It's amazing the things people will say on these boards. There are a lot of happy transcriptionists at Transcend, and I get treated great. I love my job, get paid well per line and also get great benefits, including a 401-K match

Can't speak about Webmedex, but I love keystrokes.. sm
Best company by far that I have ever worked for. Steady work, good line counts, good specs, fair QA, on-time pay.
Does anyone speak legalese? From the MDI/Transcend purchase contract- sm

I found this.  Now it sounds to me like that means they possibly have a list of people they plan to let go? And they can let go the rest at any time?   There was prior mention of MDI supplying T with a list of people making over $35,000.  Would they be the peope on Schedule 6.11?  The entire document is here:  http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/858452/000119312509183673/dex20.htm

Section 6.11 Employees.

(a) Purchaser shall continue the services of the employees of the Company following the Closing except for the individuals listed on Schedule 6.11 hereof who shall be terminated at or shortly following the Closing. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, nothing herein expressed or implied shall confer upon any employee of the Company, any other employee or legal representatives or beneficiaries of any thereof any rights or remedies, including any rights to employment or continued employment for any specified period of any nature or kind whatsoever under or by reason of this Agreement, or shall cause the employment status of any employee to be other than terminable at will.

(b) Purchaser covenants and agrees that in connection with any decision concerning a Company employee’s eligibility for participation and vesting in any employee welfare benefit plan, employee pension benefit plan, or employee fringe benefit arrangement established or maintained by the Purchaser, the Purchaser will recognize such employee’s cumulative prior service with the Company.

I LOVE Transcend!!!!!!!!!

Love Transcend
I have been with Transcend for two years and I plan to retire here. The benefits are great, just started a 401-K match, the people are supportive.
Thank you! I will take the work. I love Transcend!
I love transcend. They have a great rep with MLS...
Any company with over 600 MLS will have some happy, some not so happy - but to say "shady" I take offense to. I really love the company and many people agree with me
I love Transcend, have been there for years...
started with MDI. The offshore component is mostly on Escription, and has never affected my workload.

Transcend is a good company; they treat me well and I make great money - I could care less if they offshore. Then again, I also have a Samsung TV, a German car and many things made in China!
Used to love Transcend, now no work.
Iused to make good money, did not even mind editing, but now I have to work 18 hours a day to try to get 1200 lines because all the work is taken. I have to ask permission to work outside my regular hours - absolutely no work on my regular hours now, have to beg for work all the time and my supervisors do not care. I used to make good money, now I qualify for food stamps. I've worked for my accounts for a long time and if this is a sign of what's going to happen to everyone else at the company, good luck.
I love Transcend. Lots of work, sm
great communication, flexibility.
I love Transcend. I've worked for MANY
I agree. Hate Transcend but love Robert..nm
I totally disagree, I love Transcend... there are a lot of companies out there..
instead of complaining, why don't you find another. Life is way too short, as someone said.

I work for Transcend, love them, but right now a few accounts are slow..so depending on which you
were hired for, do not get your expectations too high. The work can flucuate the key is flexibiltiy. If you have to have a set schedule, I would double check on the work flow for your shift on your account. I would hope that they could be honest, and if I know them, they will be.
Love, love, love TransTech! Not overhiring, just growing like crazy!
I too love path & can't find it at home & would love to cross-train into rad in the meantime I do
They don't want the MTs to speak with SM
each other because they might share information on line rate, how easy/hard the accounts are and MOSTLY because they do have favorites who get flexible schedules, high line rate and cake accounts and they don't want groups of people emailing each other and discovering this.
speak for yourself
I have a friend who works there and makes over 75,000 a year.
Speak for yourself
I think you have it backwards. There has never been any mass exodus unless you consider 3-4 people a mass exodus. Actually, those 3-4 people might still be with the company if not for a certain someone who egged them on until they quit. This person herself stayed on for another couple of years trying to stir the pot with complaints about fabricated events. This person finally left a few months ago.

Crap happens, no matter where you are, who you are, or what you do.

Transcend is STILL a good place to work.

Too bad so many people don't have the wherewithall to actually work for a company longer than a few weeks before they come to false conclusions about a place and then quit.
speak for yourself
I have been an MT now for 7-1/2 years and make 50K. Not sure of how many babysitters do that in 40 hours.
I can't speak for everyone, but I like it here
I have a great lead, who is very knowledgeable, kind and even funny at times - and she tries her best to keep things running smoothly, and pleasant. I don't know how the other leads are, but I would at least give them a chance. I've got no complaints.
Did you really speak to him?
I was a one of those MTs who made 3cpl.  If he denies that they pay newbies this amount...he is lying.  If he denies that you have to wait a month or more to be paid...he is lying...unless something has changed.
I can't speak for anybody else,
but as far as these posts go, I use the same initials all the time, so no, I haven't posted multiple times under different names, but I do know of several people who quit this place because of the owners nastiness, and lack of work. Even a QA person quit who was getting paid hourly, in one week she had a total of 6 hours work, nobody can live on that. I was there eight months and they kept promising me work, but it never came. It's landmark and made up of disgruntled ex-MQers.
Can't speak for all MTs but I have been
MTing for about 5 years and looking to get out of this field.  I do not want to be an old timer.  I have found out that hard work does not always pay off in this field.  I worked 7 days a week with this company because I was eager to learn the account, learn the dictators and bring up my line count.  When my lines got into the extra money range -- BOOM - here come dictators that were not around previously.  I'm sick and tired of the games MTSOs play and don't want to complain about the same thing 25 years from now.  The other thing is this - they are looking for people to work the holiday with no incentive.  As far as I'm concerned - let the owner of the company work.  I'm tired of their games.   
Not everyone is smart enough to get out of a terrible work enviornment, and that is why they are still in business.
please don't speak for all of us

I have no interest in this company either, but I dislike board bullies who tell people what they should or should not post about.  Another pet peeve -- responders with check the archives reply.  We can post and respond to what we like -- we do not need people (besides moderators) patrolling these boards.  Think Dwight on The Office . . . . you are he!


Can't speak for everyone else, but...
I got fed up with everyone bashing me for making positive comments! I love my job at Keystrokes. I have been here since January and am very satisfied with my primary account and my direct deposit paychecks.

I have answered several posters requesting information about Keystrokes, but, frankly, I do not appreciate the negativity I was shown in response from some anonymous posters. Therefore, I chose not to respond to this post - but I guess I did, anyway!
I can't speak for TT
but I use the cntr I feature where I work and what I see is what I get paid for, this already has headers and footers taken out, and I don't find anything amiss with it. I find it to be very fair and accurate. Guess every company has their own way of what they count and what they don't and is totally up to their discretion.
I can only speak for myself, but (sm)
I was told that my doctors would be about 50:50.  That was 2 years ago.  I have since added several backup accts that have more ESLs than the original one; but I have yet to encounter one where I had that bad of a time with it.  Like the above poster said, you can pretty much figure out what they are saying by looking at samples; also, as someone else said, more than allowed # of blanks, give to QA.  I wish I knew what this acct was everybody is complaining about (I'm thinking it might be the one I do).  First initial of the place maybe?  Can we do that?
I cannot speak for others, but I was .....sm
asked to go part-time.  I basically lost all my benefits when I went part-time though.  They worked with me for as long as they could, but we just came to an agreement and that is what I did.  I am not sure what others have done though, so I would go to your supervisor and tell her your concerns and see what you can work out with them, as they tried their best to work with me, so they should work with you.  Good luck. 
You speak for most of us
Have to speak up here.
Amphion's accounts used various degrees of BOS and some none at all. In fact, there were accounts that required you to capitalize every drug, generic or name brand. They don't strictly follow the AAMT BOS, they follow their own rules, and many different ones at that.
That does not mean they do not speak clearly.
please don't speak for me
we are ALL not in a sad state. and ya know what.... right now this is my dream job. I'm happy as a clam.
Speak for yourself. 50K is OK with me. nm

Can't speak for others, but
I've never even come close to running out of work. The platform is great, there's a fair amount of flexibility, and the people are absolutely wonderful. Webmedx was just named 2008 AHDI Employer of the Year -- and it didn't surprise me at all!

yourself.  There is every arrangement from nuts to diapers in this industry. People need to learn to speak their own experience what happenned, not conjecture.  In turn, let people speak their opinion and dont say they're so wrong.  I have worked in manyh responsible jobs in m life... in hospitals.  Nothing has come close to beating me up like this industry.  And I'm working on it! 
Well, at least they speak...
...the same language....sort of!
I can't speak for TT...
But I have worked for Keystrokes, and I found management there to be extremely flaky.  I guess it depends on what exactly you are looking for.  The pay is okay.  They are pretty flexible with scheduling, but you will not get overtime there despite the fact that many leads there push for the MTs to work overtime on a regular basis.  I'm sure there are other MTs here who work for them and can give you additional opinions.
Speak for yourself!
I get so tired of hearing the discouraging side of this job. I for one am very happy and do very well as being an MT. I make 11 cpl/60-character line, have excellent health insurance (110.00 a month for family), and the flexibility of working the hours I want to. I have worked for a hospital for 17 years, been home now for about 13 of those years. I am an employee and could go nowhere else and make 25 to 28.00 an hour like I'm currently doing. We all need to support each other. There are good jobs out there, but sometimes you have to look for them or make the best of the job you do have.
You don’t speak for everyone- should be I want her here
You are assuming because apparently not everyone delights in her postings.
Love this company, love my boss, very informative QA.nm.
Speak for yourself, but I'm a rather shapely 56-y-o MT whose been sm
transcribing over 30 years.  I stay trim making several trips to the fridge daily. 
I'm a recruiter. I can only speak for myself, but
I would never post a rah-rah email on a board. Maybe others do, but it really kinda makes me sick to my stomach to think that they might.

I keep an eye on the boards, but I certainly don't run to management to report on State of the Boards. If they want to know, they can read it themselves!

Good thoughts in the post above, though!
Once again you are way off base. I can only speak for myself
and about 20 other people who left OSi a little while back and we are all doing great, couldn't be happier, all working for a great company with awesome people. To be quite honest with you....you are our entertainment!

If things were so good at OSi you wouldn't be on here trying to draw MTs in for them. OSi is over, face it punkin!
I would speak with a recruiter
The line rate could vary according to experience, office, account, etcetera. I only know what I was offered and would not want to steer anyone in the wrong direction. As I said before, it was about midline according to what most nationals are offering, but the great account I have plus the wonderful platform allow me to make more in the longrun with increased production. I have been with 3 other nationals and really feel I have found my "home" with Cymed.
I'd really like to speak to you about radiology at MQ.
Can I email you or would you email me?


Thank you!

why speak of loyalty when as MTs
Hasn't anyone noticed? This business is a sweat shop.... these MTSO have it made. They get cheap offshore workers and housewives and moms dying to work at home, busting their butts, turning their homes into sweatshops. Be loyal to WHOM? The company that treats you like crap and CUTS YOUR PAY and talks to you like you are an idiot? Oh yeah, RIGHT hahahaha you are nutso babes!
"We have all tried that?" How can you speak for everyone? sm

I did complain and received a tertiary account.  It did get a bit slow for a few weeks around the holidays, but everything seems full speed ahead now and I have more work that I can get done.  I never considered quitting.   MDI has been very good to me.  Sorry your experience was not the same.  :(


Sorry..but if you speak the truth, you are
The archives and the history speak louder than your words
Don't speak for me-you don't know who I work for
I already stated I do not work for JLG. You said you wasted 2 weeks on an interviewing process which you later recanted by stating you weren't applying for a job, so your credibility is shot to smithereens. If I were to place all my confidence in your vague, childlike claims based on your 2 weeks of interaction with the company, then I would classify myself as having a low IQ.

On the other hand, anyone here reading this (ugly word edited for the moderator's sake) thread can do a Google search based on the owner's name and find postings going back greater than a decade. They can then read those postings and use their higher level IQs to formulate an informed opinion/decision of the owner. Since I've had the benefit of reading the owner's posting for a decade, I have formed an opinion of her that blocks out your (ugly word left out for the moderator's benefit) brief, biased and vague claims of lying which you have yet to provide clear details of. With each post, it appears your IQ drops.
