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...

Small company GREAT COMPANY
Axolotl is a WONDERFUL company with great benefits and competitive pay. We have maybe 100 MTs but are growing rapidly.
Small but growing company, great to work for
Really sharp owner, great QA.
Webmedx fits that bill, great company, great benefits, great pay and always on time. NM
Great company, great boss, great account!!!nm
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.
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 - A GREAT COMPANY WITH GREAT INSURANCE
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 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.
Great company. I've been recommending this company for a long time.
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.
I am very happy working for MDI. I have worked for them full time for a few years and part time before that. It is a great company to me and it's very easy for me to be able to call and talk to my TL or anyone above her if I have an problems/concerns/questions. There are lots of negative postings about them on this site, but have not had the bad experiences that they have had. My experience has been nothing but positive!!!!
Great company! (sm)
Good pay, good accounts, flexibility, best MTSO I have ever worked for in my 20 years as an MT. Just started with them a little over a month ago, & couldn't be happier! IC status only, though, but that's not a problem for me. Anything else I can tell you, just let me know
They are a great company!
QA'd their work for a short while, but it was a second job and couldn't keep up working 2 jobs, so quit at JLG. They are a small, family-like company. The owner is an MT and has had offers to sell out to the big boys. but she loves her company and her employees and will not sell out. If you have a chance to work for them, you will not be sorry!
They are friendly staff as stated, pay is good, but no benefits. But the pay, plenty of available work, and understanding of the company makes up for lack of benefits. I have had family illness over the past several months and they have been understanding. I feel bad for not being as dependable as I was when I first started, but they have really hung in there for me, so I am hoping to return the favor and help them out as much as I can. GREAT company. You cannot go wrong. I was thinking about looking for another job because they have no benefits, but they are just too good to risk that. So, never again, will I even think about that. You will not go wrong with them. I have been with them almost one year and they are as nice as they were from the beginning!
I actually wanted to work for them, but I failed their online quiz. The question lines and answer boxes were so close together, I am sure I marked the wrong boxes just because it was impossible to differentiate one question from another. I have been an MT for 18 years. I knew the answers to every one of those questions, except for maybe 1 or 2 I was confused on. I don't know if it was timed or not. If it was timed, maybe that is why I failed. I did the test in between phone calls. Good luck with that!
I have worked with them since the company started and they have been GREAT!! I can give you names of LOTS of other MTs that agree.
you will see bad listings about them on here but think about the people that it is from--fired and mad people.
AccuStat pays on time and the people are just great to work with.....I can't express that enough!!!
AccuStat is a great company in my opinion. They know your name and do not treat you like a number. Their pay is on time. Their managers are great and their accounts are good too. They are simply a great company to work for.
TRS seems to be a great company
I was slated to start with them. I accepted the position and then decided not to go with them because I could not afford to live with the salary offered. I spoke with Kathy after I decided not to take the position and she seems very honest,polite,and interested in the MTs. I did not have a bad experience, I just declined the position because I could not afford to live with the salary offered.
I have been with Meridian since October. I get wonderful feedback, great QA people. Pay is every 2 weeks and very fair. I am on MedRite and I love it here.
They are a great company sm
Super flexible scheduling, very nice people to work for, and I always have work. I use EX Text, and I personally do about 7000 lines every two weeks. I do not remember what the line requirement is. I do not know if they are hiring, but I am extremely happy here.
They are very employee friendly. I know they are going through some management changes, but show me a company that does not. The owner is an excellent person to work for and takes care of his employees as long as you do what is asked. I would recommend it highly if you are offered a position!!
I have also been there several years. No complaints.
Good QA people. Steady work.
Pay on time. Good people to work with and to work for. I have been to their office and met all the QA people. Have met the owner personally.
This a great company. What is the sm
use of saying run, run without giving any other info? It's a waste of a read. I worked for TN and they are wonderful people and always paid on time. The best place I have ever worked. I left due to health reasons.
I have been with them since March, they are a very fair and honest company to work for. I have had no problems with them. Absolutely no complaints here
DSG great company
DSG is a great company to work for--I have been there for a couple years...I believe it must be one of the best!
and NO I am NOT management, or recruiting, or anything like that. I am an MT....been working for them for quite awhile. They are an excellent fit for me.
Lots of ESLs - yes. IC only - I think so; check with them about it though. Direct Deposit - always correct and always on time. Platform - it is their own and is Word based, so if you are familiar with Word you would be all set. Managers are very kind and helpful, answer questions almost immediately. QA - I have seen some posts on this board that were negative about their QA but I really dont have much contact with QA. I am familiar with my accounts, I do my work, and they leave me alone and put my paycheck in my checking account every other week. I also like that they do not beg and plead and hound us to death to get work done when it gets backed up. Yes, they let us know; yes, they send out emails; yes, they say they STILL need help; but there are no phone calls or IMs or *guilt*. It is just - if you can help, please do, we need you. Also, the workflow group are great. They seem to have a handle on their job and do it well.
But no company is perfect.....so......what would be the cons to FN? Running low on work. This seems to happen when they are ready to take on new accounts. It SEEMS that they hire in anticipation of new accounts and put new hires on present accounts until the new accounts start dictating. Work may be low at those times. BUT THIS IS ONLY MY IDEA...I dont know if that is what actually happens. I think the last time I was low on work was, maybe last Spring.
Also, the work seems to get slow the weekend before we turn in our invoices. I think MTs are trying to get in their lines for the pay period. I dont know for sure, of course, but that is MY GUESS. So what I do is make sure I get my lines in the Friday before the weekend before invoices so that is there is little work that Saturday and Sunday, I can take time off and not sweat it.
It works for me.
What a great company DRC was?
Do you really think they care about the lowly MT who is so offended? Doubt it. They're laughing all the way to the bank baby!
I do all ER reports for KS, and I average anywhere between 2000 and 2500 lines a day. I have only been there for about a month, but I have never run out of work, but they gave me a second ER account in case I ever do. Each account uses a different platform. Mine uses ExText, and I love it. Other accounts require a C-phone. As far as ESLs, every account is different, but there is only one on mine, and he is not even that bad. I would have no problem recommending this company to anyone. Good luck.
Great company. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Flexible scheduling. Emdat is great!!!!! Pay on time all the time. Wonderful company.
This is a great company to work for. Emdat is very easy and so convenient for working. Pay on time, direct deposit and boss is so nice and helpful. Work is good and plentiful most all days. good luck
Yes, MDI-MD is a great company, but
they do require you schedule some time on the weekends.
I work for Axolotl. I have been employed with them for 18 months. I don't know if they are hiring PT but they are definitely hiring FT.
They have EXCELLENT benefits, which includes health insurance, dental insurance and vision for around $300.00 month FAMILY. They have other GREAT benefits as well.
I think it's a great company,
and the new account I'm on is a winner. I've been there about 9 months.
I currently work there and love my job. They are great people to work for and the work is steady. Love my accounts. Pay is 0.8 cents a line.
Great Company. sm
Excellent IT staff, pay on time (direct deposit, if in Canada at least), great people, pay well. Canadian dollar worth more than US dollar now too. They may pay in US for US MTs though.
Yes, they are a great company!!!
I was with them for a couple weeks, but because of personal reasons I had to leave. I would love to be able to go back to the acct I was on :-(
They are great though. Good pay. Pay on time. Very nice owners. Easy program.
I worked for Execuscribe in 2006. They are a locally-based MTSO here in Rochester, NY. The work is from Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester. You have to provide your own equipment to work for them, but other than that, they're really great. Being a smaller, local operation, they definitely have the time to respond to all your questions and provide support. I also worked in-house at their office, and the ladies really are quite nice. If you talk to Kathy S - she is the best! Very, very helpful. If you don't have a problem meeting their minimum line requirement (7000 lines per week, I think) , I'd definitely take the job! If you have any other questions, feel free to email me. Good luck!
Okay. Thanks. Seems like a great company.
I have worked for them for 5+ years. I never had a problem with sound quality. All the dictators I have encountered, which would total probably 50 or more, have been excellent! Pay is always on time if not early. Not to mention the pay is excellent!! The people are great. Great communication.
Do not worry at all, just take the position if offered and enjoy!!!
Try Professional Transcription, Inc out of Florida - awesome company to work for, very supportive staff, always paid on time and plenty of work to go around most of the time. They dont' have a webpage, but you can email them at email@example.com. Good luck!
AccuStat in SC lets you type the amount of lines you want, whenever you want. Their requirements are meeting required accuracy and TAT..can't beat that!
No outsourcing whatsoever!
I have been there for about 2 years and I find that they pay very fairly.
They do offer health insurance (we just got a great policy.)
I don't think we have any part-time accounts right now.
Your hours totally depends on what account you get.
It's an excellent company! I'm actually an account lead there, so feel free to ask me any questions.
It's a great company...
Give it a chance; Transcend is a great company and you will be happy there. I have been there for many years, and the people are so nice. I just received my Christmas gift ($25 gift card) - they care about their employees,
I too work for this company. This posting never states a pay of 8 CPL. It is an hourly rate. And it would not be unusual to receive a minimum of 100 e-mail per day with 30 MTs requesting help. I have also never met a medical Transcriptionist who does not need to leave blanks occasionally. Your posting reflects a strange reaction to his ad.
A great company
is MDI-MD! They are kind, honest, great QA, no mass e-mails. Best place I every worked.
seems to be a great company sm
to work for. I'm only on my 2nd month there but I've had plenty of work and also have a secondary acct I haven't had to do yet. They pay for spaces and use ShortHand for word expansion. I think the QA people are great. They do not do VR and have no plans right now to switch and that is why I chose to work there.
I have worked for this Medscribe for a little over a year and LOVE IT!! Good pay, lots of work, and the boss is so nice. I recently decided to quit my full time job at a hospital and go full time with them.
I've been with Transcend now for 4 months. I know it's not very long but I've been in the business for 20+ years. I have found Transcend to be one of the most organized, efficient and a truly amazing company to work for. They give you every opportunity and all the tools necessary for you to reach you full potential and make a decent living. Trascend is an extremely largely company but still find a way to make every MLS feel appreciated and recognize our hard work. I can definitely speak for my region, ROM and staff. I just wish I would have made the switch years ago. I am using BeyondTxt and I think is a great platform. You will hear good and bad about every company and platform out there. What's right for me may not be right for you. I can only offer my opinion. Best of luck to you. You may definitely have to weed out some bad apples along the way.
This is a great company with extremely helpful fellow employees and good training as well.
Transcend is a great company.
