In Reply to: that's just sickening - oh, yes,I do matter
I was taught by my parents to worry about me and not what others are doing. It is none of my business how much work is left for others. Who cares? They are not paying my bills, I am.

Great people to work for, but I had to leave due to lack of work. Hopefully that has changed. SM
Most of us who do not live in California had to go IC. When I was there, they did not have statutory status, although they told me they did when they hired me. Their pay for VR is VERY low, not a living wage. Many of the folks in the office are ex-YOG and great to work for/with. Good luck.
Oh they will leave you alone all right, WITHOUT WORK!
Not a very honest bunch of people who do not monitor their work flow, thus first come first serve, thus you might as well throw out their payment scale, as you have to type so much to make so much, and how can anyone do that when there is not enough work!
They leave you alone and let you work....
me too. I work, they leave me alone sm
type what needs to be typed, don't complain and I don't have a problem. It may not work out for some and some may say the pay is too low for 34 years experience (it is) but unfortunately it is what it is.
I decided I loose more money looking for jobs than just settling into one and doing the best I can do. I don't jump through hoops but I help out extra when I can and when I cant, I can't and thats the way it is. They appreciate it and so do I.
I still think, even with the line rates being lower than they were (doing straight MT, no VR) you can make a good living at this but you can't if you don't have the experience! I feel for the newbies but in this business, you have got to do your time so to speak and it takes years. I blame the MT schools out there for the whole go to school for a few months and make a ton of money mind set.
then u should want her to take a leave to get her work
You are so jealous. The girl wants to start a family. It shouldnt matter how long she has been working and where. If she wants to have a baby, then hats off to her.
She will not be having a party as it is not fun sometimes to be pregnant.
If you went out and broke your leg, you can take time off and get paid short-term disability. Why dont you just go do that? You wont have to worry about your production.
Do they leave you alone to work? I personally
would rather be left alone instead of bothered all day with phone calls, etc.
Majority of MTs say just give me the work and leave
Dedicated accts, few ESL, leave you alone to work.
I don't work there anymore, but I know people who do, and she did not leave. pls r/o
That person has not left the company, and she is still wreaking havoc. LOL
Had to leave FN due to neverending low work volume. SM
Almost everyone has to work IC if you don't live in California. Liked working there, though.
Or you could just quit and leave more work for the rest of us... Or, I know - you could sm
do your OWN WORK and stop policing everyone else?!
Leave your email and i will contact you about possibly some prn work. nm
Agree. Had to leave. Loved it there but no work and no benefits.
No work, no paid downtime, bennies might leave...
Nice people, easy clinic work, leave you alone, but low pay. nm
Unbelievable! I work for Transtech and got PAID maternity leave! Some of these
companies need to take a lesson from them.
Friend has been there for years, only makes 7 cpl, work load very uneven. Looking to leave,
You need to leave due to lack of work. Put in your 2-wk notice and move on. Gotta earn a living! nm
So LEAVE ALREADY. nm
I will leave it, thank you very much
through these 2 rotten companies, I finally have found a good company, one that appreciates my work (which is very good) and one that does not lie to me or steal lines!!! So take that!!
Why did you leave?
Or do you still work for them? I had the same experience - just sent my paperwork back, but haven't heard anything, including training date, etc.
Leave it alone. I(SM)
If you don't like what they posted, that's fine. You have no right whatsoever to harass them for it and yes, that is exactly what you were doing.
leave your job
Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, don't do it!:)
why did you leave
see below, and please leave me alone, if you have nothing
meaningful or thoughtful to post.
Why did I leave? SM
1. Lack of tech support. Computer once was down for 3 days before tech support finally got in touch with me -- despite my leaving 2 messages.
2. Cut in pay for ASR work. Line rates for ASR work were reduced by approximately 50% compared to straight transcription line rate. PTO accrual rate also almost cut by 50%.
3. Lack of communication. E-mails, not always but occasionally, will never be answered. I figured out this usually happens when they don't know the answer and don't want to admit they don't.
4. Nasty people at the Help Desk. You are required to have your IM turned on while working. If Help Desk needs a stat done, they can get very nasty with you if you don't get it done in what they feel is a timely fashion, its the end of your shift, or for some reason it doesn't fall into your cue.
why did you leave?
Why did you leave? NM
Please don't leave
We are not all malcontents. I, too, have worked for different hospitals and understand your reasoning. Hang in there - some of us don't blast (at least not very often).
By staying there you are giving them life. Quit now. Anyone who works under those conditions can only blame themselves. Companies can't **** employees like garbage if there are no employees.
let's all leave
Okay all you TTers, let's leave this board for good. We know we have a good thing at TT.
Why did you leave? nm
Why did you leave?
Just wondering if you don't mind...
You can always leave
Some of us like our jobs. And I'm not the only rah-rah.
And for your information I don't get paid anything extra. I'm just not as jaded. Sorry 'bout your luck.
It's funny how much you'll talk about the company and the director without putting your name. Bet you wouldn't say the same thing if we we're in an office where there was a face with those comments!
I would not leave
I work for a small company as an IC. The company knows IC means I work when I can or want to. I have no set schedule. That is #1 importance to me. But aside from that, the account I work on is really nice. I have run out of work on occasion, but it is not a regular thing and seems to happen mostly when someone new is hired. The new people seem to go in and work around the clock, taking work from those of us who have been there longer and tending to be the cherry pickers, which annoys me somewhat, but that usually dies down within a couple of weeks and then things get back to normal, with enough work for everyone. There are some ESL dictators but not a ton, and many of those are easily understood. The owners of the company are really easy people to work with, very understanding, etc. The pay is always on time, and I feel I earn decent pay for what I do and I feel like I am valued there. I would not leave them now or otherwise.
Now my second job is a whole different story. I work as a coder for a large hospital, and i would leave in a heartbeat if I could. I work from home and again have no set schedule but do have to work xx number of hours each week; I just pick the times to work. That is it's only advantage. The work is demanding and difficult. We get no respect for it at all. The stress is incredible as we work on a production standard that is virtually impossible to meet. We have 0, that's right 0, people in our group who meet the standard, and we have 27 coders. The expectations are unachievable, and we are constantly pressured to do more and more and more but we get less and less and less in return. Sounds familiar? However, this is the job that provides benefits for myself and my hubby, so I am stuck there for time eternal (or until Medicare kicks in for us). In my lifetime, I have always enjoyed working, but this is truly the first time I could say I hate my job and mean it wholeheartedly. That is why I feel for so many of the MTs out there who are stuck in situations that are making them miserable. Considering the amount of time an individual spends working, shouldn't we be able to feel good about what we do?
Why would you leave?
Why would you leave a perfectly good job that you like because two companied merged? Why not wait to see how it works out? I've worked for Transcend for five years and for the most part they are a good company...it would work AGAINST them to take you off your regular accts and put you on unknown accts then train people to work your accts. Their goal is to get the lines done and done well. Pay is above most companies and you do get paid for major holidays. There is PTO, benefits and 401K. Please don't do something foolish, especially in this economy.
why don't they just leave us alone to do
our job and put this wasted research money into something worthwhile?? Why don't they put it into finding a cure for cancer or something?
If YOU think you are a G.P. then YOU can leave.
matters what the person who percieves herself as a G.P. thinks, and if she WANTS to stay or go.
Please go find your new job and leave it be
I figured there would be a post on here after the forum. But let's not make it out to be more than it was. There was 1 post. That is because people's names are shown on the company forum. And on MT Stars, who knows how many posts are from the same few people. If Transcend was so bad, you would think that it would not be prospering as it is. I work there, I love it. I have had NO problems, NADA. I am not the only one either. I am sick of hearing the bashing. I am sure that there are problems there, as anywhere, but they are a good place to work and compared to some companies, a great place to work. If you want the "perfect" job, I guess you will never be happy. Sometimes you just need to be realistic and a little less spoiled.
Job offer from MDI-FL should I leave OSi for them?
By the way it's a VR job, suffering from ulnar nerve entrapment and looking for options.
Leave your e-mail here, may be able to help.. sure it is IL and not WI..nm
Pay was what??? You got cut off...don't leave us in suspense LOL. nm
yes, leave your email
Got one in mind for you <G>
leave your email
tons of work
yes, leave your email
They are very civilized when you leave
Why would you want to leave your IC position?
IMHO, it's better to be an IC than employee. As an employee, you still have the expenses but without being able to deduct as much on your taxes. The 2 cpl lower pay with payroll taxes held out won't make up the difference of your self-employment tax percentage (half of the SE 15.9%). I have learned that if you are basically happy where you're at, STAY THERE. The grass is not greener on the other side no matter what people say. I have bounced from company to company, IC to employee and back, etc., this past year because I can't find a good fit.
Did a lot of MTs leave after the holidays?
There were problems with slow/no work in the fall and earlier this month, but they were still hiring?
If you loved it, why'd you leave? nm
I would imagine you would have to be employed by them for a while before they would pay you for maternity leave. I am not ragging on anyone but I don't understand how someone can expect to look to work for a new company pregnant and expect them to pay you while you are off work, how are they supposed to make any money? I can see if you have been with them for a year or so, but to me that is asking for a bit much. You could not even go to a hospital or clinic and expect that. If you had a babysitter or a nanny and after a few months they wanted 6 to 8 weeks off PAID and you had to hire someone to replace them for that time and thus had to pay double and only had your usual income, would you do that? Where are you working now, do they pay for maternity leave? Most places don't pay for it but allow you to take six weeks off but it is usually without pay unless you use all of your sick time/vacation that you have accrued. I just don't understand looking for a new company now that you are pregnant, tell me if I am wrong but that is what your post sounded like.
I am NOT currently pregnant, but am planning on in the next couple of years...I don't appreciate the comment when you have not even obviously read the whole conversation. Someone else was already pregnant...NOT ME!
