rude awakening.

They are not that great anyway.
Getting 10 cpl is not so great when
you have to struggle to meet your lines and especially when there is no work. I am not the only one who has had a terrible experience as they have a high turnover rate with their employees and management staff. Obviously something is wrong....
Great. Thank you!

Sits on the fence a lot....not completely honset.

They ARE great
This is great!

This is so good that I passed it on to friends.  My attitude gets bad sometimes, and I wish it didn't, but sometimes they push you to the quick and then you sufferfor getting things off your chest.  That's not so good, is it, in this formulation.


How are they bad? I think they are great.
Little to none for me too. Used to be great. nm
If they are so great....
why are always advertising?  If there is that kind of turnover, maybe they're not so great and the cheerleaders protest too much. 
Great to me so far
I hope it stays that way, but so far, so good.
I think that's great...
I'm assuming you have a steady workflow.  My issue is, why hire me full time if you do not have enough work to keep me busy?  I'm looking elsewhere and will be leaving soon.  Do you work on more than one account?  I've asked for more work and was told It's unusually slow on all accounts.  Count your bleesings.
Yes...they have been great, but ...sm

Just a little concerned.  I have not been as dependable with my work schedule as before due to family illness.  It has been bothering me for several weeks.  I am going to talk with my supervisor.  I did not want to mention it to her, just ignore it, because I was afraid she would think that I was making excuses - but I really am not.  So, hopefully she will understand and hopefully I can show them that I can be depended on once again.  I really LIKE the company and would be very upset if I were to be let go.  I feel like this is the best place for me and things happened that I had no control over.  Does that make sense?  What would you do in a situation like that?  I hope I did the right thing.

I think they are great
I have been with SPI for quite some time now and it has been a completely positive experience. Everyone that I work with is great. My supervisor is the best. Great communication. The benefits are wonderful. My schedule is very flexible. I always have plenty of work. In my opinion, they are a great company to work for. Good luck to you if you choose to join SPI.
MDI-FL is a great co... (sm)
Should be - They are great at it. nm
I got the job!! With a great
lady to work with to boot.  Thanks so much for posting that on here or I would've never found it.  I owe you one!
wow-that's great
How do you stay motivated? I do about 375 to 400 but am trying to do more. I use ShortHand. Do you use an Expander and which one???
As before - I think their GREAT
Management is better now than it ever has been.  Four years ago it was a mess, a year ago it was a mess.  Finally they have someone competent overseeing the MTs and the work flow and things are wonderful.  I considered quitting several times before, never had any good enough offers to leave and heard horror stories about other companies too, so I stayed.  Guess what, I'm glad I did.  I know I am respected by my supervisor, she started as an MT too.  What the others said is true, they were horrible before, but now their not and unless he/she is there now, they would have no idea.  I am here now and love it.
was not great
but take it with a grain of salt - you may do just fine.
When you say great, is it more than $20/hr sm
I think $20 per hour is average. In my personal opinion, $25/hr would be great. However, some companies think $15-17 is great! I, however, do not. I can transcribe and make more than that! I do QA, but I am paid on production and average more than $25/hr.
Thats great!
Well, I'm glad they are able to pay the folks in a timely manner - when I worked there, it was horrible!  But that was some 2-3 years ago.
I'll gather all email addy's, compile a list and get with everyone regarding the specifics.

Have only experienced overly helpful and accommodating, overly friendly, etc. staff.  I am a part timer, wish I could be full time for this company.
Great Job

The best job that I ever had was MTing for a local company - part-time at home where I was making $80 (that's no typo) doing radiology and one in-house - same doctors where I made $25 an hour - with no production limits/contingencies, etc. However - made this working for a very manipulative Arabian man who owned a small transcription company.  I vowed 3-1/2 years ago when I left the in-house position that I would never work in-house again - guess what - the guy calls me up to go to lunch - he has a proposal for me (I have not worked for him since leaving the in-house position 3-1/2 years ago).  He needs help - but in-house at that hospital which is 35 miles from my house and on one of the worst Freeways in our area.  Needless to say - I turned him down cold.  Everything they say about that breed of people is true, I just had to learn the hardway.  I asked if he had anything that I could do at home, and he said no.  Later on during lunch he slipped up and said that he had put an ad in the paper for acute care at home and about how many resumes he received - never once did he offer that to me - he only wanted me for one thing - and at least that one thing was transcription.

I have learned my lesson - and will never go back to that company again.  Global Transcription.

Sorry but that's not so great IMO....sm
and thanks to those taking those lower wages, the starting rate of pay has gone down significantly across the board! Very discouraging.
PDA is great ! sm
I love working for these ladies.  Unfortunately, I have to leave due to tax issues in my state, otherwise I'd stay here forever.   Pay is always accurate and on time thru direct deposit. I had a great account that I loved.   Five stars for these ladies as employers!!!      PDA 
MDI is great..
I have never had problems with communication, payroll or my accounts. Feel free to e-mail me.
SPI is great
I work for SPI (formerly CyMed) for a year and love it. I have a great manager, great account and never ever run out of work. The accounts are great, and there really aren't even that many ESLs, at least not on my account. I have never had a problem. Good luck.
wow -- what a great

endorsement -- you are very fortunate and it's great to hear your experience.


Where is the MT with the great job
Who was going to wait a while and then post where she works to make sure it was true.  I am watching for your post.  Did I miss it? 
Not that great
Transtech is not that bad but they are not that good either. They have a suspicious way of line counting, there is very EXTREME cherry picking, and their management team will run and dodge your questions to no end. So although they are by far not the worse they are not very good either.
This is great. Thanks nm
