Platform is easy to use, and the people are great to work with. sm
I only work there part-time, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.  Good luck on whatever you decide. 
Easy platform, assigned accounts, always plenty of work. Great OM and boss. nm

Great place - ExText is easy to learn and user friendly. Good pay. Nice, COMPETENT people.
Good accounts, great people, plenty of work. sm

I'm past that "honeymoon" stage of the first few months that another poster mentioned.  I still find them to be the best for me.  Never run out of work, always there for questions, including timely responses, great people (QA and otherwise). 

I'd highly suggest contacting either your supervisor or Jane (as she offered) about lack of work.  As you should see on the daily reports, there is plenty of work out there. 

Good luck & I hope it works out for you. 

Great people, difficult details on accounts to remember...nm
Loved Alltype! Great management and great accounts.
wah  -  i miss it there!
System great, pay good, everything great, but most managers from old Edix, problems, poor people ski
when you are out of work, you are out of luck. If you are good at brown-nosing, are tough enough to be without any self-esteem, and have maybe money coming into the household on the side in case you tick someone off, then you may succeed, for a little while.

Don't ever ask questions or have problems with anything. Don't ever have a problem. Don't think you will have any control over anything you do, either.

A few 'good' managers remained when I left, but the new ones were all from the old Edix, and were completely into numbers, cared nothing for individual MTs...if there is work, you BETTER be working. If there no work, you will hear nothing, no one will help you.
Accounts are easy in my opinion because
I received ample training and examples/demos on new accounts and have access to experienced MT's that have been on the accounts for some time which is something I had never experienced with any other companies. I like not having to teach myself a system all while trying to support my family.

Great company other than below. Decent pay, easy

platform, they usually don't pester you to work OT if they have it, they pay for downtime, QA very tough, strict schedule, daily QA feedback, monthly QA score.

If you screw up be prepared to be yelled out like a 5-YO.  Work your schedule, follow account specifics, produce a quality product and you'll never hear from anyone. 

You nailed it! Too many people think it is going to be EASY
and just want to work from home. Yep, work from home.....but NOT easy.

I can sooooooooooo relate to everything you wrote :)

Is it easy to get line counts on Precyse radiology accounts?? sm

anyone using dial up with radiology accts, are you getting good line counts?  i've done a search on archives and reading info about the company.  anyone else radiology-wise care to share their experience?


Bait and switch? Hard dictators? Easy accounts?

Lets be reasonable here.

I see complaints because we get put on a difficult account when you know there are easier ones out there.  I see complaints because when you start working for a new company you are put on an easy account and then switched to a more difficult account. 

Face it.  Every company has hard accounts along with the easier accounts.  What should these companies do?  Start you out on the worst accounts so you cannot possibly get your line counts when you are starting and as nervous as a shaky leaf?  Start you on an easy account until you lose your fear and have passed QA to ensure you know the basics of transcription?  (That is what you are calling bait and switch.)

I just do not think these companies can win.  They certainly cannot meet your demands of easy accounts, especially those who are just starting for them and think you should get the cream of the crop.   Are they supposed to penalize their long term MLS and give them all the hard work just to accommodate your every wish?  Is this how you would want to be treated if you had worked for a company for 5+ years?   I don't think so.




Pay always on time, platform is easy, they've always been nice to me, do have several accounts to
avoid running out of work.  I do MT and QA.
I love it here; easy platform, plenty of work, great communication
Great company -- good benefits, average pay, easy-to-achieve sm

incentive tier, ExText platform, pay by direct deposit every 2 weeks, always on time.  The people in management seem to genuinely care about the employees, which is a nice plus.  I have been there since October and am very happy.  Of course, one man's paradise is another man's hell it seems at times, but it is a good fit for me.


Good luck! 

Nice people, easy clinic work, leave you alone, but low pay. nm
agree, IMEs are great $$, easy reports, miss them, would love to find them
Because people only want specific work types, easy dictators and certain hours...
That is why some people find a shortage of work, while others find an abundance. I cannot believe these last few threads and the vitriole of some of your responses. Any time a company is mentioned, any company, there are always a bunch of negative responses.

Maybe you all should check within yourselves to find out why you do not have enough work.

I happen to work for a company that is being negatively mentioned in these posts, and I am extremely happy. They may offshore, but they treat me very well, are communicative and I have never missed a paycheck. I also will do any work types, ESL, and will help out extra when asked. This is one of my first times on this board and I probably will not be back.
yes, IC only, clinic accounts, great co.

Is that the only option, though? How about great accounts at 10 cpl? :-) nm

Just people with a few accounts, sm
and some subcontractors.  Very small time.  Most actual companies have their own platforms these days.
My STM said no new people were on any of our accounts, but regardless of (sm)
what account they are on it someone who was typing those lines will be moving to another account and when that account runs low the people on that account will move to another account, and so on and so on.

I like the company, the benefits and the fact they don't outsource. I will stick it out and hope for the best.

We had a lot of work the first of this week, I don't know what happened. Maybe some people are already searching out other jobs.

Right now I am glad it is summer time and when I do have to flex my schedule I consider it an opportunity to spend a little unexpected time out in my garden.

Have a pleasant evening everyone.

I'm with them. Good work environment, easy accounts and I'm making really good money. nm

Which companies out there have great ortho accounts??

I would like to find a company that has a lot of ortho..It's my first love. Any suggestions??

Great, there are people out here who...

are the sole support of their families (who usually need to eat regularly, wear clothes and shoes and need electricity and other "luxuries."

You would tell someone in that position to be grateful for the opportunity to spend time with their children in that case?  How much quality time can a parent have with kids if they are worried about paying the bills?

Great people....
I was hired by Alltype a couple of weeks ago.  Everyone is professional and friendly.  They pay excellent and they hire both employee and IC status.  When the account that I was hired for was having technical problems they offered me an hourly wage compensation becuase it was not my fault.  Now thats a company that cares about their transcriptionists.  I'm pretty sure I'll be with them for a long, long time.
Great people nm
These people who think 40K is great sm

weren't around when this was a real career, when the pay scale was 11 cpl+ as an employee with benefits and a normal amount of paid time off during the year, equipment provided by the company, internet paid by the company.

Fast forward from then until today and what you have is a clerical job with clerk salary.

Yep. Great people.
I worked for them many, many years ago, but absolutely love the owner, Cindy, and her husband. (Back then, not sure about now), the pay was great and I felt like a member of the family. Highly recommended.
I wasn't saying that we do not have enough people on the accounts. I was saying that we do not r

out of work and it is always busy.  Lee is the owner but the managers "run the show".  She is sales not HR.   She took over calls for a few days when Karen and Keystrokes parted ways.  Becky is the one to talk to at the office.  Lee is out of town on sales calls and client visits too much to handle that.  You should call the office at 630-739-5520.  Perhaps you misunderstood that you were hired?  She hired a transcriptionist that I used to work with and she has been working for a month now, starting two days after she was hired. 

Becky is wonderful and can help anyone who needs help.  Did you ever leave a message with the office or did you call Lee at her direct line? 

I am not involved in this end but am friends with a manager (worked with her for 5 years at a hospital) and know that HR is not Lee's strong point - it is a full time job and she already works 12 hour days.

Great office staff, okay pay, horrible ESL's on all accounts. NM
The people are great to work with
and the pay is good and on time. I do find the work isn't as steady as I'd like though, but hey, that's the MT business, right?
Pay is a bit low, but great bunch of people. sm

Clinic work is super easy -- 7 to 7-1/2 cpl -- and I think acute care pays 8-1/2 cpl.  They pay once a week, direct deposit, work is done in Word.

Hope this helps.


Great for some maybe....but they are nice people...nm
That was great. My heart goes out to the MDI people, too. nm
KS people who work on accounts with lag time (sm)
I have been having the phone line go dead and sometimes I can call right back and get my report and sometimes I lose it.  I have had my cable people out here several days in a row, and they can find nothing wrong.  I was wondering if this happens to others - and maybe it is a problem with the hospital line we use - not actually the line in my home.  I appreciate any input.  (I am new on this account so do not have enough history to know.) 
They keep losing accounts and letting people go. nm
Hmm, guess they have openings for certain people on certain accounts...nm
Hourly pay, great benefits, schedule depends upon which accounts...sm
you are QAing.  Solid company.  Good luck!
Great office staff, okay pay, no benefits, horrible ESL all accounts...NM
Seems like the problem is becoming more widespread. Well, the people that think MQ is so great may
not after they are in the same situation. You know, things are great until they arent. One thing is for sure, it will change and all these people that are getting bonuses etc with tons of work are bound to be right along with us in the very near future. Guarantee it. MQ is after very VERY short TAT and so that will become companywide as it is already. Cant run a 1 hour TAT and have people not running out of work constantly. That also is a given.
Great people..AWFUL platform!!!nm
Consider yourself in the inner circle. She is great to people she likes but
quite the opposite if she does not. There is no pattern either, all a whim. I am lucky that she likes me, but I am afraid that the knife will someday be in my back.

JLG as a company has been great to me. Do not let the recruiter spoil the opportunity to work for a great company. Just grin and bear it because once you are in, you do not have to deal with her.
I work for Allegiant too - great people and a
Yes, some really great, talented people have left, and that's
always a danger sign to me. If upper management keeps being mentioned as a reason these good people are leaving, somebody should take notice. This company seems to be hemorrhaging talent and keeping an incompetent, power-hungry suit. It's hard to know whether to leave or stay. I would not recommend them to anyone right now.
Good! Great people to work for!
Just by posting that here will help a great deal of people
Thank you!
Forever, people had 2 jobs, not just MTs. And great
This is what i mean by you pilot your life, your life shouldnt just be floating you thru life.  Over the course of about 2 years, I have made conscious effort to make my life work for me. Figured out what platforms I like, what type accts.  What kind of equipment works best for me, how to efficiently handle docs and files.  In word based platform, I am Speedy Gonzales as far as how I get in and out, how I process docs. Still spend same amount of time on actual edit and type, those you can only do so fast and be correct but all other aspects, I am fast. You find your fit, which is not a one size fits all.  But, working 2 jobs is not the territory of onlyl the MT world. My dad did it while my mom also worked as RN. 
Biggest problem with MQ is they put too many people on the accounts and guess what. You either have
nothing or keep going into multiple accounts which presents its fair share of problems plus big time QA problems and quality problems and MQ wonders why they lose accounts. They STILL dont understand it is better for everyone including the client for the MTs to be familiar with the account. They just dont get it and I guess never will.
Nice people but low work, and yes I have multiple accounts!! nm
