I love Meridian
I have been with Meridian almost 2 years (as an MT, not QA) and I love it. Lots of work, very flexible. Email me if you want more info.
Absolutely love my job! nm
I absolutely love them...sm
I have worked for them almost 2 years and have been totally and completely happy. They treat you great. The account I work on is internet based with an excellent platform using MS Word. I would highly recommend this company.
I absolutely love your saying of
you'd rather herd cats! I have 3 of my own and I can only imagine that fiasco in my mind. They march to their own drum, wouldnt come to you when you call them for nothing, aloof, oh, how I love my furries.
Been there for 4 years and absolutely love it! sm

Good accounts, pay on time via direct deposit, higher pay than most, smaller company where people still know you by name and truly care.  As for the platform, you type in Bayscribe and send your reports in live via the web site.  Some accounts are converting to wav files, and some are still via C-phone and you have to pay your own long distance. 

Of course, as with all companies, one man's paradise is another man's hell, so I am sure there are those who will disagree with me.  If I can answer anymore questions, fee free to ask.

Good luck! 

I currently work for them, and absolutely love them!
Pay is direct deposit and always on time. The account I'm on is relatively easy, although there are a few ESLs. I've been there 6 months now, and am very happy.
I absolutely LOVE Inscribe
Everything is so user friendly, and I love the fact that you can see what jobs are coming up and you can print them, so you know how much work there is actually on the system and how much you have produced. It is the BEST that I have seen out there!! Hope that helps.
I absolutely love Allscripts...
I've used quite a few platforms and Allscripts is just about my favorite. MS Word-based, and the count on the account I was on (no headers/footers) was accurate with Word's count.  If the authors/account use markers the demographics fill in quickly; the environment is very clean and efficient, simple and easy to understand, moving really smoothly from one job to the next with little-to-no fuss. Get in and out of the program very quickly, too.  I think you will love it! 
I work there and absolutely love it. You
set your schedule each week in 2-hour blocks each day. You have a minimum production per day you have to do and you need to work sometime within the blocks of time you schedule yourself.
I absolutely love your answer (sm)
I, like you, have read some of the newbie's questions and if a person thinks VR can train a newbie, then apparently they donít know 1 thing about VR. I have worked in this field since 1973 and as matured as I am, you have to be on your toes all the time whether straight or VR and it is not a teaching machine. Why people on here get the idea that being slower, having lack of experience in MTing or whatever better qualifies them to work on VR, I have no clue where that comes from.
I absolutely love it and make lots of $$$ on it. sm
Been working with eScription for about 6 years now and absolutely love it. Would not want to go back to straight transcription ever.

I also make great money with it ~ at least $50 an hour, consistently.

I count my blessings every day!
I work for Shapin as lead QA and absolutely LOVE my job..sm
The owner is the most fair employer Ii have ever had!! She is kind to personal situations. She will help you out any way she can. I make really, really good money working for her. She is looking for more editors, as the company is growing a great deal. If you want more info, please feel free to contact me at MaryC_RI285@msn.com.
absolutely love it thus far!!!! been through 3 lately and finally hope i can stay put and am alread
Absolutely awesome awesome platform. I love it.
I believe the concensus is you either love it or hate it. I personally love it and make lots of money.
Love, love, love TransTech! Not overhiring, just growing like crazy!
Okay, I've checked the archives on this company and I am coming up with both good and bad.  They've offered me a job and the pay is more than anybody else has offered. What does anybody know about their internet-based platform called Med Write (spelling?) XL?  Please tell me what you know and help me make an informed decision.  Thanks to you all for your input.

How is this company to work for?  Do they have good benefits, pay, dictators?  How is the management and communication?
I worked for them for a short time and it was awful. The accounts were not as wonderful as they made them out to be and if you don't do exactly what they ask, they get nasty with you. I say keep looking.
Well, I have been here a few months and I honestly love it. Everyone is helpful and yes they are a bit picky, but it has been a great learning experience. Yes, work is slow in the beginning on the 5-report system, but it worked out great for me. To each her own ...
So, do they harrass you about not meeting quota? I really don't need benefits, but they did offer me a nice line rate. I know a few folks who are working there and are pretty happy. I just don't want to be constantly harrassed (I can stay at MQ for that :-)

Pays great if you can tolerate the *itchy office staff. Worked for them and left because of how they treat the people working for them. Too many Other great companies out there. Good luck!
Thanks for your comment but for my sake and one other MT who is considering, can you comment further on itchy staff? Sure would appreciate it.

It is extremely flexible. You submit a schedule to them weekly marking what times you will be working. You can work anytime of day/night/whatever. Full-time requirement is 12,000 payperiod (2 weeks). Not sure about part-time. They higher newbies and they pay is pretty good.
Do they hire part-time employees?  Do they pay more than 7 cpl to start?
I don't know if they hire PT, but they do pay more than 7 cpl.
Great company. Good pay, good QA, pay always on time. MedRite is easy to use, ESLs depend on the account, but not a high % of ESLs.
Could you e-mail me, please?  I would like to ask you some questions about this company, if you would be willing to talk to me.  Thanks!

Most of the accounts use Med Rite, easy platform, QA is good, they expect good work-2 weeks of paid training if needed, decent benefits, good company overall. 


I worked for them.  They have HORRID communication and don't treat emplyees well.  Feedback is all but ZERO.  There are better copmanies out there...
Cannot speak from experience, but just heard from 6 MT friends they are all promises until you are hired........then very, very rude, if not down right nasty!

If this is the same company, based out of Indianapolis, IN, it doesn't appear they have a website, however, it does appear that they are a member of the Medical Transcription Industry Association -


There is a valuable link - it lists all companies that are members as well as provides links to those companies with websites.

I am unimpressed as well. Very unprofessional.
I sent you an email!
JAG where are you from? Meridian here.. nm
Stay away from Meridian!
Anyone have experience with Meridian.  Good or bad?  I saw posts regarding the owner and negative QA experiences.
I have worked there well over a year - never a late paycheck. It's always in the bank shortly after midnight on payday.

I haven't found the perfect place to work, but Meridian is quite good.
I'm there, I'm glad I'm there, I can make good money, I have a flexible schedule, my managers are wonderful, QA is great, pay is always on time.  I've heard the stories about the manager.  I had one instance where she was rude to me, but that has been worked out.  The tech guy is iffie, too.  He knows his business, but sometimes he can be difficult to work with.  On the other hand, he can usually fix whatever it is that needs to be fixed.  There is no place that has 100% satisfied employees, but I'm satisfied and I'm happy.  If you know your job and do what you are supposed to, it can be a great place to work.

Does anybody have anything new on this company.  I heard a lot of bad things in the past about the manager. 

I noticed the contact person on the jobseekers board is a different name than usual.  Did the other person leave?

I have been with Meridian 3 years. I am always busy, get paid on time, good account, vacation. I don't use their insurance, so I cannot comment on it. The tech guy is a bit of a pain, but don't have to deal with him too often.

I can't speak for the other companies.
Has anyone worked for Meridian and did you like the company?
I currently work there and would recommend them. They offer great flexibility in scheduling. However, there is not a lot of communication between staff and MTs. They don't really provide any training, so if you are a new grad, I'd look elsewhere. QA staff are very nice.

Does anyone know anything about this company, good and bad?

I worked there and they put me on 2 accounts immediately, not good accounts and the QA was terrible.  Also they didnt pay me for my last check.  Not good company at all...
I have worked for them for about 6 months now and I love them. Great people to work with. QA staff really nice and helpful. Good pay and direct deposit always in on time. Great accounts also. Flexible shifts, just meet line counts. I think you would like it there.
Does anyone know if Meridian is still around? 
Hello - Does anyone work for Meridian currently?  I have looked in archives but most everything is older there and was just wondering what kind of place it is - Stable?
Meridian does VR.
It says on their home page that VR is part of their core strengths.
After having tested and interviewed, told I would start ASAP, two months later they finally got me started. They call you if you are two minutes late logging in, they take their time answering any questions. The sound quality on the account I was on was horrible, the dictators are horrible and the QA was never the same twice. I'd stay away if I were you.
Yes Its the same Meridian
It is the Meridian Healthcare in Indianapolis area. Yes, it WAS a fairly local acocunt. Yes, it is now gone. Yes, the boss was a real witch to me when I had been a great employee with great QA scores for over 3 years.

I was wondering if anyone can give me current information about Meridian out of Indy.  I am not finding very much current infomation and was curious to know how they are to work for, platform, what Expander program can be used, etc.  Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
