In Reply to: Is there some reason we can't come right out and name names? - KSMT

hostile emails or lawsuit threats from peeved off people. One MTSO threatened to sue me and MTstars when I posted the truth about their documented unfair business practices.

Do you really think owners have time to come on this board to know there are any concerns? sm
If you really and truly believe they are offshoring, ask them. Tell them you have concerns and that you have heard they were outsourcing!. I know for a fact that L is still quite involved in the company and believe me, they have hired new people; people who just couldn't cut it and were not good enough to put out quality work; QT has always, always prided themselves in quality! If an MT can't do quality work, why keep them? It's a waste of time and money! I just know one thing, I will do my all this week to help get us back in TAT. You do what you have to do!
Aren't MTSOs the owners? Well if owners of MT companies
don't want to work for that MTSO. There should be some idea of what is coming at us.
The "former owners" are the current owners. QT has not been sold (sm)
and I was told it will not be sold and is trying to get new accounts.
Former QT owners? I thought they were original owners
Maybe if this deal loses clients, I can work out an at-home deal with one of my current accounts.
Or else get a McJob at McDonald's flipping McBurgers....
I think that they were the owners but not very
friendly. The other services seemed to be having fun but they did not. Makes you wonder what's going on ?????
owners are not MTs.
are nice but the voice files are very hard to hear!  Pay is on time as well.  I had to use express scribe to transcribe.
You do know that the owners
of MSJ are accountants? (Unless they sold the place sometime in the last few years.) There really shouldn't be any problems with payroll since they are bean counters by trade.
Owners are not MTs and they have
It is probably one of the OSi owners posting
Right on! Too bad more supes and owners don't - (sm)
check out this website and see what the world of MT is REALLY like. Most of 'em are too busy shopping for that new Lexus or other expensive bauble to know or even care what life is like for the folks that have to work under them. It's kind of funny, where I used to work they had a very hard time attracting new hires, and even retaining the old pros they already had! (Word DOES get out, doesn't it?) Especially now that we have amazing networking & communication tools like the Internet and MT Stars. If I were a manager in charge of MTs, you better believe that I would care how they viewed their jobs, and how my organization looked to others, and I would be reading the med. transcription websites. I now work for a company that you never see discussed in a derrogatory manner on this board, and in fact that had a lot to do with why I chose to work for them, rather than the many companies you read about in here. So MT managers, start treating your employees like the money-makers they are, instead of like dirt, and watch your companies (and your profits) grow.
The owners of MW are all in FL, so how is this true? sm
The owners are 1 family, all in FL. If someone is in new hampshire, she can't be one in the same as medware. I don't know how Medware could give anyone any work, there's no work for the employees.
PMT and Keystrokes owners
Thank you so much for the clarification! Jill was great to work for and very knowledgeable about transcription. I saw Yorkville and wondered if she owned Keystrokes. Now, I know how to get in touch with her to say HI!
LER stands for the owners name....
Yes, the owners are accountants,
but I had mistakes in my pay and the line counter cheated, i'm sure of it........
Yes, however, the owners of the company
also have the freedom to do with their money as they see fit. Even though they could put it back into the company or give a raise to their employees, there is no law that says they have to do so. Waste or not, it is their money.
If the owners name is Lisa please see message
She is a really nice person, runs a great company and pay is always on time.  Wish I would have stayed working for her.  Probably one of the only jobs I regret not sticking with.
MS in FL has owners who are control freaks and whatever happens
There is one person there (still after 4 years) who would sell you down the river if he thought it would make him look better to the owners but tell you to your face how wonderful you are, unless you have the putzvah to politely debate the issue. Then his boxing gloves come out and the verbal abuse begins. It really is slave labor there. I've been in the office, I've talked with the owners. I know things will never change there unless they start losing clients, but the clients they currently have are so grateful ANYONE will transcribe their reports, they STAY with MS!

And that, my dear, is why nothing changes at MS in FL.
You won't see some of the bigger ones here. I know for a fact that the owners of sm
KS do not come on here anymore. I went to one of them a few weeks ago, and she told me not to get worked up about the posts on here, that not every company is for every person, just just like every MT is not a good fit for every company.

I just emailed her with the request put here today, and she responded that she would not answer any posts on here; every time in the past that she did, things were twisted around and turned ugly, both with the bashers and the cheerleaders, that MTs with questions should contact the companies directly.

She also asked me if I needed more work as I seem to spend a lot of time obsessing about these posts, which really threw me for a few seconds. On thinking about it, she's right.

Ask Accupro. The owners of that company
Davis Transcription new owners?
Hi, I had heard that Davis Transcription was in the process of being sold.  They have contacted me for a position, but was wondering if there is any current information on whether or not the company is being/has been sold?  Thank you
If the new owners allow foreign posts,
at the top of the JobSeekers page.  It's the second listing on it.  It very clearly states no MTs outside of the US.  I realize it dates pre-new owners, but they should remove that if they are going to allow such postings.
Keystrokes does not. The owners are very vocal about this. nm
That is what all business owners do, Misty.

Their employees provide a product.  The business owner makes a profit.  The employees make a paycheck.  If you don't like the size of your paycheck, find another employer, which you have stated you are doing.  

Here is something I wonder:  Would you be okay making 6 cpl if your employer had no jewelry, took no vacations, and her husband had to work too?  Would you be okay with your situation just so long as she was struggling too? 

You still have not said how you are being mistreated by this lady. 

Have any of your company managers or owners (sm)
Have any of your company owners or the managers sent out politically-charged emails company-wide? I was just curious as to whether this is a common thing, since my company owner has sent several out. It's bothersome, to say the least. Work is the one place where I feel I should be completely safe from the political circus.
Why blame MTSO owners?

What's so hard about that?  If you don't like being an employee, then become a business person and charge the big bucks.  Many of you probably have never even managed your own accounts, but all ready to say how you are underpaid for what you do.

This career is based on production. Get used to it. Paid days off?  Who gets those?  Even if you do, it is probably a smidgen of what you would make if you worked as an employee that day.

Have fun fighting AHDI as well.  I'm sure their hands will be in the till. 

How do you know that the owners are enjoying the profits?
If she or he is, great. That's the reason you go into business. Personally, I would not want the stress or the responsibility. With this economy getting worse, business owners are taking on the stress. They can keep it.
the company (the owners), men, are lawyers...
check it out, it is even on the website.
The owners at Keystrokes have other plans. They want to be sm
as big as Spheris or Transcend but still stay the way they are. I talked to the owner last week and to another manager about something unrelated and the subject turned to MDI-MD. The owner said that at this rate, they'll grow just from the MT's and customers who don't want to be part of the offshore trend. They won't go overseas and have no plans to sell for at least several years. They just bought a platform, are adding offices to the office building and plan on staying. She did say that she thinks that a lot of the smaller companies won't survive the changes in healthcare so they need to grow to stay in business.

Talk to her. You'll be surprised how easy she is to reach and talk to. I was. I was nervous when I called to talk to my manager and the owner answered the phone. She ended up helping me and chatting for a while. I was impressed, which is a first for me.
well I was lucky, the base rate is 6 but my mom used to know one of the owners
and they will get me in the promotion for the QA department. They said that they like to give the jobs to the new girls because it is exciting and they are right about excitement. I think it just helps to know the right people and I really do appreciate it. They are all so friendly. And the operations lady and in charge of radiology is Pepper, and Flo is the manager of QA. Just call them and they can give you more information about pay etc. The phone number is 1-866-552-1515

So glad you got paid!! If the owners and bosses come here

to read what is being said...well... I think that is sad.  I get a picture of them sitting at their desks laughing about how difficult they can make our lives just on a whim.  Maybe I am wrong but why did they wait until you were at your wits end over this?  Sad stuff.



shouldn't the owners have made it a point to ask
when I switch banks or accounts and I'm not responsible for the lives of many other people.

~~>scratching my head
This field has the worst business owners. nm
Sten-Tel is the company that has many, many owners/branches. nm
Medical Transcription Service Owners can put themselves
I know you mean medical transcription companies, was just kidding around, and, no, I don't know of any.
What does that have to do with MT? I don't care how the owners spend their money. sm

You obviously need professional help.  My paycheck is always correct and on time and I am pleased with my pay.  Even IF the owner is a big gambler and spends her money on slots (which I don't believe), WHO CARES?

You really should find something healthier to obsess about.

And who cares if the owners are enjoying the profits???
It's their business anyway! Are you saying if you owned your own business you wouldn't enjoy the profits WHO WOULDN'T. Please. Keystrokes is a super company and the CEO, managers, co-workers, everyone is awesome!
Actually it is Palm Harbor, owners live in Oldsmar.
Sten-Tel is a tranny franchise. Different owners, all run differently, different pay, but still
And if the owners are gamblers, who cares? I'm glad you entertain yourself.

MDI owners email, said door open for emails sm.

So did anybody take her invitation to email her?  Curious.  I am not an MDIer but have been following the posts. see original post pasted below.

MDI-MD MT on 2009-07-29

I am hoping that all MTs for MDI got the email sent out this morning by MDI's owner. She is trying to keep us all informed and reassured. I have read posts over the past few weeks that MTs are out of work or really low in work. I, too, have experienced the same thing. Ask for more work in another account or specialty, even if it means going back on QA to cross train into something new. She says the work is abundant so we have to find out where. She also is going to hire 40-50 more MTs for new accounts starting in 30-60 days. Jump in early and see if perhaps you could share in some of these new accounts. I plan to do just that. She says her door is open for emails, so let's email her personally and skip your TL, as they may not know all the details yet. Good luck everyone and hang in there!

The owners aren't the problem, it's the current management. Sell THEM!!!! nm
I worked for them a year or so ago. Good company. Owners a little quirky at times, but set sm..
set accounts so can build speed with repetition.  Pay on time and treat you very decent. 
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.

Thank 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
Okay, here's the deal...
I am a Transcender myself. I have just put in my notice, but in hindsight, wondered if I was being fair. I was becoming disillusioned about certain things and could not decide if it was just my perception and if I was the only one who noticed or if I was doing something wrong that I wasn't getting the same benefits as some others and wanted to know what others thought.

I think what I've come up with here is that it is a combination of both - that at times, I put all I had into it and didn't get much in return and at times, I could've put in more. Live and learn, I guess.
I was up the next day. It's not that big of a deal.
I don't know where you were going with this post, "In the know," as it's hard to tell if you're commiserating, bashing V, or accusing her of something. Sounds like maybe this is something between the two of you given the tone, but I'm going to post this anyway.

Dunno why. Hope you're both on good terms!
