Here is the good, the bad and the ugly. sm
I left KS a few months ago after having a near nervous breakdown. I had too much going on in my life and thought that it would be better to go work in a hospital.

The Good: They are growing, have very stable accounts and keep all their customers. Pay is on time and there is direct deposit. The rules have become clear in what is expected of you. They are very personal.

The Bad: The insurance is terrible and expensive but I heard they are getting BC/BS in the fall for sure. The pay used to be late here and there for a few days. It is fixed now and has been for a very long time. The growth caused some changes that did not work and more changes were made to correct the problems caused, which seemed like chaos from the outside looking in.

The Ugly: They went through some terrible growing pains a few years ago and have been dodging bullets from former employees. There were late checks and no direct deposit. There was not a lot of work because they overhired.

The diagnosis: Once they got over the hump several months ago, things evened out and have been for a while. I want to go back but I'm afraid they won't take me.

How do I know all this? My best friend still works there and is very, very happy. I made a mistake leaving but now my life is on an even keel. I made a lot of money there.
DRC good, bad, ugly?
Any info i.e. are they good to work for or anything would be appreciated.
99% good, No Bad, No Ugly ... sm
Except for a short period of time when work ran low on one account only my experience has been 99% good. No place is perfect, but I have absolutely no complaints. The people treat me like a human being, I love the platform, the sound quality is great, they pay the long distance bill, the benefits are superior. Best move I ever made.

the good, bad, and ugly

I was wondering if anybody out there would be willing to give the good and bad about what company they work at, or used to work at.  I'm trying to figure out who it would be worthwhile to send resumes to and who I should just stay away from.  I'm interested in the management, scheduling, line requirements, pay rate, benefits, and provided equipment.  I'd greatly appreciate any info you have.  Thanks!

MTS of Texas..the good, the bad, and the ugly..sm
Good:  Pay on time, but the amount is almost always incorrect.  Bad & Ugly:  Pay by the minute.  Owners will tell you it equals out to be the same as being paid by the line.  NOT.  They use Meditech - a very antiquated version of it.  QA dept. is laughable (i.e., close enough, just leave it out).  Little to no IT support.  Owner recently sold the company to her son.

SoftScript (CA)GOOD & BAD?nm
Softscript is a very good company. sm
There has been a lot of changes in the last year which has made it a better company. As a newer MT, they have people to help with all my questions and I appreciate that. I would recommend them to anyone but you do have to be willing to work a scheduled shift.
My experience was UGLY. Very ugly.
Just keep your other job until you're sure....good luck.
Softscript is a good company to work for. sm
I have been with them for over a year.  I have had 1 late check (by 1 day).  As long as you do your work and work the schedule you give them, they will leave you alone.

SoftScript employees? Good money? Easy program? SM

I am interested in current information on Soft Script.  Is it possible to make good money ($40,000 year/full time). 

Is the programming easy? 

Sound quality good?  I was told it was good.

Thanks for all your help.  Please email me if you wish.  Thank you.

SoftScript employees? Good money? Easy program? SM
Although I realize this post is months after the original post, who in the world told you that MTs make $40,000 per year, especially at SoftScript? If you were talking to the owner (ewww!) or manager, they told you a bold-faced lie.


Just curious
We were not ugly

We were not ugly.  Stacy came on and stated that her two  most important factors in chosing a company was to have a computer provided and to have paid maternity leave and that was in CAPS.  She did not state that she was wanting to earn more PTO time and to use that, she wanted to be PAID after having a child.  At 4 hours per pay period that is 12 days a year and that is pretty norm for this profession.  Like I told Stacy, would you pay a babysitter or a nanny when they wanted six weeks off and you had to pull in someone to do their job so you were paying double and earning the same income.  It is really hard to provide benefits and a decent pay in this field.  Yell at me all you want, but the balancing act is very hard to do.   And like the prior poster also said, the companies change so often between merges, buy-outs, and out sourcing that what you sign on for in 2006 probably won't be the same in 2007 or 2008 for sure.  So if stability is what Stacy wants, I think that she needs to look elsewhere like a union job or a state/city or county position where it is spelled out in black and white what she will receive for the next three years.  We did not mean to make you feel bad but again, you posted several times about maternity leave and we are not mind readers you should have posted need to accrue PTO at a faster rate.   But we were not nasty or ugly and just stated the facts in this field.


bad and ugly.
Not sure why you have to be ugly
What was the purpose of the very nasty responses to this question?  I happen to agree w/ the original poster on this and see no reason for why you had to be so hatefuly in replying.  Did it make you feel better?  Do you talk to your employers, friends, families, etc., this way?    If so, I must say I feel sorry for you AND them.
Why do you have to be so ugly about it?!?!
I did not take it as this person ripping apart any company at all.  They were just stating what so many on this board have stated many, MANY times and in a sense they are correct.  It does not take much to set up an automated reply, trust me if I can do it, anyone can.  I just don't understand why people have to attack others on this board when they are simply just stating THEIR opinion, if you don't like it then stop reading and move on to another post, it's that simple. 
Ugly. Dont even consider it.
They profess to be a good fine Christian organization but they are FAR from it.
wow...it can get ugly in here....Well MTSO,

keep on speaking highly of your MTs, and probably best that she not visit this board.  It seems our profession has taken a negative turn somewhere along the road. 

Good luck with many more new MTs to come in the future.

Well, there must now be more than one of you, too! Cause there was an ugly hateful thread

about racial prejudice - really shocking, and someone named eyetype was proudly gloating and calling herself a string of things of which I can only recall old hateful bigot, but she was gonna get a new attitude, or something to that effect. Whole thing now deleted, conveniently, but I actually made a sticky note to remember who it was that said these horrible things.  Now that's a HUGE spot to reach in my world - SO BAD that I would put a sticky note anywhere!  I have never done that before in my life, and there are some ugly posters around these here woods!!  I wanted to be sure to steer clear of you and NEVER forget what you said, you or the other eyetype?

The QA is okay on my account, no ugly comments, but
sometimes when you have a specific question you don't get an answer or it takes days.  We have 5 QA people and each one had their quirks and interpretation, so while you may be doing something one way because one QA person said to, the next QA person may tell you to do it differently.   You never know who will be doing your QA at any given time so you stand a change of being wrong a percentage of the time and occasionally they have made changes that were not correct.  Not a major issue usually, unless you make a lot of errors, and then it affects your line rate. 
I am so sorry you got a bad impression. Sometimes things seem ugly when they are not..
The owner is the sweetest person I have ever worked for. The pay is good. If you want real info on them, please feel free to email me. MaryC_RI285@msn.com
They flame out so fast and so ugly.
