If you like a great work environment - Amphion is it!
I could talk for hours about the wonderful attitudes and great hours and references and supervisors...but suffice it to say that Amphion has been a blessing for the 2-1/2 years I've been with them.
I work M-F, can take off early for football games or doctor appointments, as long as I get it in before the pay period is up (and it's approved, can't just leave the computer, obviously). They have study groups for CMT, a message board, IM is always available for questions/problems, the IT department is top notch and friendly, trainers are a dream, the work is always there and your account does happen to run dry, there's plenty of other accounts to keep you busy.
They're a dream come true. I've been with 5 other companies (national and private) and I honestly never see myself leaving Amphion. It's like a 2nd family - and they really cares about you.
Good luck in your decision - if you decide to come to Amphion, WELCOME! :)
And wherever you choose - congratulations!!
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. 
I agree - Amphion's the best company to work for
Webmedx fits that bill, great company, great benefits, great pay and always on time. NM
Great company to work for...
Spheris is a terrific company to work for. They NEVER run out of work. They are extremely helpful. You use their computer set up. Direct deposit. Shifts you want. Need I say more? Oh, yes, the people there are terrific.

Ex-Spheris employee - hope to go back some day.
GREAT company to work for.
Hi, I have been an employee with them for almost one year.  I have NEVER had a late pay day, it is always on time. The work is plentiful.  In fact, for several months they have been BEGGING for extra help to stay in the TAT.  They do have some difficult accounts, many that are ESL dictators,  but once you get them - you get them - and they become like second nature to you.  They have employee status if you make a certain amount of lines every two weeks or you can be IC.  They are very thoughtful and nice people.  I don't believe they offshore, not 100% sure though.  I am happy to have found my home after two other internet company let-downs.  Hope this help.  But, really, you cannot go wrong with FutureNet.  And, their platform is the best!  Easy to work without putting in a lot of time for the demographics, etc.
Great company to work for!
I have worked for them for over six years and they are a wonderful organization to work for - very friendly, excellent benefits and pay, and flexible schedules.  You are paid every two weeks on time, like clockwork.  I would highly recommend them!
anyone else think this is a great company to work for?
From what i can see on the previous discussions, this is a great company to work for sounds like. Does anyone working for them right now think so?
Great company to work for. nm
great company to work for
They do not provide equipment but Dell has excellent deals going on plus financing. You can get a pedal for around $50. Line rates vary dependent upon shift plus bonus quarterly.
They are a great company to work for. sm
Pay is good and ALWAYS on time.  Have been with them for 1-1/2-years and NEVER has it been late or wrong.  They have heavy ESL load but for the most part they are good dictators with the exception of a few, just like anywhere else though.  Their QA is okay - one or two are not that nice but for the most part QA is good.  Workflow people are great!  Supervisors are great!  Had, months back, problems with work running out but not it is fine and has been.  Overall rating: GREAT company!
Great company to work for
I've been there close to a year.  Some of my acct's have a lot of ESL (but they are not bad) and some don't.  Support is good.  ExText is a good platform.  It took me awhile to get my lines, but after a few months, I got in the groove.  Works with Shorthand.  Don't know their pay range.  I've heard different things.  They recently changed their incentive schedule, and it is a lot easier to attain.  New accounts coming on board soon.
Great company to work for....
Anyone looking for a good company....apply at Diskriter they are a great company to work for. 
They are a great company to work for....sm

I have been with them for about 9 months.  They ALWAYS pay early or right on the day.  They always answer your e-mails, IMs, etc.  QA is very good.  They do not dock for errors, blanks, questions sent to QA, etc.  Work was slow around the holidays but other than that there is plenty of work.  I would recommend them.  Their platform is very easy (best I've ever used).  Good luck!!

I work for a great company and NOT BOS
In my experience, I have found to type verbatim.  Not all companies follow BOS guidelines. 
That's a great company you work for. I
sure would take advantage of it if I had the chance. I'm terrible in trying to make macros. I keep trying, but they never work....and to think I took programming years ago and updated my skills 20 years ago, so you would think I could get the hang of it.
Diskriter used to be a great company to work for
but I do not know what happened. They lost a LOT of office staff, as well as transcriptionists, and I am one of them. The management became horrible, the work was either there or not there on days, mandatory overtime, etc. I doubt they have changed. After 5 years I had to let go and move on.
Great company and I hear that work will
soon be picking up. I was hired recently, too, and I am willing to wait on some more work just to have the nice people to work for. Also, they pay half of the social security tax, not half of your taxes. But compared to IC deductions, that is a big help.
Oh wow what a great company TT sonds like to work for
Well thats 1 pt for TT, early deposits. What else ya got? Good line counts? Prompt response from management answering all your questions to your satisfaction? Hurry now I need to make a decision soon!
8 cpl for clinic work is great. What company
Softscript is a great company to work for! sm

I have been there a good while.  Pay is on time.  I have plenty of work except through Christmas/New Years.  It was low then.  Some people have negative to say about the company, others have positive.  You are better off judging for yourself really.  Our managers have not changed since last June, so don't know about the 'new management' as they have all been in place since then and since then I have noted nothing but positives within the company.  Hope this helps and no, I do not want any flames just because I happen to like Softscript.

It's a great company with plenty of work!
Pick your own schedule; they'll match current pay rate, tons of work, good-to-great money; nice people. Stuff posted on here is old and from dirtbags who couldn't hack it there!
WMX is a great company to work for. Made
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...
FC is a great company, very stable, lots of work. sm
The platform is simple and easy to use. You have a choice of transcribing in Word or WP5.1. My only negative is the sound quality. QA is very helpful and responsive. The people are very, very nice. I'm a bit of a perfectionist but still manage to rack up the lines pretty well. Pay is direct deposit, never late, many times early. On a scale of 1-10, I give this company a 9.

I recommend this company to seasoned MTs.

EMTS Great company steady work
Getting new work and accounts are sending more and more work.  Great people to work with. 
I've never clocked in/out, great company to work for.
Small but growing company, great to work for
Really sharp owner, great QA.
I think we must work for the same company. I find it always interesting how they say how great
the workload looks and people are really working hard when the fact is they have overhired and that is why there is no work. Must be DSG right. They are hiring right now.  Cant imagine what they are hiring for.  Hopefully not the acounts that are already out of work all the time. I wonder what kind of turnover rate they have there.
About Diskriter - It's a great company to work for, but why did you post under the MQ question
First Choice Medical is a great company to work for, and I think they are hiring too.
I have been there for over 4 years now. They use WP51 too if you want. Good luck to you.
The same here! I agree. They are a great company but the lack of work drove me away.

Thanks for posting that...Just goes to show that Keystrokes is a great company and will work with yo
I hope it works out for you and you start feeling better soon...
Current Amphion employee...I'm very happy. The part of Amphion I work with has no faxes, lists,s
minor demographic work..superb QA and feedback.  Fellow MTs on same account are more than willing to help and now they also have mentor program.  My pay is what they said.  They do have different pay for different levels. 
Amphion, so far, so great...:)

I have to say, so far, I have never been as impressed with another company, transcription or otherwise, nor have I been treated as well, it almost seems to good to be true.  Of course, everything always seems great in the beginning, but I truly was blown away compared to where I was, even when I think back to beginning with the other company and I thought THAT was good...in fact, I feel undeserving at this point, lol.

I really believe they are sincere, and they have bent over backwards for me, to the point that I felt I couldn't repay them in three lifetimes, lol. I was so skeptical and almost paranoid at first because of previous experience, but they've done everything they said they would.

They offer flextime, downtime for computer problems/meetings/conferences etc., and most importantly, they are very supportive and positive interpersonally, which spurs me on to want to do my best for them in return, not take advantage of it (which is what I think some companies fear if they employ these types of policies.)

There are incentives for quality, which I believe is an essential component that is too often overlooked nowadays. I've never understood why this isn't pushed as a competetive edge over the competition much, anyway, but I guess I see why productivity is more important. A good balance has always been my preference.

There is a fairly thorough testing site, and a skill-level stratification based on QA scores and productivity levels that are taken on a regular basis...not arbitrarily based on how well you kiss booty or make your manager look by working out of your shift to do it.  Management either have been or currently are transcriptionists, which is comforting.

Heavy on the self-starting skillls needed here, and a little iffy on the communication in the beginning, but this quickly cleared and was partly my fault. Make sure you send all training info cc-ed to all trainers to that you're all on the same page.

Oh, and as for the equipment, I received my computer ASAP and it's brand new, 20 dollars per month.  There is QuickLook, Stedman's, and the AAMT BOS already installed for you on the desktop.

The only problem I foresee might be workflow at some point (if everyone jumps to them now), but in my opinion, that happens at times anywhere and can't be predicted.  I was never bothered by lack of work flow much anywhere, unless it went on for an eternity. (I used to be self-employed, talk about famine at times.)

All companies are not all the same, girls and guys, that's bull ya tell yourself to keep you in the comfort zone.  You are not spoiled just because you realize that your experience and skill level, after an appropriate amount of time, might be worth a little something after all, and you should find a company that will tell you so...IF you are truly doing what you say you are and not making excuses when you haven't given it your best.

Make sure to ask for what you NEED, not what you WANT...be reasonable...but don't settle for less than what you truly need to survive on.

If I change my mind down the road, I'll be sure and let you know, but so far, so great.:)

Good luck to you and go get 'em.:)

Amphion is great, but the pay is (sm)
average. I look at it like this: I would much rather have average pay and easy cheesy accounts and make $25 an hour rather than 10 cpl and get lousy accounts with being lucky to get my lines in.
I don't know why you guys think Amphion is so bad. I've never had a problem. Not with my supervisor, QA, management, IT or anyone else.
Great company, great boss, great account!!!nm
I hear Amphion is great.
I hear they are mainly clinic transcription but I don't know.
s/l Amphion to me. Great bunch and then some!!
Bless them:)
Wow! That's great....I think I just moved Amphion

to the top of my list!  Thanks!! 

Great pay rate on a 55 ccl, great lady to work for and work is not tough. sm

It is all IC work, although you still are expected to give a schedule if you are doing stat coverage.  Only major drawback is the big wait for your first check -- almost a month from the time of your first invoice.


Good luck!  

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!!! 
YOG - Lots of work, great office staff, great money. NM
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.
Amphion is just like every other company (sm)
not terrible, but not that great either. Just like all the others....
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.
Amphion is a company with smarts.
They are low-key, pleasant, and agreeable. No high-energy hassle from what I've experienced. I just may have to give up my blood pressure meds if I continue with them....lol!
Is Amphion a good company?
Does Amphion allow you to work a flexible schedule or is it set hours, do they require a c-phone, have a stable workflow.....?  How is it working for Amphion?
