I had good dictators, they use FTP, and I had a 12-hour window to return the work.

Webmedx fits that bill, great company, great benefits, great pay and always on time. NM
MDI-Maryland is an excellent company, pay on time all the time, great line rate.
I left also because I went out and got my own client(s).
They are very nice people.

The only negative I can think of were the e-mails from the owner say work, work, work, we are out of TAT.

Other than that, which is very minor, it was a good experience.
I worked there for a short time. Wonderful company.
I went and got my own clients, so I couldn't do both. Pay was adequate and on time by direct deposit. I had a teaching hospital, good account, some difficult ESL, some not so difficult. Bayscribe platform is okay, had to get used to it. I personally was not fond of it, but to each their own.

The long distance phone service was not an issue. I used the Verizon unlimited LD and regional plan $49.99 per month.

All-in-all, my experience was good while there. Every company has their ups and downs. It all depends on what your individual needs are and how far out of your comfort zone you want to go.

Good luck!

I only worked there briefly, but great people, and pay always on time. sm

They do have a thing where you have to get a paper check for the first 90 days, then you can have direct deposit.   The account that I was on used ExText.

Hope this helps.  Good luck. 

but a great post - my company gets bashed all the time too.
DSG is a great company, pay on time, nice management, incentive, but SM
occasionally work load is an issue depending on shift and account but if you're willing to be flexible, you should be okay.
Great company. I've been recommending this company for a long time.
I worked for them a short time ago.. sm
I found them to be a very good company, very fair and very honest. I had no problems with getting my check at all. I did not stay with them long, however it had nothing to do with the company, it was for personal reasons. I would work for them again. Good luck.
I worked there a short time
and EVERYBODY I ever dealt with was pleasant & professional.  Very, very nice company. I ended up leaving because I had trouble with my DSL and kept losing jobs, but it was a great company. I loved being able to review other chart notes on the patients, very helpful. Good luck to you there!
I worked for them for a short time.
Very, very fussy in QA, but other than that was a decent place to work.
What do you need to know? I worked there for a short time
Not my favorite company -- not because of software, but QA issues. No two QA said the same thing. It was a losing battle. I am much happier since I left that place. AMEN!
Worked there for a short time
I had no issues. I was never threatened. They will ask for help if MTs are not working/meeting quotas and as an AM myself, it seems there are more MTs who don't care than do.
I worked there for a very short time
...just long enough to figure out there was no way to make any money...especially on the Emdat Inscribe platform they use.  The people there are very nice though but that doesn't pay the bills!
Worked there for a very short time. Glad to be gone.
also worked there just a short time last year .. nm
I so agree. Worked w/them for short time sm
and one of the worst experiences of my career.  Too many things to list.  Horrid.
I worked for them for a short time and found the
platform very cumbersome. It was the worst platform I have ever worked with. The people were nice, a little flaky, but nice. Communication could have been better. Pay was on time and direct deposit.
I worked for TSLLC for a short time last year
They pay hourly for editing voice recognition reports. Back then, very few of the reports were very good quality, most of them had to be pretty much retyped. The software might have learned some of those by now though, not sure as I didn't stay to find out. One thing I was told AFTER I started working there was that your hourly rate will most likely go down. During the first 3 months, you get paid the hourly rate you agreed upon and then they start charting how long you're actually playing the voice file and that's what you get paid for. In other words, every time you stop the voice to make corrections, you're not getting paid. They also constantly sent emails with stupid mistakes that other MTs/editors were making and I just got annoyed and quit. But all in all, it was actually a good company and I always got paid on time, and if I remember correctly, it was weekly. I would just recommend asking for a higher hourly rate to begin with or making sure it won't go down later, put something in the contract or something. Hope this helps and wasn't too confusing :)
I worked a short time, El Centro & Salinas acct.
It took 3 1/2 solid days for the install (for free) System not too stable, had to contact tech support constantly. QA was from overseas, some inhouse. The account were also sent there after a certain time of day, 5pm I think it was. The particular account I worked on was really difficult lot of accents (account near Mexico border) A lot of slurring and speedy ones, they did not seem to care how they dictated. I am familiar with ESL too. I did not enjoy the experience.

There are times when someone is with a company a very short time but they are obviously sm
management material, especially if they have been management somewhere else in the past. I have never had anyone as a manager and am looking into that but it is difficult to figure out what and how to pay this person, what their duties will be and what kind of hours I need help during. I have had 15 of the same MTs for over 5 years and while they are all good MTs, they either do not want to be or would not make good managers, but someone I hired just 3 weeks ago is someone I am considering based on her experience and what she has proven to me in this short time.

In other industries, it is called the Fast Track to Management or Climbing the Corporate Ladder Quickly. Why should MT be any different?
Great company, great boss, great account!!!nm
If they are so great why do you work there part time?
RE: If they are so great why do you work there part time?
Because I choose to.
Great benefits, plenty of work, pay on time
Depending on experience, slightly above-average pay. I used to be with a company where I would have given my right arm for those few simple things. As for the posts below regarding line count, IF this (or any other concern) was affecting my work, there's a new invention called a telephone that comes in handy when wanting to address concerns (and their phone number is on their website).
great place to work at - friendly QA - pay always on time
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...
I agree, it's a great company! I have worked
at many places, but Transcend is the best. No company is perfect, but I have been very happy here.
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.
DSG is awesome-pay on time, management is great, plenty of work, flexible schedule. nm

Great bunch of people to work with, pay on time, my only problem is that QA is paid by line instead
of by the hour and you must listen to all reports 100% instead of just jumping and filling in the QA markers.
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 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!!! 
QT gets my vote! I love it! Gross line pay, on time, 1 account, steady work! Great place!!!! nm
I worked for the same company the whole time and

just traveled for a year.  I downloaded via FTP site so as long as I had internet access I could work anywhere.  I have direct deposit so I didn't have to worry about that.   My family and I traveled through 34 states and Mexico and I worked the whole time.

Probably not what you were asking, but maybe something you hadn't considered. 

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.

If things are still the same, the owner is great, but you wait a month for your first check ... sm

and the pay is rather low ..... it was by character count ... amounted to about 7-1/2 cpl.... but the work was easy, clinic stuff.  I have no idea what she pays for VR, though.   She is a professional and good to work for.


Good luck!

Have been with them a short time
I have been with them for about 3 weeks.  QA is very nice.  My account is very decent.  I can work whenever I feel like it as long as I put in my lines.  Bayscribe is a very easy and simple software to get used to.  Pay is excellent.  Overall, I'm pretty happy so far. 
No, and if it goes down, it is for very short time.
Yes. Quite a while ago and for a very short period of time.

Just wasn't a good fit and didn't feel good to me.  The pay was on time.  Platform was shoe-string transfers via e-mail but that could be different now.

I filled in for a short time . . sm
I worked for them about 3 years ago. They have a WP platform I believe. I thought it was a little fiddly, but not bad. Lots of OPs, big hospitals. They didn't bug me, just let me work. It's easy to make the lines if you're experienced. They really know what they are doing. If I needed the work, I would go back to them without hesitation.
I've been with them a short time.....sm
and am very happy. Nice folks, good accounts and good pay.
The choice is for a short time @ all SM
companies.  As more and more accounts and job types are run through VR, the straight typist will find herself without work at times.  When they tell someone they have no work, they will be told that if they would do VR they would have plenty of work.  That's how it goes.  Company will tell the MTs it's a choice, but even they know that eventually it will be forced upon everyone if they want to have steady work.
I worked for a temp agency for 3 years..LOVED it. Just worked. No counts, no hassels, GREAT pay..
No benefits at the time.  I even learned pathology while temping (8 months on that assigment).  I loved the variety, the ability to say I'm not available such and such time.  I'd do it again in a heartbeat if I didn't need benefits.
Owner is very ethical, pay always on time. sm
what else do you need to know, I will try to help.

They are a small company in Maine.
Owner is very nice, pay is always on time (more)

I personally didn't have an issue with Emdat, but I know there are others who really don't like it.  The patient info is in the system, and all you do is pull it up.  I think the accounts are primarily family practice clinics, so if you like that it may be a good match. 

Pay is about average, I suppose, and the line requirements are easy enough to reach.  Scheduling is very flexible. 

Did I hit the high points?  Good luck!  KM

Just a matter of time - the Indians know they are being short-changed. nm
She was talking abt not meeting standards in a short time - sm
like a week. Doesn't sound like she was good enough to keep around for longer.
For a business owner, you sure have a lot of spare time!
And quite the potty mouth. Poor bitter thing!
The grass, in my opinion, is definitely not greener. I left QT and a short time later, sm
I came back and was never happier that I did. I should never have left in the first place. I think QT is, by far, one of the most flexible, good-paying, understanding company to work for. I actually enjoy when it is a little slow and volunteer to have a day off. I love to have a day to myself every once and a while.

In regard to the person who waits 30 minutes for work, just call again. Sometimes, the office people get side tracked and then might forget that they didn't get work routed. L told me once, if I didn't have work in 10 minutes, call again. Usually, if this happens to me, the person says something line, Oh, I got busy and totally forgot, I'm sorry, I'll do it right away. Sorry about the long post, I just happen to think that QT is the best company out there! ;)
The owner needs a personality transplant, but the checks are on time. nm
I think someone on the Main Board had this problem a short time ago. Maybe a search there will show
